nope, epson tends to have atleast a 2 year product cycle. The previous version the 2200 was around for more than that and is still a great printer

Several years ago, Epson was releasing a new 13 inch wide printer about every year (EX, 1200, 1270, 1280), but that pace has slowed considerably to a new offerering every few years.

But, many of the 13 inch wide printers were announced in October, but availability, depending on market, was typically much later. Typically the US was near last to get the new printer (Japan was first).

Epson is getting a bit more pressure from Canon, but I have not seen anything to indicate a replacement is coming. But, who knows.

But, the 2400 is a very nice printer. The only real downside I can see to the 2400 is the need to swap out the black ink for matt and gloss stocks. That is a real ink wasting method.

Enjoy! Lon

I think Epson has some real competition here...

I also love my 2400. Its prints especially black and white are spectacular. I do not like having to swap the photo black and matt black inks .... real pain and it throws away ink. Next printer needs to fix this issue!!!
