I am currently attempting to get some support from Epson, with no luck so far. This leaves me gravely dissappointed and even though I have used Epson ink and printers over the last 15 years, it has now swayed me towards other brands. I was planning to move up format to A2 with Epson, but this idea has been shelved.
Having read so many similar owners' problems with R3000, I consider there must be a fundamental design or quality control problem with the black ink channel. I would expect Epson to come up with a fix & agree to come half way to meet repair/ replacement costs. But that does not seem to be the case - instead Epson have bought out a new model! I understand there are many users very satified with the R3000, but once a failure occurs and no economic solution is found, then you are left with an expensive pile of junk. After 3 years I really do not feel I have had the value from this printer.
The printer came with a complete set of regular capacity ink cartridges (not the XL epson turtle ones). During the initial setup and charging of the ink feed lines I'd estimate it used up about 15% of the ink that came with it, but be aware, future cartridges will last a lot longer as this step won't be required.
Using a fully calibrated work flow (ambient light adjustment, monitor calibration, camera calibration etc) the initial prints were a little dark and the colours were off. We spent a whole day adjusting and burning through ink getting the lightroom and local printer profiles set correctly, but after that everything was spot on.
Comparing the prints from the R3000 using cheap gloss photo paper with those from a professional print lab (ProAm) on FujiFilm paper, I have to say the R3000 produces superior quality, although this may be down to the advantages of having the printer close by so you can adjust your profiles on the fly to get them perfect.
Connecting to the wireless network was a doddle (yes your prints do take longer but as the printer is in the loft this way we can set a batch off from our workstations and just go and grab them all when they're finished).
You do waste about 40mm of paper when printing on a roll due to the amount it spools out for the cutting edge, but being able to print up to 1.5 metres (it can possibly go larger but that's the most we tested) definitely makes up for losing a tiny bit.
I did accidentally load in some paper back to front (glossy side facing back with the unprintable rear side receiving the ink) which caused massive ink pooling and blotches on future prints and required me to feed through about 75cm of paper in cleaning mode to absorb the extra ink and have the prints coming out perfect again. A costly mistake to make, but one of user error and not the fault of the printer, it's just a teeny bit irksome that the printer (or manual or online help) doesn't give you any feedback on what to do in this instance and you have to work it out for yourself and cross your fingers that you're not making matters worse.
I cannot comment on robustness as the printer is less than 48 hours old in my home, but so far I'm very happy with the purchase.
The problem of not recognising the Epson cartridges persists. Every time you switch it on - you never know if one or another cartridge fails to be recognised. Then you spend 20 mins fiddling around until it finally does. Then just when you think you've done it - some other cartridge is not recognised. Maybe it's a fault with my machine but I'd like to hear from others with the same problem. For this reason - I'd not chance another Epson printer. An earlier one had the same problem which drove me nuts.
