I mostly print 13" wide, but want the capability to print larger, therefore, a 17" printer. I was weighing the current choice of $895 3800 vs. $1495 3880 when available (might be discounted some....we'll see). Then I found a fantastic current rebate through the end of the month from IT Supplies on the 4880. It might be available all over, I didn't check. Anyway, with $850 rebate now, the 4880 would cost the same as the 3800, $894. Holy cow!
Pluses of 4880: most up to date Epson ink set; delivered with more ink.....110 ml ink bottles (can hold 220 ml bottles), therefore, cheaper ink; vacuum print bed; roll paper capable
Negatives of 4880: MUCH larger and heavier
I'd appreciate your views on the comparison and the current choice in front of me.
