We are looking at purchasing a second hand Epson 9900 from a professional graphics company here in Wellington, New Zealand. Here is the current Printer Status results that came off the machine several days ago:
Version: HW01699, 1.11, A000 Total Prints: 5822 PG
Maintenance Tank Left: 16%
Maintenance Tank Right: 45%
The print alignment test along with some sample prints etc. all looks perfect.
For an Epson Stylus Pro 9900 printer, is the Total Prints above a huge amount for this machine or reasonable? The company that had it beforehand used it as a proofing machine.
We want to use this machine for Fine Art Giclee printing because of the HDR pigment inks it uses.
Any information from members here that know these machines well would be most appreciated. By the way, the second hand price for this machine is going at $7,000 +GST (NZD). We have seen similar machines going for $1,800 approx in the USA.
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide...cheers
