Epson Stylus Pro 3880
The Bottom Line
For anyone else though that has any other sort of desktop photo printer, including older Epson models, I would say that the 3880 makes a compelling case for itself. It of course lacks roll paper capability, and is limited to 17" width paper, but one can always cut lengths from a roll and feed them manually, and in any event, 17X22" is about as big as most people usually need to print and is at the limits of what current DSLRs are capable of printing at reasonable PPI output.

Our Favorite Online User Reviews for the 3880
Even without knowledge of color management, you should be able to produce gallery-quality prints right out of the box.
The Epson 3880 yields high quality prints that have great longevity. My only negative is that I feel their durability should be better.
The 3880 is an excellent printer. It's two generations newer than the Epson 2200, which was the first reasonably priced high quality color inkjet for photos. Epson has moved the bar again, and when you look at the prints, it's hard to know what more one could ask for.
