Epson SureColor P600 A3+ Inkjet Printer

[IS sku: HEP_SCP600]
$1,250 (N.B. price might change once available for purchase).

A great A3+ inkjet photographic printer with significantly improved black densities.

Sorry, this product is not available.
The Epson P600 is no longer available. We recommend the new generation of this model, the Epson P706 which is now available for pre-order.
We recommend you look at Epson SureColor P706 A3+ Inkjet Printer as an alternative.

Description

The baby brother to our favourite home/studio printer (the P800) - this is a very similar machine, just a smaller version. It's not quite as cheap to run, and limited to a 13"/A3+ carriage width, so it's ideal for those with lower volume and size needs.

(If you're tossing up between the two, we'd fairly strongly advise short term pain for long term gain here - the extra ink you get with a P800 means you're really getting the bigger printer for much the same price as the P600, and you'll enjoy the long term lower running costs for the printer's lifetime of course).

Here's Epson's blurb:

The Epson SureColor SC-P600™, which delivers professional features including high-capacity cartridges, networking and wireless connectivity, plus advanced media handling. Epson UltraChrome® HD pigment ink, combined with Epson's innovative MicroPiezo® print head, enables the SC-P600 to produce gallery-quality black-and-white output, plus vivid colour prints with breathtaking blues and violets. The Epson SureColor SC-P600 is setting new benchmarks in A3+ professional photographic printing, delivering the highest D-max to date and unsurpassed black and white photography along with outstanding colour exhibition quality prints. Ideal for amateur and semi-professional photographers the SureColor SC-P600 is also perfect for any business that has a regular requirement for high-quality colour presentations.

KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • A3+ size printing – Exhibition Quality prints up to A3+ size.
  • Unprecedented black density – Epson UltraChrome HD Ink, an industry-leading ink technology, delivers the highest black density1never before seen from a pigment ink for the richest blacks and outstanding colour prints. The SC-P600 offers the highest D-max seen to date on a printer of this calibre.
  • Auto-switching black inks – A Intelligent linking technology enables the printer to automatically switch between Photo and Matte Black inks to optimize your output, based on the media type you choose. Photo Black Ink produces rich, deep blacks on traditional photographic papers; while Matte Black Ink produces exceptional results on matte surface media.
  • Individual High Capacity Ink Cartridges – The Epson SureColor SC-P600 includes new high capacity ink cartridges which provide you to print more and change ink cartridges less often.
  • Advanced, simple media handling – An Improved design allows precise front feeding of fine art paper - a definite advantage that not only simplifies a delicate task, but reduces installation space.
  • CD/ DVD Printing – In keeping with Epson's precision CD/DVD surface printing tradition, the Epson SureColor SC-P600 supports high quality printing directly on to the surface of compatible inkjet printable 8cm and 12cm CD-Rs and DVDs.
  • Wired networking – Built-in Ethernet makes sharing the printer on your network quick and easy.
  • Print and share from anywhere in the world3 – Print wirelessly from your iPad, iPhone, tablet or smartphone using Epson iPrint4. Easily print documents, photos, emails and web pages while in your office, on the road or across the globe.

Specifications

Please note: Specifications are provided as a guide only.

We try very hard to keep these up to date and correct, but if a particular specification is really critical to you, then please double check the specification directly with the manufacturer. Some features may of course have caveats not fully described here.

To get more information about a particular specification, use the arrow to get a 'Specxplanation'.

  • Inkset Name
    Ultrachrome HD
  • Inkset Type, # Inks
    Pigment, 9 inks
  • Carriage Width
    A3+ (13", 330mm)

    The Carriage Width is the maximum width of paper (on the short side) that can be used in the printer.

    Colloquially printers are more commonly referred to as 'A4, 'A3+' or 'A2' printers in Australia but of course not every country in the world uses the A paper system.

    Typically, A4 printers have a 9" carriage, A3+ printers are 13" carriage, and A2 printers a 17" carriage.

  • High Quality Black and White?

    Does the printer have a dedicated, high quality black and white mode for photographic printing?

    Almost all ink printers have a 'black only' type mode, but that is quite different to what we're talking about here.

    In this mode, called by Epson 'Advanced Black and White' mode or simply ABW, the printer uses multiple grey inks (AKA light black, light light black inks) to produce smooth black and white tones with little to no colour interference.

  • Maximum Print Resolution
    5760 x 1440

    This is the maximum dot resolution of the print head. The higher the number, the smaller the dots of ink the printer can place.

    Note that this has nothing to do with image resolution of course. The printer uses several ink dots to form the colour of one pixel. However the dots are so fine and closely mixed together you can only really see this screening pattern with a magnifying glass.

  • Dimensions
    61cm (W) x 36cm (D) x 22cm (H) (closed)
    61cm (W) x 81cm (D) x 42cm (H) (open)
  • Connections
    USB
    Ethernet

    What physical connections are possible? Wireless support is listed separately below.

    Options include USB, Firewire, Thunderbolt, and Ethernet.

  • Included Cables
    None
  • Wireless Support
    802.11b
    802.11g
    802.11n

    Does the printer support wireless, and if so what speeds and standards.

    Most modern routers will offer at least G, which is fast enough to run a printer. N and AC are quicker and good to have but they won't make your printer faster unfortunately!

  • Direct Device Printing Support
    Google Cloud Print
    Apple AirPrint
    Epson Connect

    If you use Apple devices like the iPad or iPhone, you'll want Apple Print support, allowing you to print directly from your device to the printer.

    For Android devices, Google Cloud Print is the equivalent system.

    Epson Connect offers a further option but generally you'll use one of the two main options above with modern devices.

  • Disc Printing Support?

    Does the printer support printing to printable CDs and DVDs?

  • Sheet Sizes Supported
    5 by 3.5"
    6 by 4"
    7 by 5"
    8 by 7"
    10 by 8"
    14 by 11"
    17 by 11"
    A5
    A4
    A3
    A3+

    The sheet sizes supported by the printer out of the box. You can also generally define your own custom sheet sizes in the driver if you want to use unusually sized materials.

    (Note, though, that you can't typically print borderless to custom sheet sizes - the standard workaround is to use sheets slightly larger than you need, and then simply guillotine to the printed edge after printing).

  • Borderless Sheet Sizes Supported
    5 by 3.5"
    6 by 4"
    7 by 5"
    10 by 8"
    12 by 12"
    14 by 11"
    17 by 11"

    A3+
  • Roll Printing Support?

    Does the printer support roll media, and do you need an accessory device for this?

    Even if the printer doesn't support roll media, you can still buy rolls, cut sheets from the roll, and use those. Just leave them to flatten for a few days as paper curl can be a painful issue with printers.

  • Roll Width Support
    Rolls up to 13" Wide
  • Borderless Printing On Rolls?

    Can the printer print right to the edge when using roll media?
