I got a 13" printer when they were "giving them away". Great deal and a perfect platform to learn on but now I've ordered something bigger.

Honey, did you bring an extra battery?

Ordered R3880 + 16x100 Primium Luster Archival Re: 13" or 17"?

Thanks for many many posts on this thread and another thread about R3880. R3000, R2000, Pro-10
Finally I ordered R3880, after back and forth between R2000, R3000, Pro-10, and R3880.

I dropped Pro-10 since it only prints 13x19, while other three Epsons can print up to 37" or 44".
I dropped R2000 since it is said R3000 and R3880 work better with B$W.
It then left R3000 and R3880. R3000 can handle roll paper, but it seems not really convenient, and pre-cut the roll paper is not avoidable. If so, I can do the same with R3880.

I also order the first roll paper. The premium Luster Archival, 16x100. It's not 17" wide, but the price is nearly half of 17" roll. I thought about 10" and 13" roll too, but I  have a concern on the ink clog or ink residue on the side if print full bleed, borderless
I don't have anything worth to print 17" yet. 13" may be as wide as I'd go. I'll print ~13" on 16", with border.
After my first roll, I'll probably try Moab Slickrock Metallic.

Anything I should know, before I open and plug my R3880?

If you are setting it up on a network, give it a static IP address; it is easy enough to do through the printer's console menu. If you let it get served by a DHCP server (dynamic allocation from a pool of IP addresses), sooner or later you will lose the connection to it. Then you will be posting back here with a 'can't connect ot printer' thread.

And, if you manage to remove all of the blue tape in the first month, you are doing better than me. I found a piece two years after unpacking it.

Otehrwise have fun, and look into something other than RC papers.
