A month ago, I was fortunate enough to chat with Epson and talk about the new EPSON surecolor P600 but of course not able to release till now 10/28/14.

Let’s just say it was a very exciting chat. Not sure if you guys are aware but even in this age of digital, I greatly value the beauty of the print and that is only possible with of course a calibrated monitor and the right printer.

As an owner of the EPSON R1900 for years and recently the EPSON R2000, I am very familiar with the high quality prints Epson provides it’s customers.  The Epson SureColor P600 surely will not disappoint based on the specs. (I hope to receive a review unit soon for a first hand account)

EPSON R2000 owners don’t worry about having to replace your baby, the EPSON SureColor P600 is more of an addition to your arsenal opposed to a replacement product. If you owned the EPSON Stylus Pro 3880 (known for producing amazing black and white prints) on the other hand, the EPSON SureColor P600 might possibly be a welcomed replacement. Expected product release Q1 2015.

So now you ask why, well check the specs yourself or if you are fortunate enough to be at Photo Plus Expo in New York stop by Booth #701 and check it out for yourself.
