I want to start a discussion about what are the best Inkjet printers? So…
What are your opinions regarding the new Epsons 9800, 7800 and 4800?
What do you think about HP30, HP130 and HP DesignJet 5500?
What about Canon ImagePROGRAF printers?
The new Epson printers seems to be fantastic, I know from someone with very hi skills in color management and that is already using an Epson 4800 that the new Ultrachrome K3 ink is great; it has even higher gamut, much neutral Photo Black and very deep black with a L value as low as 2.6! (I don’t know the paper, but I’m sure it’s not Epson paper and is not glossy). Apparently Epson promises are true.
In my opinion, HP is far away in the Inkjet technology their DJ5500 is ancient and very unstable for proofing (they must stay with their color lasers that are very good) and Canon has some amazing technology in their small printers but their plotters are good and very fast but can’t compete with a technology like Variable-Sized Droplet Micro Piezo and in color permanence with UltraChrome.
What are your comments?
