I am looking forward to reading about his experience in testing the variation in performance among the sample of Epson 3880s that he evaluated.
He teased that his findings would be forthcoming one week ago at TOP.
The Online Photographer: Product Variability, Part I
I did participate in his call for samples. He included very specific instructions and provided a test image in order to standardize his procedure for analysis. For the moment this post is a placeholder. I will link the article that shares his findings as soon as it is published (probably today).
Overall, I am pleased with the prints that I have gotten using the Epson driver. I have not sprung for ImagePrint, although that may be my next purchase.
Do you have any troubles that have been persistent with your 3880?
Papers that just won't give a good print, despite good settings and due diligence on the computer?
