Which wide-carriage printer?


S

sosborn

I'm in the market for a wide carriage printer and am looking at the four
leading contenders. Epson 2200 ($600) Epson 1280 ($380), Canon i9100 ($450),
and the Canon s9000 ($260).
Looks to me like the most value lies with the canon s9000. Reviews suggest
that the picture quality of the 9000 is only minimally below that of the
9100. The Canons also look to be faster than the Epsons.
The Epsons use pigments, but I'm not sure if that's an issue. I guess the
only other thing the Epsons can do is print on the poster rolls. Not sure if
that would sway me either.
Any other considerations I need to make?

Take your pick, they're all good.

The Canons are certainly fast, that's for sure.

I've got a 9000S and am reasonably content with it.

In any case, you might want to consider fitting the
printer with a CIS or CFS, else you will be paying
lots of $ for ink.

This is somewhat more problematic on the Epson
2200. The 2200 would be the obvious choice if
print permanence is a serious consideration for you.
