2016 March We have a full review of the SC-P7000, replacement for the SP7900. The changes in ink set over the SP7900 suggest that a SureColor replacement for the SP4900 could well be announced in 2016

2011 November – SP4900 review

2010 October 21st Keith visited Epson UK and had a look at the 4900 (and 7890)

The 4900 is being aimed much more at the proofing market and high end print side of things, which would explain why the 4880 is still a current product.

The 4900 is appreciably bigger than the old 4880, and if you look at the pictures below, you can see how it compares to the 3880

29th We’re told by Epson that the 4880 will remain a current product and available alongside the 4900.

21st The 4900 is announced (along with 7890/9890)

And yes, it does have black ink switching at last!

“The Epson Stylus Pro 4900 is a new 17-inch printer offering professional photographers a super-wide colour gamut with automated colour accuracy. Its high level of automation and robust mechanism make the Epson Stylus Pro 4900 a highly productive workhorse for the print studio environment. The Epson 4900 is priced at £2295 and will be available from November 2010.”
