Epson HDR Ink Technology
Epson's latest High Dynamic Range (HDR) pigment inks offer exceptional quality for both archival printing and short-run proofing applications. Color prints on Epson Professional Media are rated stable for up to 200 years (black & white prints last even longer). The short-term stability of the inks is equally impressive.

Photo Quality Black & White Printing
By combining Black, Light Black, and Light Light Black Inks, the Epson Pro 7900 produces film-quality black & white photos from color or grayscale files. From the darkest black point to the brightest white point, prints offer smoother tonal gradations without sacrificing contrast. With the Epson Pro 7900, wide-format, fine art black & white imaging rivals the very best fiber prints!
Roll Media Made Easy
Using unique Epson ePlaten technology, the Pro 7900 printer easily accepts 2 or 3" core rolls. By eliminating the need for a paper spindle, switching roll media is simpler and easier than ever. This greatly reduces instances of damage to roll media--saving paper and maximizing profit.

    We received our Epson Stylus Pro 7900 on Dec. 10. After a smooth (~3 hour) assembly process (the manual wisely recommends 4 people to lift it onto its stand!), we were happily printing photos and fine art on the 11th.
    I say 'happily' because the 7900 is by far the best printing experience we've had in 20 years. Some of the reasons why:
    --Although the nominal 1440x2880 resolution hasn't changed, the very small droplet size, barely visible at 10x magnification, coupled with a clever dithering pattern yield much improved perceived optical resolution. Grayscale gradients are utterly smooth and rich.
    --Larger color gamut, thanks to orange and green, yields big perceptual improvements in landscapes, skin tones, etc.
    --"Auto" black ink switching works quickly, well, and with little ink.
    --Improved paper handling, both roll and sheet. The single sheet handling works very easily and accurately, even accepting deckle-edged paper, including 8.5x11. You simply insert a sheet visually aligned to a reference line until it meets resistance, press the down arrow which grabs the paper, confirm on the panel what type of media it is, and the printer then moves it into position. So far we've printed on Epson Premium Luster 260 and various fine art matte media including Arches Infinity, Moab Somerset, Bergger, Epson WC, and several Arches uncoated WC papers. Results in each case are the best we've ever seen from any printer.
    --The redesigned printer driver has to be relearned, but it installs ICC profiles for all Epson media (which appear in Photoshop with their full names spelled out!) and has a number of neat features, including "single cut" to economically cut adjacent prints where the two images adjoin (perect 1 pixel accuracy so far).
    --The larger, multi-line, color display makes setting up parameters much more intuitive. Includes a convenient report of .ml ink and cm2 paper used on last job, plus ink cart capacity in 1% increments. It's too early in our use to verify, but the panel reports an average of 0.4ml of total ink consumption for an 8x10. That's a relief, because our little box of 11 350's set us back $1750 (close to half the cost of the printer!) so we'd like it to last.
    --Almost twice as fast as our previous generation Epson printers--the heavy printhead still rocks the stand slightly, though.
    --The auto-head cleaning feature so far works quickly and well, with virtually no ink use and without paper.
    --The manual suggests that the included 110ml carts are just enough for the initial charge. We were pleased to discover that 10 had 60% left over, and 1 (light black) had 35%. Maintenance tank had 70% capacity remaining. A short roll of 24" double-weight matte is included.
    SUMMARY: we purchased the 7900 for improved quality on fine art prints and we are very pleasantly surprised with the results. The convenience features are great bonuses. (We purchased our paper from B&H but not the 7900 unit itself.)

    This is my fourth Epson printer. I would rate the quality of prints in both color and black and white at very close to five stars. Yes, there are minor hassles with black ink switching, loading small sheets (8.5 x 11 with any kind of curl catches and bends without a little trick), and a few other quirks.

    Ink wasting has been part of the package deal and I've accepted that. However, the x900 printers have a serious and fatal flaw. Search the various forums-- lots and lots of anecdotes of people's printers dying. Once a print head is clogged and can't be cleared even with power cleaning or maintenance mode cleaning, your printer is now an expensive paperweight. Call Epson once you are past the one year warranty and they will send Decision One to replace the print head at a cost of $2500 to $3000- more than the cost of the printer.

    So, this is a printer with excellent output. But anecdotally it seems to have a higher failure rate including many people in less than two years. I'm looking at the Canons now even though I have always been a loyal Epson printer. Once you get a clog that can't be cleaned, you're done. It's worth doing a google search about x900 print head clogs before you buy . . .

        Comments about Epson Stylus Pro 7900 Printer:

        I would be considered a light user and this printer is designed for heavy duty use. I purchased this in Oct. 2012 and have had problems with clogged nozzles. I did nozzle cleanings after nozzle cleanings which worked and I was able to print. Finally the cleanings were unsuccessful and the printer frooze, wouldn't allow me to print. Fortunately I have the extended in home warranty, 3 yrs., and an Epson tech came, cleaned everything. This worked until two days after he left. I called and Epson sent another tech who checked, cleaned and actually replaced the printhead. The head is a $1600.00 + part.
        Even with this done I have to run, at minimum, a nozzle check every day or the cyan & orange nozzles clog and I must run a cleaning - for that nozzle pair. The one tech explained to me that this line of printers are workhorses, they need to be used - a lot.
        I have had many Epson products, several smaller format photo printers, 2 pro photo scanners and a couple all-in-ones. Never a problem with any. Funny, I make the move into the large format PRO printer line and I am having, what I consider an on going MINOR problem (nozzle clogging/cleaning).
        I recommend this printer to the heavy duty users or to those who can afford this printer and what goes with it.
        As I am now going to put this printer to more use, i thought by limiting the use I was preserving the printer (I was wrong), I may have more info. in a few months, after heavy use.

        The colors are amazing, i give it to epson, what I DON"T like is how much ink is spent, even after altering the settings the auto cleaning eats up 26ml of ink !!!!! WHAT the Heck !!!
        when changing media type the colors get all screwed up, i'm a doit yourself photographer and if the printer was fail safe i'd give it a 5 stars, so far i'm pleased with the prints but a few minutes ago i printed a 17x22 but the printer didn't cut it automatically,, this is rather random and i had to manually align to cut ut, there is a scisors symbols inside and one would think, ok, i align it with that and when i pressed the button guess what, the printer cut exactly 2 1/2 inches of the print !!! in the picture you'll see that is wrinkled up since i got so upset...
        thanks epson. !!

            Comments about Epson Stylus Pro 7900 Printer:

            I have enjoyed really great prints from my Stylus Pro 3880 for several years, but wanted to be able to print larger than 38in x 17in.

            Unfortunately, I just don't have the space in my "den" for a 9900, so settled for a 7900. I do still yearn for a 9900 - especially after seeing such magnificent prints coming out of the 7900...

            While it's not particularly easy to see the difference between prints made with the 3880 and 7900 on the same media, the latter definitely wins.

            If you want a 24in or 44in high-end printer that is capable of making superb images, you simply cannot go wrong with one of these.

                Comments about Epson Stylus Pro 7900 Printer:

                It's been three years since I got this printer and figured it was time I share my opinion. Let me say that this is the first time ever I really felt the need to share my favorable opinion of a product. I am a small scale school photographer, wedding photographer, and portrait photographer that has had some bad luck with the lab. Being a "do-it-your-selfer", My partner and I decided to invest in this printer and print our own work.
                Our plan was to learn the printer over the winter, and use it the following season. We got an order back from the lab that was totally unacceptable, so the next day we set the printer up and began redoing the order. When the very first print was finished, we just looked at each other in amazement. I never would have guessed that a print of that quality could have come from an ink jet printer, and definitely not from a printer in that price range. The blacks are beautiful, the colors are extremely accurate and vibrant. The print quality in my opinion was equal to that of a professional lab, and far surpassed the quality I was receiving from my lab.
                As of now, I have printed around 3500 linear ft. of premium luster 260 paper in 24" wide rolls. The quality today is just as good as it was on day one. The only maintenance I have done to the printer, aside from replacing ink cartridges, is replacing the cutter blade one time, and the maintenance tank twice.
                To this day, I still inspect every print I do, and I still look at them in amazement. The smallest details are sharp and accurate, every print. If you are skeptical, don't be. You will not be disappointed. In savings over the lab cost, this printer paid for itself in just over one year.

                  Constant print head cleaning of the Cyan and Light Black heads are expensive and diminish the quality of this product. Missing one day of printing always require a print head cleaning. I received the printer on the 3rd of July and five print head cleaning later, I am frustrated with the waste of ink.

                  I have no complaints about my Epson R3000 with print head clogging. even after a week of sitting.

                      State of the art printer... top of the line!
                      I use this printer for photographic prints. The 7900 Sytlus Pro produces extremely accurate color and B&W prints with a very smooth tonal range. It uses 11 different Ultra Chrome HDR inks, so the transition of colors is very fine with good shadow and hilghlight detail. The printer is very bulky and big, but should be expected for a large format professional imaging solution.

                        I'm a fine art photographer. Other professional photographers recommended I purchase my own printer, rather than paying someone else to do my printing. Have had the printer a short while and am pleased with the quality of the prints thus far. Epson technical support assisted me in setting up. Would recommend this printer to any serious professional photographer.

                        This is my fourth Epson printer. I would rate the quality of prints in both color and black and white at very close to five stars. Yes, there are minor hassles with black ink switching, loading small sheets (8.5 x 11 with any kind of curl catches and bends without a little trick), and a few other quirks.

                        Ink wasting has been part of the package deal and I've accepted that. However, the x900 printers have a serious and fatal flaw. Search the various forums-- lots and lots of anecdotes of people's printers dying. Once a print head is clogged and can't be cleared even with power cleaning or maintenance mode cleaning, your printer is now an expensive paperweight. Call Epson once you are past the one year warranty and they will send Decision One to replace the print head at a cost of $2500 to $3000- more than the cost of the printer.

                        So, this is a printer with excellent output. But anecdotally it seems to have a higher failure rate including many people in less than two years. I'm looking at the Canons now even though I have always been a loyal Epson printer. Once you get a clog that can't be cleaned, you're done. It's worth doing a google search about x900 print head clogs before you buy . . .

                          We use our Epson printers for commercial press proofing as well as fine art/giclee prints. Very impressed with the quality and the speed. Cutting is faster and more intelligent and overall print speed is substantially better than our old 7800. The shift between Matte Black and Photo Black is relatively painless, though it does take a few moments. The printer automatically performs nozzle checks and notifies you when the heads need cleaned. It is larger than the older models, so something to be aware of if that could be an issue.The other thing is that it seems to be more efficient with ink. The 110ml cartridges that came with the machine lasted us for more than 300' of posters and prints.

                          Print quality is ex. I am a serious amateur photographer for 40 years and new to digital. I bought this printer when Epson sent me a discount coupon. I've had it for 1.9 years and haven't used it much because of a new home and digital learning curve. I've printed maybe 15 prints and performed many head cleanings. It was fine until I went on a 2 wk vacation. When I got back I couldn't get the Cyan nozzle to print w/o drop outs. No matter how many cleanings or power cleanings. Cost to fix, about $2500 ($1800 for new head @ $175 hr labor). Also, you can't get the parts yourself or the program required to calibrate. Don't buy it unless you are rich. Having a boat or a drug habit would be more economical than owning this printer.

                              Comments about Epson Stylus Pro 7900 Printer:

                              I wanted a printer to that gave me very high quality prints and control of my printing process. The Epson 7900 is the solution. I am not a volume printer. My reputation is quality. I can now produce competition prints, my clients prints and my own personal prints in-house with the control I want. I previously used Millers Lab for prints larger than my Epson R2880 could produce. The next step is to find the best paper and canvas for my output requirements. I am starting with Breathing Color Lyve canvas, Breathing Color Metallic paper and Epson Cold Press for textured fine art paper.

                              Unpacking and carrying the printer up to my second floor studio was done with 2 people and yes it is heavy, about 220 lbs unpacked. Physical setup was really easy. I connected the printer to my hub via ethernet. Getting used to the menus was a little more complicated. Reading the manual has answered all the questions.

                              I did have to clean one of the heads. I really like the ability to clean a head without cleaning every color ink. You can select the color(s) that need cleaning. They are pairs, so you end up cleaning 2 colors.

                              After my experience with the R2880, it is also nice to be able to switch between photo black and matte black on the fly without changing cartridges.

                              Having the printer print the name of the media and the remaining length of the canvas/paper on the roll is also very nice. It helps me figure out when to re-order paper.

                              The printer comes with a small filler ink set. I bought the 150 ml ink cartridges for each color ink to use when the fillers run out. I'll see how they are consumed and maybe get a couple of 350 ml if I find a few colors are consumed in larger quantities.

                              I wish the printer came with a cloth cover to keep dust out. I'll probably have one made.

                              Again, great printer!

                                Film-photographer-turned digital in last several years. Continue to note the whole new learning curve to print digital. Clearly this will be making me some great prints in larger size for me and perhaps, but not yet, better than the smaller prints (that are gorgeous) from the R2400. Someone needs to write a comprehensive, but understandable, guide to printing photos on these printers. The tech support so far has been excellent.

                                  The Epson 7900 was easy to install and use. The printer was purchased to obtain the best color reproduction possible with one of the widest color gamuts available in a professional large format inkjet printer.
                                  The 7900 lives up to expectations. In combination with the use of the ICC color profiles provided by Epson the image reproduction matches the on-screen image unbelievably well. The knock-out feature is the colors being laid down onto the print paper. They are bright, vivid and provide a wow moment when the first prints come from the machine.

                                  Comments about Epson Stylus Pro 7900 Printer:

                                  I moved up the scale from the 3800. Although the prints are amazing I would only recommend this printer if you are looking to increase your final output size. Side by side comparison with the 3800 to the 7900... the 7900 wins, but they are still both A+ prints. All in all, when Epson offered a rebate they got my attention and I could not be happier.

                                  I use this printer for personal use, usually for photo exhibits when I need large prints. Images are crisp and the color accurate. Unfortunately, the printer is huge and takes up lots of space. Not recommended for a NYC apartment although it provides professional quality images.
