Epson Stylus Photo 1500W
Like the newer XP-950, this printer features six dye-based inks: CMYK plus light cyan and light magenta. Without any grey inks, it’s a poor choice for black-and-white photo printing, and best suited to glossy colour output. The ink tanks have a capacity of 11ml, which is on the low side for large-format printing. At least the 1500W can generate full A3+ sized prints, unlike the XP-950, taking about 11 and a half minutes in top quality mode.
There’s nothing to choose in print quality between the two, both being particularly vivid when printing landscape shots, although the 1500W is slower.
