... I could afford / justify the expense of a good quality A3+ photo printer
13 May 2018
I had been waiting for the time when I could afford / justify the expense of a good quality A3+ photo printer, then Epson announced the launch of
the Expression XP 15000. I didn't take long to search and find the lowest cost suppliers, and decide which one I trusted most.
Just a little frustrating to not have any media to check the printer, but luckily, the delivery was just in time to beat the Saturday closing time of
my nearest supplier.
Then I spent about half an hour unpacking and setting up.
Note that there are several adhesive tapes holding various parts firmly together with some of them not easy to find, which involves removing the two paper trays to get at the internal ones (which are not visible from the outside) I was guided by the step by step instructions on the CD. but even so, missed one internal tape.The guide refused to go any further, and warned me to remove all tapes before trying to move to the next step, but the machine had already attempted to move on, and tried to move the printer carriage, which produced a strange noise, but luckily did not seem to have caused any damage.
In my view the menu should have explained how many tapes were holding things together and how to find them before pressing "Next".
Finally I made my first A3 print, Wow what a beautiful result !
I am quite used to super A4 prints from my old Epson photo printer. but this printer allows LIFE SIZE facial portraits, with a quality that I could only previously obtain by sending my files off to a Print firm.
Very expensive media but the results are worth every penny. Just make sure you don't waste any.
