I still go to this site when I have a question with my 3880:  http://people.csail.mit.edu/ericchan/dp/Epson3800/index.html

There's no reasonable way to give a single answer - which is why Epson's figures are considered conservative and why you have a lot of stories about them lasting well beyond the listed dates and basically no stories of them going bad early.

It depends on a number of environmental considerations (heat, light, pressure, humidity, transport) so they will last longer in some environments compared to others.  Essentially, the Epson guidelines are "worst case scenario".

Much like everything else on this planet.

I've just installed carts that were a year out of date in a 3800 and everything looks fine.

Any updates on a new 3880?

I am hoping Epson adds gloss optimizer to the 3880's successor and it will be fine for me. I am running a R2000 and 3880 right now. Just about wore out the R2000 transport system.

If Epson replaces the 3880 this year it will likely be announced in late summer, available at full price around December, and rebated price will hit in March or April.  Epson has no major competition in that size printer right now so they may keep the 3880 current for another year IMO.
