It’s possible that the R3000 is faulty, but it’s probably more likely that your 4000 was printing too light.  Or perhaps the profiles were deliberately crafted to make lighter prints.  Regardless, making a test print from Joe’s link (I recommend the first printer test image, but any of them will do) should tell you more than comparing prints to a display that’s never been calibrated and is at default brightness.

Judge the print on its own merits, without regard to the way it looks on your display.
