Epson 4800 or 7800?
« on: February 20, 2006, 09:55:13 PM »

I've looked at the specs for the Epson 4800 and 7800, but I can't find information on whether or not the 7800 has a paper tray for cut paper. If if doesn't have a tray, how do you feed cut paper--one at a time? Although I would like to have the ability to print 24 inches wide, if it means that it's a hassle to print smaller prints (8 x 10 or so), I might forego the 7800 and get a 4800 for the conveneince of being able to print smaller prints easily.

Thanks,

I don't know the 7800 so I can't answer that part, but be careful about the "or so" for small prints from the 4800. The smallest sheet you can feed the 4800 is A4 in Europe or Letter Size (8.5*11 inch) in North America. There is no "or so" going downward!

The 7800 doesn't have a paper tray but it's fairly easy to feed cut sheets, both small and large (easier than on a 4800) ... but you do have to feed them one at a time.

if up front expenditure isn't a problem I would definately choose the 7800.
Yes you'll have to hand feed sheets......but the ability to go big....is great...good luck!
