Epson SureColor P700 Review - Image Quality Comparisions


Details

Test images were printed at these quality levels:

  • Level 1 Superfine - 1440x720
  • Level 3 Photo - 1440x1440
  • Level 4 SuperPhoto 5760x1440
  • Level 5 SuperPhoto Carbon Black 5760x1440

High Speed and Black Enhance Overcoat on.

Each image was scanned at 600dpi as a tiff file and viewed in Photoshop. It was cropped at 700px wide and the examples below are at 100% zoom.

Discussion

Quality levels and differences therein are nothing new. The progression from least to greatest is also predictable.  You can clearly see lines, artifacts, and rough edges on Level 1. Print quality improves markedly at Level 3.  For most, Level 3 will be the go-to choice for a combination of quality, speed, and ink economy.  At Level 4 and 5 the results are basically equal though you will see smoother tonal gradients compared to Level 3.
