Hi 3880 users,
getting ready to order the 3880
just wandering if its important to get the 3yr protection plan or not

On the average, extended warranties are like giving away your money. They make more money than selling the printer. The epson 3880 is very reliable.

Consider that you get $300 rebate on a new 3880 which puts the cost to $820 at Adorama or B&H. About $500 in inks are included, so this means the printer itself is costing you $320. Then, you would consider spending $300 for a extended warranty of a $300 printer, based on a 1 in 500 chance that you might need a repair?

You might be better off buying two printers, using the inks and keeping the 2nd printer unused. You can always sell the unused printer for as much or more than it cost, and you can't resell the warranty.

x2. Great advice.

Thanks for that USA, didn't quite analyzed it that way
guess I'm good to go
