Need some advice on Epson 7600/9600
Not sure if this is the correct place to ask for large format printers, but I need some advice from current Epson 7600/9600 users on the running cost of the printer.
1) Just to ask, how much is the cost of the carts.? From what I understand from CP, it's $70/colour for the 110ml version.
2) If let's say that I don't need to print out photo-quality prints (ie, just normal inkjet quality on normal paper), how much will it cost, as in per A3 size as a gauge.
From what I understand from CP, it costs around $3 in ink costs to print a A3 in real photo quality (ie, the one of the lady shot with Valeo backs, displayed at the main store).
Will printing in "normal" inkjet resolutions be much cheaper? Anyone has any idea on this?
3) If let's say that I want to print only "normal" CMYK prints (no need for any fancy 'Light Black' inks or 5 colour inks), is it possible to set this from the driver options, or can I totally not put in the additional carts?
4) Current Epson 7600/9600 owners, any grouses about this printer?
