the upgrade over the s800 in terms of performace over the s800 or should I wait for the next upgrade of the i960? 13x19 printing is not important to me.

Anyone have experience with these two printers? Is it a big enough jump in performance to go from one to the other????

I don't have the 960 but I upgraded from my s900 to the i860 and it was a big improvement. Take a look at the picture samples on Steve's recent review of the iP4000.

The iP4000 is very similar to the i860 and the i9100 is better than your S900.

The i960 is better than the i860 but not by a lot. I was debating on getting the i960 as a dedicated photoprinter and decided that the i860 was good enough.

Take a good look a the the iP4000 it will give you really fast/cheap text printing as a bonus and save you a few bucks.

The i960 is probably going to be replaced by a printer in the iP line so if you must have the six (or more) colors then you might want to wait a month or so for Canon announcements.

I have the i960 and it is worth the upgrade.

I can't speak enough good things about the Canon i960. As canon starts bringing out the iP series printers, the i-series seems to be dropping in price. Personally I don't see any reason why buying an i960 now would be a bad decision.
