So the 3000 should even produce better prints, or?

The 3880 is optimized for larger prints, hence the different specs.

The only time you’d ever see a difference, though, would be on small prints examined very closely, and it might even require a magnifier.

Having said that, unless you need a 17-inch model or are a high-volume printer, the R3000 may be a better choice. For my purposes, the R3000 had a better feature set, and using 80ml of ink within Epson’s recommended six-month time period (after opening) would not have been possible. I know that the ink doesn’t just suddenly go bad on a certain date, but I wouldn’t even come close.
