I am heading to Epsons headquarters in two weeks to look at the 100ppm MFP and the wide format systems. If anyone has any specific questions or things they'd like me to ask make a list and I'll try to get them all covered.
Jason - Also curious on your thoughts of the image quality. And Epson Europe has a 75ppm version, would like to know if they're bringing that model over here.
Can't find an exact model #, but execs in Europe confirmed that they're offering at least one 75ppm MFP. This datasheet confirms the speed is available, and the other link is a presentation from Seiko on the initial two engine strategy...
75 or so ppm is coming. I love the print quality. It looks amazing and it looks just as good on print 100 as it did on 1. The warranty is 3 years on parts and print head with an option to purchase 2 more years of warranty. We signed up today as a dealer and I am submitting a PO to get two of them in our office tomorrow.

How have things been working out with Epson here in the states?
David, We have had 0 traction with it. Customers in our market still have no use for ink as best we can tell. We have demo'd the machine to people but have not sold a single one. People noticed the page curl on exit and the fix for that was to buy thicker paper which people don't want to do in an office environment for regular documents. I still have the first 2 we bought if anyone wants to buy them for any reason
I talked to some other early adopter dealers and they have shared the same things. One friend of mine purchased quite a few and has not sold any of them last I checked.
