    What is the ideal humidity for an Epson printer?

    I just purchased a very reasonable humidifier to run in the same room I keep my 4900. The humidity range is from 30-60% What would you recommend as an ideal setting?

    Unofficial Epson recommendation is 40-60%. My studio is normally on the high side closer to 60%---I've had no problems with my 9900 and 9890 other than regular nozzle checks prior to printing.

    I live in the southwest US and try to keep my humidity between 40 & 50%. been using an Epson printer for many years with no problems (4000, 9800 and now a 9900 for close to 2-years). The only issues like Ken has said is minor nozzle checks. Lack of humidity seems to be the major problem effecting Epson printers.
