    I went to a friends shop to see his S60600, I noticed a distinct smell, is that something that comes with a solvent printer? I've had Roland Eco-Sol printers for the last 15 years and they don't have a smell.. Trying to decide weather to pull the trigger on ordering a new printer.. My office is 1 large air conditioned room of 1700 sq ft

    We have an S80600 and yes it does smell. Ours is in a room on it's own around 16'x20' with 9 ft ceilings and if you are printing a lot you can smell it inside the room. We recently put an exhaust fan in the room venting out the back wall and it has made a huge improvement.

    Roland smells as well, you probably got used to its smell. Your office should be large enough not to smell anything in areas other than the close surrounding of the printer.

    Or you can go with TrueVis VG2 they don't smell whatsoever (cause a Roland tech guy will try to fix it constantly)

    All eco solvent printers smell. The Epson sure color series like other manufacturers has an additive that assists with quicker off gassing(to compete against Hp) that has an oder.
    The eco is for economic inks..nothing to do with environmental friendly.

    May I please have your source on this?
    Every search I do states the "eco" refers to low VOC content compared to traditional solvent inks.

    Spent the last 14 years working for a reseller as a service manager working directly with engineers from Seiko, Roland, Epson, HP...every technical and sales training I have ever attended has described eco solvent like 2CT. VOC levels are just below the levels that require ventilation. I guess that makes them safe....I certainly would not start a home business with one.
