    The Mutoh XpertJet 1641SR that I have is almost 1 year old. – Media cockling is driving me mad.

    Epson SC-S40600 (4 colours)) or SC-S80600 Pantone certified (10 coloirs)? (5000£ price difference between them)

    Shall I take the bullet or dodge the bullet?

    I am not the best to advise here as I am very happy with our HP latex printers and due for an upgrade which will be Latex again. However, I have only heard good reports regarding the Epson printers, so I don’t think you will be disappointed.

    We’ve got a couple of SC-S80600 printers. They are the best printers we’ve owned, and I can highly recommend them. We got ours from Andy at SEDO, but I guess you’d need to use a dealer in your location. Can’t comment on the SC-S40600, but if you don’t need the colour gamut, then I would think they would be fine.

    I have a mate that owns another sign company and i am sure he has the SCS40600 and loves it.
    i think he has had it since the start of lockdown and any time i am in his place he raves on about it.

    could it not be the media that is the problem, rather than the printer? i know some materials do not work well in latex machines. perhaps the same problem with mutoh?

    We’ve had an S80600 for 3 years now and it is a fantastic bit of kit. The colour gamut on it never ceases to amaze me and it barely needs any maintenance at all. I can’t recommend it enough.

    We just bought an SCR5000 which we had installed last week, again another really nice printer. I can’t see me ever buying anything other than Epson in the future.
