||Compare Epson DX8 and DX5 Printhead, What’s the Difference?

Project Description

Why it’s smart to use DX8 printhead instead of DX5?

Reasonable Choice

For DX5 printer user, it’s painful to pay USD1000 – 1200 for new printhead every few months,  and it’s keep increasing. It’s actually not reasonable to buy a inexpensive printer while pay such amount for maintenance. DX5 users usually don’t really have other choice, until the DX8 finally launched.

The latest Epson DX8 printhead got slight advantages in performance and huge advantage in price, USD300 only.

After DX8 printer are launched in middle of 2017, many DX5 users are already working on DX8 printers and are satisfied with its performance and … price of course.
