Exclamation Don't buy the Epson 2000p!!

It's replacement will be here soon, and it's cheaper than the 2000!

You beat me to it Greg! I just logged in to post this and you already have!

Hmmm - maybe I'll wait a while longer before I get the "printer of my dreams."

Boy, I just hate it when the new models come out. Guess I have to pretend I didn't read this and be happy with the OLD version. Wonder if the inks deal with that metamerism problem? I didn't catch that but I read the article fast.

Same here...I was literally about two weeks away from buying a 1280 and "Inkjet news" just popped into my Inbox about 5 minutes ago with this info. I think I will wait until later this summer to purchase a printer!

Yup - I was SO ready to buy the 1280! I don't know that I'll be the first to buy the 2200P though - I'd like to know what problems others run into before I plunk down the big bucks!

DJ - I just read the article more in depth than my initial scan and it doesn't say anything about the metamerism issue. (And I was reading specifically for that issue.) However, Inkjet News says they'll have more info after April 30 and I can't imagine that they won't address it - since they've defined the problem pretty well on their site.

Wonder if they'd take a trade in. Mines about a year old now and the price you pay for these babies doesn't make quick to replace. By the time I'm ready for a new one, they will be up to the 4000 models.

Well, by the time you're able to get a new one, we'll be drooling over your "good fortune" while we're stuck with our "old" technology!

The 2000p is still going for over $900 here....I wonder what kind of deal you can get once the new one comes out, considering it's only going to sell for $699?

DJ - they really should offer some kind of trade in.

Hey we don't even have a regular printer. Our Cannon died as soon as it saw the competition (the Epson). My son got an HP at a garage sale for 3 bucks so now I have to use the network to print anything other than photos on his little HP. Yes, it's hard work and I have to get out of my chair to go turn it on in his room and make sure his computer is on. (Am I earning sympathy here yet?) I tried buying one the same way after he got such a good deal and all I wound up with was another printer that didn't work and my husband saying " what the heck did you buy that for?" I totally forgot the whole point of this reply. Oh yes now I remember. I'm poor!!! These computers are eating up all our money!! Everytime we buy the newest toy on the market it's old by the time it comes out of the box. UGH!!

eBay might be a place to sell...

On 4/23/02 an Epson 2000p sold on eBay for $530. None up for auction at the moment, but with this announcement more could be headed for auction.

GR-eatly appreciate the post, Greg (and 'almost post,' Jeanie ). I wuz seriously thinking about taking this plunge.

This little gem warrants another couple bucks for the annual Retouchpro.com Telethon jar! (Would that make some of you, "Doug's Kids"? )
