FLAAR specializes in evaluating wide format inkjet printers for in-house, in-plant, corporate work group, corporate departmental. Print E-mail

It is now year 2006, and I about fell off my chair when I saw companies in the UK still offering the Epson Stylus Color 1520. That printer was a turkey in 1999. Hopefully it is not the same printer. It and the Epson 3000 were among the most problematic office printers ever offered. Current Epson 4800 and Epson R-series printers are light years better.

Unless you obtain independent evaluations, if all you read are the pseudo-reviews on the Internet, you may end up with the wrong printer for your business proposals, business presentations, newsletters, brochures, and technical drawings.

Your in-house printing or reprographic facility can profit from adding or expanding wide format inkjet printer services
