Test: Epson Stylus Pro 4000


Turn Pro If you're a dedicated photo-grapher, chances are you're shooting with a film or digital SLR instead of a point-and-shoot camera. But when it comes to printing those great images you've captured or scanned, are you still using a cheap desktop...

Epson Stylus Pro 4000


Fast, reliable 17″-wide desktop printer

This printer is totally reliable–not one problem. If your production doesn't demand prints larger than 17×22″, the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 is an incredible bargain.

Epson Stylus Pro 4000

Lexmark printers are nothing but a headache

Good Choice, but Big and Loud


While it has more features than my previous printer(s), it is also bigger and louder. It takes a while to warm up, so plan ahead. It copies, scans and prints with aplomb. I only wish I did not have to close the copy delivery tray to access the paper...

Nearly perfect all-in-one


Prints, copies, and scans beautifully. I've not yet tried the fax, nor do I use the Pro4000 wirelessly. It is easy on the ink, however, and the extended capacity cartridges make it even cheaper to use.

great value, easy on the ink, performs beautifully

a bit noisy, can take a while to initialize

Product Specifications

The EPSON Stylus PRO 4000 is a revolutionary step forward in the competitive world of wide format color printing. Now you can combine truly professional consistent color quality with speed, flexibility and ease of use - all in a robust desktop design and at an impressively low cost of ownership. The EPSON Stylus PRO 4000 uses 8-color EPSON UltraChrome ink technology to create natural skin tones, add depth and detail to images, and improve grayscales in both color, and monochrome images. Stunning color, and black and white results are easier to achieve even on media up to 1.5mm thick. In addition, prints are ready to use immediately after printing, and are resistant to fading, keeping them as good as new for up to and beyond 75 years. The EPSON Stylus PRO 4000 makes industry standard proofing available at a fraction of the traditional cost. EPSON UltraChrome ink technology offers a wide color gamut, ensuring accurate color proofing, with remarkable consistency and repeatability achieved across the page and between multiple copies. This printer is a superb solution for design agencies, printers, repro houses and publishers requiring an accurate proofing system capable of industry standard proofs. The EPSON Stylus PRO 4000 is ideal for in-house printing such as point-of-sale and indoor or outdoor display materials. The vibrancy of color obtainable with the EPSON UltraChrome ink is a great way to reinforce your promotional messages, with image colors that stand out extremely well on many different types of media up to 17" in width. Simple in-house production eliminates the need for a skilled operator at remote sites, which means you can keep control of every job, respond to last minute changes and launch new promotions quickly. The EPSON Stylus PRO 4000 achieves high quality output at impressive speeds, which is ideal for industrial designers and architects who need to print accurate, impressive CAD materials and plans for clients, colleagues or contractors. EPSON's UltraChrome ink technology enables excellent results to be achieved, with superb color and precise line work for striking maps, plans and designs.
