About a month ago I decided to replace my trusty Epson R 1900 printer that has been my workhorse printer for nearly 5 years. After much research I decided on the Epson SureColor P600. Part of the reason was a $250 rebate. I have to say I am really pleased with this printer. Set up was a breeze, to include wi-fi, drivers, and icc printer profiles. The on-printer LCD screen/information control is a terrific improvement over the R 1900, which did not have this feature. This control panel gives step by step instructions to load a variety of print media and ink status/changing. To date I have printed on canvas, glossy paper, matt paper, fine art paper, and card stock, all of which have been superb in both ease of set up and especially the quality. In each case the colors have been spot on. I haven't printed any Black and White, but I expect the quality to be as good or better than what the R 1900 produced, (the R 1900 was designed to provide high quality B/W prints). The capacity of the ink cartridges is double that of the R 1900 (12ml to 25ml), but , the down side is the cost of each cartridge has more than doubled (bummer).
Overall, I give this printer high marks and expect it to be around for several years. I'll be posting more on this subject as I gain more experience/results.
