Been reading this forum for about a year after seeing it come up on lots of google searches when trying to fix problems with my current printers, so thought i'd ask some questions about the 4900's which i'm thinking of upgrading to.
What i want to know is if the 4900 can print accurately from the auto sheet tray in both bordered and borderless printing without the print being skewed?
I am looking to purchase two 4900s and load each tray with my two most popular paper sizes, and then run the prints in either bordered or borderless settings.
The reason i ask (and the problem i am looking to avoid) is that i have owned five epson 3880's and every single one of them has suffered from the following problem: when gathering paper from the vertical auto-feed the paper occasionally skews slightly anti-clockwise resulting in either a skewed border on a bordered print, or a sliver of unprinted paper on the trailing right edge where the angle of the paper has out-run the borderless expansion in that trailing corner.
Please note i am not looking for a solution to this problem on the 3880. I just want to know if the 4900 can print from the auto-feed trays without twisting the paper resulting in a skewed print.
For instance - if you owned a 4900 and printed a perfectly black square on 8x10 paper, would the borderless print result in a perfectly black 8x10 print on all four sides, and would the bordered print result in a black print with even borders on all four sides.
I know the 4900's use much better vacuum technology than the 3880's pizza cutters, so hoping this problem might be solved.
Thanks for any help
