Default Re: R3000 Epson DTG Printer

Hey lmclain, I'd be very cautious with this one. I don't like to see new buyers get taken advantage of. What you're looking at is a Spectra 3000 knock off. This seller is trying to fool you into thinking you're getting a Spectra 3000 equivalent for thousands less. You won't. There is more to making a good DTG like the Spectra than just adapting a good printer. One example is to look at how the platen is driven. On a good DTG like the Spectra, you'll find an industrial grade system that's ready to print all day. On these cheap knockoffs, you'll find the platen is driven by the original paper motor, which was never intended to move so much weight and will wear down over time. Trusting a knock-off like this to save a little money will get you an expensive paperweight that can't print ****. Even that video is suspect. The Ebay ad says don't buy from China, but the video is a Chinese DTG based on the Epson 2000. It looks nothing like the 3000 they claim to be selling. Look at the video and Ebay listing again. You'll see they don't quite match up. It's pretty shady, and not the kind of business I'd want to trust with thousands of dollars.

Thank you so much for your input and advice is taken. I asked them to take a picture of the label showing the Epson name on the machine and his reply was "We have sold at least 10 of these on Ebay". This comment does not satisfy my inquiry.

I will stick with the Spectra 3000. Thank you so very much.

I agree, be very cautious. If it looks questionable, it probably is.
It sounds like they are trying to confuse unsuspecting buyers with the name.

I'm curious as to why the guy kneeling on the floor has his finger on the top cover of the printer. Is he keeping it from shaking? And why is the printer on the floor?

I think you miss understand me. I don't make these printers. They are made in Utah by another company. Not trying to be anything I was or am not. We purchased one of these and liked them so much we started selling them.

I was speaking as a customer because I am a customer.

Not trying to hide anything by suggesting they call other customers like me who like them.

If you thought otherwise my apologies.

Also there is a thread here on Mesaprint. I think it was not the Epson R3000 but it is the thread (GASP) of another happy Mesaprint customer.

For your viewing pleasure...

Thanks German for explaining. I Just explain my experience with the printer. I just felt like I was being trashed by that one fellow for something I did not do.
My first contact with with most folks includes a statement about joining this forum so I felt like I needed to chime in.
Thanks for further explaining Mesaprint.

Just to explain, the reason why you may have had some backlash is because we frown upon self promotional posts here.

So when your posts aren't fully transparent (like mentioning you are a seller of the machine you are writing rave reviews for...*before* you make the posts), then it can raise some red flags

You explained the situation, the member has gotten some feedback on the printer they are looking into, so hopefully things can move on from here

No problem I fully understand that I should have been less off the cuff and more thorough in my post. I was just trying to say that we use one and love it.
Now I have a question. I do state in the above that the printer is "direct drive" when ya'll read that does this say "friction drive" to you or should it just say friction? As this seems to be a big deal with which type machine is chosen. Thanks in advance.
