RE: Pinters might be OT



I know you mentioned that you wanted to stick with a 19 inch printer but IMO your best bet for an Epson upgrade would be an Epson 3800. Excellent quality output for digital negatives and much better ink economy compared to the 2400 or the new 1400. Even though the printer costs about $1300 that includes about $500 worth of ink which makes the printer price slightly more than the 2400. The ink carts for the 2400 are about 30% more than the 2200 and the 2400 guzzles ink with it’s frequent cleaning cycles which can’t be controlled by the user.

After 3 years and thousands of pages my Epson 2200 is giving me problems. I have a feeling new printer is around the corner. I have a few questios to the list. There are / were many 2200 users. What have you guys upgraded to? To everybody else, what printers are you using and maybe a short list of pros and cons. Categories that I am interested in are: diginegatives: will it print pictorico and cheap transparency. What alt process are you using it for. What is the quality of simple B&W prints on paper. Quality of colour prints. How fast does it use the ink? Are you happy with the printer?
For now I think I will stick to 13" printers.
I do not want to flood the list so feel free to respond off line
