Epson Stylus Pro XL -- Blowout?

Epson Stylus Pro XL -- Blowout?

Post by Jeff Gilber » Wed, 29 Oct 1997 04:00:00



Hi hi hi.

I've seen the Epson Stylus Color Pro, last year's 8.5 x 11 model, being
blown out for $199 in the catalogs. Amazing price.

Has anyone seen similar blowout pricing on the Stylus Color Pro XL, last
year's 11 x 17 (+) model?

Thanksamillion.

Have not seen any catalog blowouts on the XL, but bought a
like-new-in-the-box at a local dealer's "liquidation" sale held once per
year at the MN State Fairgrounds. Got it for $750, where best catalog price
I saw is $1.3K. There were two XL printers sold, by GE Capital ITS, a
national VAR. You may have better luck looking in this venue.

It works great, especially with the XL RIP w/Pantone colors and Ethernet
options.

There are advantages with the new Epson Color Stylus 3000, such as 6
separate color tanks and 1440x720 dpi, better than the 720x720 dpi in 1
cartridge on the XL. It probably is quite good with fleshtones, needed for
fashion photography.
