I am most interested in making black and white prints. Will this print real grays w/o purple or green tints?
Asked by: Frank
Yes the Epson ET-8550 can print black and white without a color cast. However, it only has 1 gray ink. In my opinion the Epson P700 produces better quality black and white prints because it has 2 grays plus it uses archival pigment inks. Please take a look at the following link: https://bhpho.to/3DYAsgL
