Summary: I bought my 4000 in 2003, and it's been trouble free, delivering fantastic color prints. Yes, the ink is expensive, but the large sizes last. The occasional clogged nozzles only occur after long periods of non-use.
Summary: What a costly frustrating mess. I think I'll just put it out by the curb on trash pickup day. I don't need this frustration in my life - not to mention the expense. I just puchased all new inks - hoping - but still clogs clogs clogs and more clogs. DON'T THINK OF BUYING THIS LEMON!
Excellent, for awhile. But Epson has abandoned the 4000.

Summary: On the good side, initial prints are very, very good, and the printer is very versatile as to media. You will love it, except for hand feeding media from the top, since it must be perfectly aligned without having effective paper guides to help.
Summary: I wanted a good wide format printer for me photo buisness and as discribed this was one but it seems like it might not have been used for some time it was probably working good the last time it was used but when i got it one of the print heads was badly cloged and is going to have to be profetionaly...
Summary: The Epson 4000 is still- by far- one of the finest printers available today. One important aspect is: you can set this up as a DUAL cmyk printer and also use refuillable cartridges- Epson didnt make programming changes until the 4800 series which made it much more difficult to use aftermarket...
Epson Stylus Pro® 4000 InkJet Printer, art in ink!
4 December 2007
Summary: I have a photo studio and do all my own printing. I use the Kodak dye sub products but was missing the "over 8x10" prints. I read up on inkjet and found the Epson Stylus Pro line to be the most recommended. After purchasing the Stylus Pro 4000, I can see why.
Summary: There has hardly been a day without trouble on my Epson Stylus Pro 4000. Invalid media, wrong feed location, misaligned paper, clogged nozzles etc my log book is full of the problems I have with this printer. It takes considerable time to persuade the printer to do a print job.
Summary: FACTS When the ink jets are not clogged in works great. I spend more money on head cleanings that I do prints. Buy a few extra maintence tanks, you'll need them. Eight of the the big cartrages will cost you only 800 dollers !
