This is a real thing...in case you thought it was tough fitting a printer in your office. (I've been feeling guilty about not having enough room for a P800.)
It's the new Epson SureColor S60600. Epson's new large printers are on sale right now, in case you need an extra one of these for your bedroom. The price of this model is reduced by roughly the cost of two P800's. (Also on sale, for $250 off.) Final price after rebate $18,995. (The S60600, not the P800.)
I'm just happy I'm not tasked with keeping one of these on song. When I remember how hard it was to keep my B9180 going....

Brian Woolf: "I recently purchased an Epson P6000 24"-wide printer from B&H, they had a special that I could not believe—free shipping. Since shipping that monster was about $500, couldn't pass it up. It is less wide than your illustration photo but it is still large for only a 24" wide printer. It's a beautiful machine and, so far, looks after itself, doing nozzle checks randomly. I print every other day to keep it going."
Geoff Wittig: "For what it's worth, large format inkjets are generally a lot more trouble-free than their smaller desktop cousins. I presume that's a consequence of the quality engineering and better parts you get for the higher price of entry. I've been using a Canon iPF6300 for years, and it's been a paragon of reliability. If I leave it idle for a few weeks it has to run a cleaning cycle, but it then resumes cranking out prints without complaint. I find myself trying to resist the siren's song of deeper blacks from the latest generation of printers; I simply can't justify it when this printer just keeps going and going."
Ned Bunnell: "We're renovating our new house, and I'm adding a fourth bedroom/office to accommodate the P800. Can't imagine the space I'd need for this beast."
Keith B.: "It would be wise to find space for a P800, since the gouge-factor of the ink costs for any of the smaller units will eat away at your soul. Ask me how I know."
