Hurray For the Free Bee!
EIZO make monitors - some of the very best in the business - and from time to time change and improve their model line-up. But they are not all serious colour-accurate technological experts - they like to go play sometimes and they want t you to do so too. Sooooo,
The EIZO people will be offering a FREE GoPro Hero white camera outfit valued at $ 269 with all ColorEdge with CN orders. This will apply to models CG246, CG276, CG223W, CX240-CAL, CX270-CAL, and CS230-CAL.
This offer is on right now and will go to the end of financial year - the 31st of July 2013.
Now the Epson people make printers and scanners. I know - I own one of each - and I feel myself particularly qualified to announce the next Free Bee Actually it is a Cash Back Free Bee and that is all the sweeter.
The Epson Photo Stylus R 3000 printer is a wonderful A3+ inkjet printer. It will do rolls, disks, sheets, and slabs. It has useful-sized ink cartridges that are not world-shatteringly expensive and the quality of the printing straight out of it is superb. Getting a correct print out of it is the least fight of any printer I have used and to some extent makes a lot of the complexity that is peddled about printing irrelevant. that is a the wrong thing to say when we are supposed to be experts....but the pleasure of just dropping the paper in and getting the print out is wonderful.
Anyway, Epson want to sell more, and to do so have offered $ 200 cash back if you get one of these printers between now and the 15th of July 2013 - you send them proof of purchase before the 30th of July 2013 and they send you real government money that you won't get arrested for spending. If you elect to purchase a set of additional inks for the printer at the time of initial purchase - these are the 157-series - you get back and additional $ 200 - making $ 400 all up.
Now if you have bigger ambitions and want a heavier printer that will go up to A2 while still doing rolls, think of the Epson R 4900. This will get you a cashback of $ 500 in between now and July 31 2013.
SO - buzz in and gather up the honey....errr... I mean money.
