Digital Camera World Verdict

The Epson P700 gives superb results - and if quality is what you are after than this is one of the top choices for an A3+ photo printer. Thanks to its 10-ink pigment system, this large-format inkjet printer is certainly a significant step up from the older Epson P600. However, those doing regular printing may want to look at the bigger A2 Epson P900 - as its bigger, more cost effective ink tanks may well make for a better long-term investment.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

We have been waiting for the Epson SureColor P700 to arrive for quite some time. We had become accustomed to seeing new inkjet models arriving from Epson and Canon about every two years, but it has taken five years for the Epson SureColor P600 to be replaced.

Consequently, the SureColor P700 is a completely new printer rather than an upgrade, with features designed to further enhance the enjoyment of print-making. In Australia and New Zealand the printer is the P706; elsewhere it is known as the P700.
