Customer Reviews

If I could, I would give this printer a zero star rating.
murphy the red
The nozzles clog constantly requiring requiring me to run a cleaning cycle which uses a lot of expensive ink which translates to even more money for Epson.
Betty Wiley
I will never buy another Epson printer again, and I've used them for 20 years.

The SP4900 is in many ways an awesome printer. And its ability to print exquisitely on canvas rolls puts it, for me, in another league. For reference, I have owned (and still do) Epson 2200 & SP 3880 printers. In comparison, the 4900 is industrial sized. So I made a specific table for it & keep it in a separate room, connected to my custom desktop with a 20 ft. USB cable. Yes, I know Epson says max of 10 ft. but that's conservative. I have WIFI, but I don't trust it for such huge files.
For quality comparison, I profiled 2 versions of a recent photo of fall foliage in NY for both the 3880 & the 4900 on premium luster paper, then showed them to various friends & family for blind comparison (only I knew which was which). No one failed to find the 4900 version more appealing, more vibrant. Those extra colors are apparently not for naught.
My initial experience with the printer was all joy: at the quality & the ability to keep rolls of paper installed under a cover, and still easily switch over to sheets. That soon changed to frustration, as the next time I tried to print (two weeks later, as I live in two States & go back & forth) resulted in a wasted picture with missing pigment. Two cleaning cycles later, still no better. So I called Epson & was advised to use the "power cleaning" (the one the manual warns wastes lots of ink). After 2 cycles of that, we were back to normal. At this point I asked the Epson rep if this meant that the 4900 was like my 2200, which was noted for clogging up & needing frequent cleaning, rather than my 3880, which has never clogged (both in dry Arizona). Not at all, he said, this was new technology, it should not happen. Next trip back led to the same problem, now needing 3 cycles with power cleaning.

September 2011:

First, the good news. The Epson 4900 Stylus Pro is an awesome printer. It is built like a tank. The images are truly remakable, as it is designed as a photographer's dream come true. The colors are crisp, the high resolution is quite remarkable. I am impressed. Black and White photography was of very little interest to me, but now I am inspired to use the power that only black and white images convey. They render images in a timeless perspective. The wide color gamut at 2880 x 1440 dpi is equally splendid. You will NOT get this level of print from a one hour photo store.

I am highly satisfied with Epson Ultra Premium Glossy Paper. It is a heavy weight paper. Also, the Premium Luster papers are excellent. The Enhanced Matte 17 inch x 100 ft roll paper is great for black and white images. Printing on wide 17 inch roll paper takes desktop photo printing to the next level. I finally printed one of my favorite photographic works, a 36 x 17 inch panoromic scene - 6 images stitched together; shot at Lake of the Clouds in the fall of 2010. The seasonal fall colors were at peek fall colors in Michigan's upper pennisula. The greens, red, orange, blue color is true to lifelike. I have only used the printer for a few weeks, but I am sure that many years of pleasure are to follow.

Now, the bad news. It is expensive, and it is too large for the casual user's needs. I was shocked by the size and weight, even after reading about those specs. The Epson 4900 isn't designed to print web pages, letters, or simple graphics. This would understate its magnificent photographic intent. I have only used the highest resolution, but the longer wait is worthwhile.

I seldom make such sky is falling statements but there is no other explanation but that there is some serious defect with the Epson 4900. I am only concerned and perplexed that I haven't seen anyone else mention it. Please let me know if you are having this problem too because I don't know how to move on with it. Epson doesn't seem to be capable of fixing it.

Here is the long story:

Hi everyone,

I wanted to see if anyone has had the same problems that I've been having with the Epson Stylus Pro 4900, Epson's newest 17 inch inkjet printer. I bought it 4-5 months ago and enjoyed great seamless printing experience for the first 4.5 months.

In the last few weeks, it started to stop printing mid way, somewhat randomly and intermittently, printing everything the first few tries, and then printing only a few inches and sometimes 3/4s of the way through. My ucf files (where the print settings were saved) would also reset itself for no apparent reason and I would lose all my settings and if I were in the middle of a print job, it would default to letter 8.5 x 11 and I would get a misprint.

The biggest problem is of course, as above, not finishing the print job. Absolutely NO error messages, sometimes an 'operations with the printer not complete' will show up on the print dialogue box when this happens, but its not consistent. Problem shows up via crossover ethernet connection and usb cable in 1 machine and 1 laptops running Vista 64 bit. (same Epson Driver).

So I called Epson, after two different phone service calls, and trying everything possible from reinstalling drivers, resetting up the network, Epson said get a local service station guy to come out to see it on Epson Warranty.
