| p.2 #4 · What's the best option for a $3,500 printer? |
I bought the Canon 44" ipf 8400 last year with lots of rebates. The total cost was way below $3500. Indeed just $300 or so more than the 24" carriage (with way smaller tanks). The 44" ships with 300 mL tanks! When you consider the value of the ink you are paying only a few $100s more than the top end 13" printers!
Certainly a no brainier verses the 24" version if the, rebated, prices are similiar. I "traded in" my HP Z3100 (photographed the SN and then gave it away). No, I do not print a lot but I do have the room (it's long!) and what a thrill to see HUGE prints come out of the printer. It prints really, really fast has a quick hand off from the computer and a fine, easy to use, Photoshope plug-in.
I actually un-packed it myself and, with two strong men to put it on the stand, installed the drivers, etc. and was printing with no support calls. It has a, dedicated, blue ink tank (no glosser tank-not needed) and the blues are to die for. Much better prints than the HPZ31/3200 and works like a small format printer, but with roll paper) no hassle. Thought I might miss the internal spectrophotometer but no. So PM me, if you are serious, for more info.
