Excerpt: The EFI eXpress 4.5 RIP will not run on the latest MAC OS (10.10)!The Epson 9890 is a great machine, but don't buy the Designer Edition that's bundled with this outdated software--it's a RIP-OFF!
Excerpt: With extra RIP software, I regularly print 15 ft long x 44 inch wide on glossy paper in about 40 minutes. Fast with great print and color quality, but with some issues. Roll paper has problems loading properly, very very annoying. Exactly 2 years after purchasing, the print head goes out.
Excerpt: We have this printer in operation for about a year now. We print quite a bit... so far went through about 500 Ft of roll paper. We loaded the printer with Chinese ink and run compatible cartridges that can be refilled.
Pros: Durable construction, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable
Excerpt: I've had extensive experience with plotters and this is simply the most irritating yet. Everything has to be controlled through the touch panel. If you cancel the printing it carries on as if it is doing it without printing, so you can wait 30-40 minutes before you can resend it to print, God help...
Excerpt: I give it 1 star because when it ACTUALLY prints its gorgeous. BUT it is super delicate and not as user friendly as one would hope. You must keep this printer super clean, keep a sheet over it so it doesn't get dirty, a speck of dust will destroy any chances of getting the paper to feed properly.
Excerpt: I am using this printer to print most onto high quality matte paper, both for black and white and color prints Black and White: Matte black ink makes diference on the gray scale Color: My landscape pictures, looks great I love this printer!!!
