Epson Stylus Pro 3800 large-format photo printer

Epson Stylus Pro 3800

 

The Stylus Pro 3800 is small enough to be a genuine desktop printer, yet produces images of a quality you would expect from larger production printers

No need to change between different black inks, wide range of media available, wide colour gamut, print driver supports Intel Macs

No roll feeder which makes it diffi cult to print panoramas, printer changes between photo and matte black inks, not as robust as other professional printers

The Stylus Pro 3800 overcomes the main limitation of the 4800 in so far as you don’t have to keep swapping ink cartridges around. It’s also slightly smaller and quite a lot cheaper. The only real fault is the lack of a roll-feeder option, which is...

Stylus Pro 3800

 

Epson's new Stylus Pro 3800 fills a gap in Epson's range between the A3+ Stylus Photo R2400 and the heavier-duty A2+ Stylus Pro 4800.

High quality photographic images on sheets from A6 to A2+. Excellent B&W prints. Holds both gloss and matt inks.

No roll feeder. Flimsier than the Stylus Pro 4800.

R2400 cartridges cost around £9 each (which works out at around £770 per litre) and require frequent replacement. The larger 3800 cartridges cost £30 plus VAT (about £380 per litre). The 4800 can take either 110ml or 220ml cartridges at £37 plus VAT or...

Epson Stylus Pro 3800 Standard Model

 

Large-capacity ink cartridges ; Prints on thick papers up to 17 inches by 22 inches ; Superior print quality on all paper types ; Long-lasting prints

Switching between matte and photo papers wastes ink

Service and support

 

Epson Stylus Pro 3800

Class-leading black-and-white printing; lots of paper options; long-lived prints; large ink cartridges.

Expensive; large footprint; no roll feed.

Epson's least expensive pro-series printer yet, the Stylus Pro 3800 is sure to dominate among pros, prosumers, and big-spending amateurs alike.
