I believe there are 2 or 3 dealers for the Epson F2000 in the UK. Your best bet is to contact them for some customer referrals to speak to. They can also go over pricing and other details with you.

There was a video posted of a textile screen printing shop in the UK that had added the Epson F2000 Printer. They seem very happy with it. You can give them a call directly and get their feedback on the F2000.

Get one referral from each of the five. Call those customers and ask the same list of questions of each.

The list price in the UK is £17,754 with VAT (£14,795 without VAT). You would have to purchase it from one of the UK dealers.

Unfortunately that is always the way with equipment from outide the EU. Makes a lot of the American products unaffordable over here.
Epson prices are usually fairly consistent around the world. I guess this particular model is not made in the EU yet, so your are being hit with import charges.

I can't seeing that lasting forever. Europe is too big a market for Epson to allow the product to be overpriced for long.

Is it worth waiting until the price drops?

There's an event called DTG Select at Epson HQ on 3rd July. I'd guess that'll be the best place to talk to someone about the printer

So the dealers in the UK are also giving a discount.

I can try and help with some product info, but for street prices you're going to have to deal with one or more of the four dealers because we don't sell direct.
