Oh gawd, Epson and their numbering system!   I think I made an error in 
my previous comments about the 1280...

Originally the first digit on the 3 digit number and first two digits on 
the 4 digit numbers indicated the class of printer and carriage size.

200, II: 720 dpi 2 carts
300: 720 dpi integrated black and color cart
400, 440: 720 (2 carts) 4 color
500: 720 dpi 4 color
600, 640, 660: 1440 dpi 4 color
700: 1440 6 color photo
800, 850: 1440 business class 4 color
900: 1440 speed class 4 color
1160: 1440 11+ inch wide 4 color
1200: 1440 11+ inch wide 6 color
1500, 1520: "wide carriage" 4 color
3000: 1440 "wider carriage" 4 color

Then there are the 2000p (pigmented 6 color 12" wide)

The 5000 (proofer dye)  and 5500 (proofer pigmented)
The 7000  24" dye and 7500 24" pigmented
The 9000  ??" dye and 9500 ??" pigmented

But over time things have become completely ridiculous;

The 740, 750, 760 are 4 color (1440 dpi)

The 780, 880 and 980 which are 2880 dpi 4 color  (780 is new to me, so 
I'm jumping to conclusions here)

The 777 was a 4 color printer at 1440.

The 1280 (which I have yet to see) is probably an upgrade to the 1200.

(in which case, I made an error in an earlier posting as I indicated
the 1280 as an upgrade to the 1270.  I believe the 1290 is the upgrade 
to the 1270, and the 1280 is likely an upgrade to the 1200 at 2880 dpi)

I think I also saw a 1180, which would be a 2880 dpi upgrade to the 1160 
(4 color 11+ inch carriage).

The 870 and 1270 are 6 color "fade resistant" chipped cart, and I think 
the 890 and 1290 are the upgrades to them.  I don't know what they did 
to upgrade them.

The numbering system was further messed up by some method of 
distinguishing between the chipped and unchipped carts.

Even Epson customer service has a hard time keeping up these days.

I suggest you try Epson's website at www.epson.com

The North American one (at least used to) have all the current printers 
with description.

I give up!

At one point the odd tens place meant a 6 color printer (750, 870, 1270, 
etc)  Then they came out with the 670 and 777, so that no longer 
complied.  Then the 70 and 80 and 90 was supposed to indicate the 
"chipped cart".  But the 900 and 980 use the same cart.
