Master printer for artist and professional

By Helen
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-06-07

I have owned this printer for 1 1/2 years and it sat unopened in the box for a year. 6 months ago I set it up and synced it with my XPS dell 32ram touch screen 15 laptop with Capture 1 linked to Lumix 46mp s1r camera. After a 1 day set up I was producing fine art BW prints that matched traditional silver BW prints easily and color art quality prints that matched the laptop WITHOUT calibration. The RIP software is superior in almost all ways to supplied software that comes standard with the printer. Amazing printer that goes a month without use and no clogs. There is no excessive use of inks for cleaning. I use bulk feed, front single feed for art paper, rear feed and roll feed with different papers from different top companies all without issue. The printer does not miss a beat. This is the 7th semi-professional printer I have owned and for the money and quality I could have not asked for better. After 300 prints there are no glitches. As long as Epson does not mess with updates I am sure this printer will function perfectly. I am not particularity a fan of Epson however, the quality that this printer produces cannot be argued with. B&H has been my benchmark for over 30 years.

Excellent & Versatile Printer

By Emmett B

I purchased my P5000 Standard Edition back in May 2018, replacing a very old Epson SP4000. I print primarily on roll media but also some fine art cut media. Recently I've been experimenting with 1.5mm thick aluminum plate media from Breathing Color. This printer handles it without a second thought. A significant benefit for the self-printing photographer is that this printer is much easier to operate at low monthly volumes than was its predecessor. There are times when I've gone two months or more without printing. The new head & ink technology in this printer prevents major clogs even after such long periods of inactivity. I've never had a clog issue that this printer couldn't quickly clear on its own. If I had gone two months without printing on the old SP4000, I would for sure be facing some manual head swabbing and possibly some line flushing to get it unclogged. This printer is large and heavy, though. You will definitely need a sturdy table that's well braced so that it doesn't move back/forth under the print head momentum. I wish Epson had a dedicated stand for it, but they don't.

Beautiful prints with good color fidelity out of the box

The printer replaces an Epson 4000 that I used for 10+ years. That was a great but troublesome printer. The P-5000 takes care of several paper handling issues, and has better color fidelity without needing expensive, external printer drivers. One issue was during set up I encountered a subtle difficulty in printing sheets via Photoshop. I needed to call up Epson technical service and went all the way to their advanced technical support group. It took 3 calls. All were immediately answered and the folks at the other end of the line were helpful, including calling me back. While I had to sort the issue out myself, but the calls were helpful in getting me there. Overall, a very good experience.

Unexpected find

Our Epson 4800 reached its last leg. Wanted to stick to a wide format Epson printer and this P5000 was an unexpected find. This is perfect for what we need it for, film output for screenprinting.  Printer setup was easy. Solid printer, happy with the choice. I knew B&H would come through with having what I needed.

Prints keep getting better!

This is my third Epson large format printer, replacing my 7890. There is no question that the color gamut has been expanded and greens are much better with this new inkset. But not only are the colors better, the black & white prints from this printer are stunning. Deep rich blacks and fine details across the spectrum. Mechanically, I'd prefer something simpler but I own it for the prints. It is a very large printer but is smaller than the one it replaced. Fortunately, I had the stand from the 7890 to use with this printer. I think most tables would be challenged by its size and weight. I set up my printer as a Standard Edition by substituting a LLK cartridge for the supplied Purple cartridge. The initial printer setup requires a choice so as long as you have an LLK cartridge on hand, setup as a Standard Edition is no problem.

Epson P5000 -Commercial or Standard?

If you are looking to replace an Epson 4900 and can't find the P5000 Standard, buy the Commercial P5000 and just get the LLK ink cartridge to replace the Violet one before you charge the ink. B&H made it easy!

Not recommended! The ink will spill through the holes & cause a total ink mess in the printer. Also the canvas must be coated for inkjet printers so it doesn't bleed.

Asked by: M H
Epson does not specify a pound weight limitation but the actual caliper thickness the P5000 can handle is up to 59mil or 1.5mm thick. Just as an example as to how thick that is, inkjet printable aluminum is around 45mil thick. Water color papers are all much thinner and the P5000 can easily handle them.
