EPSON 4900 discontinued?
« on: August 03, 2013, 06:44:04 PM »

Wondering if anyone knows if this printer has been killed off?  ???

Have it on 'hold' with 3 different pro-printing retailers for months now and all of them are saying the distributors have ZERO stock and no word from epson when new shipments are due. They have been saying this for months and the message never varies.

Sounds like the 4900 has been taken out back and given both barrels.

Here's hoping the replacement model takes the paper handling of the 4900 mixed with the fuss-free printing of the 3880.

I just checked stock at 3 distributors in the U.S., and the 4900's are in stock at each of them - not a ton of units, but they are available.

Since the Epson 9900 was announced in May '08, let's hope that there will be a new version of the 9900, 7900 and 4900. Way past due.

No thanks... I just received my 9900 six months ago and I'm quite pleased with it, as well as my 4900. I'd just as soon not have to drool over any new features that I perceive I may need. I'd rather see some advances in the LR print module than upgrades to hardware that is working just fine. ;)
