Agree with Eric. I don't understand all those posts. Anyway... I really don't think it matters either if a print starts to "fail" at wash 50 or 60. If a customer comes in and says "I washed this 50 times I wanted it to last 60, give me my money back" I would tell them to pound sand. Most shirts will look so bad at 50 washings that who gives a darn if the print looks better for another 10. If image armor is lasting 50 that is awesome in general. Not only that but you have to do a whole lot of testing and wasted water from washes to figure out that 50 is the mark for sure for one... And 60 is the mark for sure for the other. It's all relative.

Its a roll to roll system. The cleaning paper wipes the bottom of the print head in a single motion going from one "clean" roll to the "dirty" roll. A fresh new piece of cleaning paper is then used for each cleaning. It is a consumable and you have to purchase the entire unit when out of cleaning paper. I dont know how long the paper roll is or what the expected lifespan is either.

The Epson F2000 Printer uses a felt roller that travels under the printhead. It is user replaceable. Here is a picture.

That capping station is pretty cool. It looks like it is divorced by each channel... correct? Which must make it easy to target issues per channel without wasting any ink on the channels that are working fine. Awesome. I saw this at SGIA and did not realize that or ask about it.

Yes..well sorta...it does two channels at a time. The fabric wiper was what I was talking about where it is a spool to spool type of system. Very innovative as there is always a clean piece of fabric to wipe the print head with during every cleaning cycle. My only question is how long does it last...I know you have to replace the entire unit and its under $200 but only time will tell how much paper is on the roll.

Not sure where the $39.95 price came from, but it's my understanding the Print Head Cleaning Kit (replacement fabric wiper, flushing pad, & cleaning cap station) are purchased together for $94.95. I heard its good for 1,000 prints whereas another Epson rep stated up to 1,500 prints.

The printers control panel LCD screen will tell you the remaining life of the wiper roller.

Yes I understand that. It will also show real time ink levels. How accurate the display is and how well the wiper works/lasts is still to be determined. Once there's more units in the field we all learn much more about how well it works.

Agreed. However Epson did have beta units out in the field at various printers for testing so I would imagine this feature should work well.

I really don't see how you consider 250 pounds without VAT for liter not bad.

Don't know if the last message was for me....but the prize I can get ink for here in Denmark, Epson cartridges is close to half the prize of Brother cartridges....and since these are the 2 printers I have looked at, I think that is great news. I guess it in the end it will give less problems with closed cartridges than I have had with my Texjet-fill-yourself-cartridges (and yes I know it is more expensive, but if less problems it might be worth it) ....Also it is so great that I can print from my MAC to the Epson printer.

A good point. You can run other d-t-g printers with a MAC using Apple's Boot Camp software. But the Epson F2000 is the only printer that has software made to work directly through a MAC.
