Epson Stylus Pro 9900 & 7900
The Bottom Line
The new Stylus Pro 7900 and 9900 printers from Epson bring some nice enhancements to the digital photographer interested in high quality output. With a significantly larger gamut and improved print speed, the new printers are a great option for anyone printing vivid colors or portraits. You'll pay a premium of about $1,000 for the new technology, mainly due to the advanced print head, but if you want the absolute best, it's worth the extra. If you frequently change between Photo and Matte black inks, the savings in time and ink will pay for the difference in price in short order. For those primarily interested in black and white, or with a more modest budget, the 7880 and 9880 are still excellent options.

Our Favorite Online User Reviews for the 9900 & 7900
Problems and imperfections aside, this is a great large format aqueous, archival ink printer. It's faster than previous models, quieter, and cheaper to operate if you buy big ink cartridges.
The print sharpness on this printer is the best I have ever seen. The built in "shelf" is a life saver when switching out heavy rolls of paper, and the spool design is a real break through for ease of use.
The 9900 seems to be more efficient on ink. However I am taking my repair man's advice and running a nozzel check (runs a tiny amount of ink through each jet) EVERY DAY, including weekends/holidays and everyday in between.
