Excerpt: 5 years ago I bought an Epson 9900 44 in printer.Yep; I print big photos for wall art. And I loved the prints and the printer BUT... inkjets would frequently clog, and would require a LOT of ink to clear out. The printer has a automatic setting that cleans the heads every time you use it (LOTS more ink) whether it needs it or not. After a long trip away, I returned to a clogged jet that would not clear.
Summary: Before purchasing these printers read the forums about all the problems they have. Epson's customer service is horrible and super expensive. The printers can print beautifully but they clog easily and getting them unclogged is a huge expensive pain. Do yourself a huge favor and stay clear of these expensive printers. I have an Epson 9900 and it clogs so much I have stopped using it.
Summary: I own a lot of big printers. This one prints beautifully when it works but has terrible ink clogging issues which have now resulted in a bill for a 2000 dollar head replacement. People tell me if you use the printer every day its not an issue so take that advice. If you dont then be ready to spend a lot of time on the luminous landscape forum where there are a lot of angy people.
Summary: This product should be sold as junk, i have never seen such a worthless piece of junk, the inks are to expensive and you waste so much with the cleaning, the printer is very very sloooow , if you need large format go with HP Not epson, hp printers have proven themselves in production Epson should make cameras or some other s***, not printers.
Epson 9900 review - fast and efficient for the most part

Summary: There are things I like and don't like about the Epson 9900. I have two of them now and have had some of their previous models (9880, 9800, 9600). I'll start with the positive. First, the Epson 9900 is fast. It's twice as fast as the 9800, and the speed has increased the efficiency of our work flow. It's also quiet, and like many people we work in close proximity to our printers, so the quiet operation is appreciated.
Summary: Después de tantos años y después de haber utilizado ya diferentes plotters de diversas marcas, nos decidimos finalmente por la Pro 9900. Da una calidad muy buena y sobre todo una gran fiabilidad.
