Excerpt: I use this printer on a semi regular basis.Sometimes it sits idle for three weeks. When it sits idle that long it may need a nozzle cleaning, but not always. I have had this printer for 20 months and really have no complaints.
Excerpt: print heads started to clog before the end of my first 100 foot roll. should have done more research before choosing this printer. looks like this is typical. Not fun trying to maintain a new printer. DO NOT BUY
Excerpt: I had this printer for 2 years and 2 weeks before I started getting an unclearable clog in my light black nozzle. No matter what I've done, it only seems to get worse. Do not, I repeat, do not buy this printer with the extended warranty. It's expensive, but theirs a reason for it.
Excerpt: Great printer.. but.. It's soooo high maintenance. You cannot leave this printer alone for 2 days max or all its nozzles will clog. Which requires cleaning, and cleaning uses up ink. And Ink is very expensive.So, unless your pumping out a lot of projects, do not buy this printer.
Pros: Awesome Prints
Cons: Delicate, Heavy, High Maintenance, Wears Easily
Excerpt: I have had the 7900 for over 10 months and have made about 700 prints to date. Prior to the purchase, I read many reviews that complained about nozzle clogs that were difficult or impossible to clear.
Excerpt: works well in an educational setting. our 7900s are used daily by a student body of 200+. consistent colors, spot on paper profiles and easily maintainable print heads. Consistent Nozzle Checks for low used printers keeps pigments fresh.
Excerpt: I would be considered a light user and this printer is designed for heavy duty use. I purchased this in Oct. 2012 and have had problems with clogged nozzles. I did nozzle cleanings after nozzle cleanings which worked and I was able to print.
Excerpt: I have enjoyed really great prints from my Stylus Pro 3880 for several years, but wanted to be able to print larger than 38in x 17in. Unfortunately, I just don't have the space in my "den" for a 9900, so settled for a 7900.
