Epson R3000 + Gutenprint OS X, any better than Epson drivers?
Dec 1, 2011

I just got an Epson R3000. Yay!!!

Is there any reason to use the Gutenprint R3000 driver vs the official Epson driver? I happen to have the Gutenprint drivers installed for other stuff, and noticed that they have an R3000 driver.

Unless there's some gain in print quality or some valuable configurability offered by Gutenprint, I'm inclined to stick with the Epson drivers....

On a side note: I'm a little perturbed that the thing came with 1/4 full ink cartridges. Somehow my research failed to reveal that. I mean I know it's technically not a "Pro" printer, but please.... save the cheap tactics for the $50 printers. Maybe I should have bought a 3880 just so I'd be taken seriously.
