I went to the dealer release in New Zealand about 3 months ago and saw
a sample print on a A3 sheet of paper. I was most impressed with the
qualitity but like most computer printers the result is in the
eye of the beholder. Apparently the new technology simulates 2 x 720dpi
print but Epson will not be promoting it as such. This is according to
Epson (NZ) Ltd. I use the version one model of the A4 colour stylus and
I'm satified with the prints for pre press samples.
Hope to about your replies.
