Digital Camera World Verdict

Quite compact for an 17-inch A2 inkjet printer, the Epson SureColor SC-P900 is easy to live with. Significant updates and upgrades over the previous P800 model make the new edition easier simpler and more intuitive to use, as well as improving the quality of the results. It’s not exactly quick in its top-quality modes and ink prices are dearer than before but, overall, it’s a sound choice for both color and mono large-format photo printing.

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.

The Epson SureColor SC-P900 promises to be one of the best large-format printers for photographers. Originally announced in March 2020, its availability was delayed due the Covid pandemic – but is now finally available to buy, and for us to test out.

The vast majority of your camera’s megapixels go to waste if you limit yourself to A4 or Letter-sized prints, and the end product is likely to look totally lost if you hang it on the wall. Popular A3+ or 13-inch printers bump things up to about twice the size of an A4/Letter print, leading examples of which include the Canon PIXMA PRO-200 and Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300, as well as Epson’s own SureColor SC-P700
