IT Supplies, an excellent dealer I have used many times, has this caution in the description of the 4900: "If necessary, a lift gate fee of $50 may apply to your order." The 4900 also has things I don't need, like roll paper support, and lacks things I do need, like the ability to print on 4x6 paper. $1,500 after $300 rebate.
The 3880. Looks like Epson has been trying to help dealers unload their stock, as there have been rebates, one after the other, of $250 or $300, since April 1. IT Supplies' price of $1,119 with no sales tax out of state and no shipping charge, less the rebate is $869. With $400 worth of ink included, this looks like a pretty good deal even if it is discontinued. It's still a fragile appliance, in my experience with the 3800, plus the blacks are less than extraordinary, but the ability to print 16x24 on 17x25 paper, is nice.
I'll watch Photokina and see what is announced. The Rebate is good until 9/30.
