Confirming Epson’s ongoing superiority in photo printers, the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 has been recognised as the best photo printer in Europe in 2008 by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), the second time in two years that Epson has won this award.

The EISA Photo judging panel was particularly impressed with the exceptional print quality produced by the Epson Stylus Photo R2880:

“The print quality produced by the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 is superb, especially when it is combined with Epson photo papers. A3+ prints from the Stylus R2880 are extremely detailed, and even the subtlest colour changes are rendered smoothly and gradually. Because three different black inks can be used (light black, light-light black and photo black) tonal gradation is perfect in black and white prints.”

The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 was launched in Australia in June this year and features UltraChrome K3 Ink with Vivid Magenta, a revolutionary pigment ink technology that delivers the highest quality colour and black and white prints available in professional inkjet printing.

Last year EISA voted the Epson Stylus Pro 3800 as the best European Photo Printer, 2007-2008. The Epson Stylus Pro 3800 produces archival quality pictures up to A2 format with Epson’s UltraChrome K3 eight colour pigment ink.
