I've just been given a second-hand Epson Pro 5500, stored in its original box, along with a spare black ink cartridge. How could I resist? It was free.
I started scouting around online and found the driver, which Epson provides. The last Mac driver version supported 10.4 and I'm running 10.6 - I hope that isn't a problem and maybe there's a third-party driver for this printer that would work better?
I do have an Epson 2200 printer that I've kept, but how would it compare to the Pro 5500?
How does the Pro 5500 stand up by today's standards? Any good?
Would it make a better B/W only printer? Are there any requirements to converting this printer to B/W only? Or special printer settings?
If this printer even worth cabling up, cleaning up, and experimenting with?
I appreciate any comments or suggestions you might have.
