Our Favorite Online User Reviews for the 4800
It's bigger than I had imagined, and I needed to brace it on the side by putting a pad between the printer and the wall to keep the massive printing head mechanism from swinging it back and forth on top of the stand, but I simply followed the directions plugging stuff in, installing the drivers and the optional network card, and BAM, it worked. It worked really well. The quality of prints, on good paper, surpasses anything I've gotten back from a photo lab.
I've got one of these in a studio I run part time. I've gone through many many 100 foot rolls of 10" and 16" over the years and have hardly had a hiccup out of the printer. The only time I had a problem was user error, I had the wrong paper type selected and got some nasty horizontal banding in the prints.
The ink tanks might be spendy but they last a long time. This is a very efficient printer.
WHEN it prints it prints beautifully. But rarely does it print at all because one or more of the ink jets is clogged. I've had this printer about 6 years and commonly when anyone asks me to print something out my response is usually, "it's not working now."
