It isn't worth getting free....

Nordic, Adorama
4 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The head clogs, although it prints beautiful and awesome prints, the Epson inks are apparently the problem. Don't buy it! It wouldn't be worth it free.

A lemon of a printer

A-Jump Books, Amazon
8 June 2014
  • Summary: Terminal clogs on multiple inks. I have other Epson printers that are fine, including a 9890. The 4900 is expensive, has a huge footprint for a 17" printer, and is useless. Don't buy this printer. Your options are to get a 3880, or, if you need roll paper capabilities, step up to a 7890 or 7900.

A drag

Paul, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: I was initially happy with the quality of prints coming out of this printer. Unfortunately, as so many other reviewers have stated, the heads clog, and despite multiple cleanings and cleaning methods there is no apparent solution to that problem thus rendering the printer useless, and Epson will do nothing to support the people who paid good money for this piece of junk-they should be ashamed.

Clog clog clog clog clog clog clog.

Precision Pixel Studios, LLC, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this printer at least two years ago. I have wasted far more ink (and time) with efforts of unclogging the nozzles than I have with actual photo or art prints. I have friends with this same printer who have had the same clog-fest experience. Stay away from this junk. I feel foolish for falling for the marketing gimmick stating that clogs are a thing of the past.

Great Quality But No Longevity

Stephen Tosterud, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: Like so many other people, it was difficult to keep my printer from clogging. Now the heads are clogged and service is required. The cost to repair would be almost as much as I paid for the unit. My 4900 is now a huge, heavy paperweight. It didn't even work long enough to drain any of the ink wells - I've never had to purchase replacement ink, and since it doesn't print at all any more, I never will.

Lemon

Nikon Nellie, Adorama
8 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This printer clogs steady and Epsons support is awful once off warranty throw it in the garbage. First one lasted one week and printer head died. They sent another out. Currently trying to unclog 5 of 10 heads that are 100% jammed. Epsons answer is buy another head for $1800. Stay away from the 900 series Epsons.
  • Pros: Prints Well When Working
  • Cons: Bulky, Head A, Heads Clogged Constantly

Stay away from this printer

NoEpsonFan, Adorama
7 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The print heads clog on this printer if it isn't used frequently. If you call Epson with a clogged print head, they will set up a service call for you. The cost of the call and a replacement print head (which they say is probable) is over $1500. I've seen postings suggesting a need to use the printer at least every third day to avoid the clogs. I've had the heads clog in less than a week, so I'd go with the every third day.

what a waste of money

Mrs Natalie Sullivan, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Although there is no denying that the quality of print that comes out is extremely good, this is nothing more than an overpriced paperweight. Just over a year old and ours requires a new part which costs only a little less than what we paid for it. Epson themselves are about as helpful as a chocolate teacup and judging by the customer service team (and the cost of repair) know that this is a fundamentally a rubbish product and most people will have to get it fixed (and...

have owned alot of epson large format printers and this is by far the worst one

the art guy "the art guy", Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: we have owned alot of epson large format printers and this is by far the worst one- lots of print quality and registration issues only 4 months in, film does not line up - it spends a quarter of its running time trying to keep the head unclogged - the shortest lifespan of any printer we have owned - this thing is going to put me out of business- almost a 3rd of the work a has to be reprinted- my customers are not happy and do not want to hear about the printers...
