Hi, I have an Epson 3880 printer. It is working and doing a good job, but I am getting a little afraid it may die any day now. When it does, a P800 is the natural replacement, but the P800 is already getting old. It was announced in April 2015. So, when do you think the P800 will be replaced?

    Might be worth a call or email to Epson Bob. I'm sure if you tell them you will buy some other printer if there is't a new one in the pipeline they will tell you. ;)

    The new model will be released the day after you buy a new one to replace the current one after it dies. Honestly it’s a printer, there’s been no big innovation in that space for many years now, get one when you need it.
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    The P800 is a good printer, P5000 is not that much more and 10 color. I got a P5000 two months ago and it's way better than my old 4900. Even the P800 would be a nice improvement over the 3880.

    The roll paper adapter for the P800 cost $200 extra and included with the P5000. Ink costs .69 per ml for the P800 and .44 per ml for the P5000.

    There is currently a $300 rebate on the P800 and $400 on the P5000.

    Hope that helps.
