Epson 2200 Stylus Photo Printer

You may begin drooling now, but it won't ship until July

We have another thread on it here.

I wonder how long they will keep the old 2000p at $899?

Once I get the money saved up (late summer) I am going to be getting a 2200...so if no one has done so by then, I would be willing to write up a review.

I hate this. You have to be Bill Gates to keep up with these things. Everytime a new good looking toy comes out, I want it but my bank account has other ideas. Bummer

While my students have been writing their examination, I've been catching up on older posts. Tried to follow Doug's link to Epson and get this:

Bad advertising if you ask me, especially in the vein that Doug posted the link.

Thanx Doug. Looks interesting, with 7 colors. I'd heard rumours of a light yellow, but see they've gone instead with a light black.

Al - I think the other black is Epson's solution to the metamerism issues of the 2000p. I have not read yet if it really solves the problems.

It doesn't. I just lessons it. The problem occurs because of the way light reflects off of the pigment based ink. From what they say in reviews I've read, is that the problem has been reduced only. They do claim to have improved the quality of black and white printing though which was another issue with the 2000.

Pre-Ordering the 2200

I am being given the option to "pre-order" a 2200 by my vendor of choice. Question is, do I want one of the first ones or should I kick back and let them work the bugs out say till Sept. Thing is, I think I could be making sales right now if I had a pigmented ink system. Any thoughts? Gerry

I just contacted Epson America to get an update on the release date. I will let you all know if I get a response.

If you've made up your mind to buy one, go ahead. Probably the only thing they'll update after the initial release are drivers, which you can (and should) update easily.
