it'd be really handy to know what your plans are for such a printer before anyone can make a reasonable recommendation. Do you want 17", 24", 44" ?? will you be doing a lot of printing? prefer roll to sheet? canvas?

The two I'd suggest you look at first are the 3880 and the 4900.

The 4900 is bigger, heavier, and has a larger gamut (uses more inks). It also uses larger cartridges, so fewer changes. It supports cut sheets and roll feed.

The 3880 is cheaper, effective, and there are profiles for lots of different papers. Cut sheets only.

the downside of the 4900 is that many people report excessive clogging, if not used constantly. hence my question.

The 3880 is very good. And I agree with AlephOne's post

The 3880 is a great printer and can print 8x10's all day as well as sheets, 11x14, 16x20's. The consumeables aren't cheap at $500 for all inks.

I'm not familiar with the 4900, but the 3880 has a splatter drain system which collects edge splattered ink in a tank which can be replaced. Lessor Epson printers use sponges for the same purpose which have to be replaced by Epson service.

yeah those (or R3000, costs a lot less, but the ink does cost more and it prints smaller)

R3000 is amazingly resistant to ink clogs compred to my miserable old R800, which would clog hideously badly all the time, a nightmare of cleaning kits, or using up entire ink sets on cleaning cycles, buying an R3000 pays for itself compared to an ink hogger clogger
