I've been babying/abusing my 7 year old Epson 4900 but it's seen better days. I got an estimate to service it that just does not make sense. So out with the old and in with the new. I got a new Epson P50000 a slightly upgraded but basically the same machine.
I do like to print real photos. I guess it goes back to my days working in studios doing darkroom work. FWIW Epson currently was a $400 rebate on this unit but it must be invoiced by June 30th.
