Default Where to buy Epson 960?

OK, I can't seem to find the 960 at any brick & mortar stores. CompUSA has it online only. And there are several "shady" online dealers carrying it. Any thoughts as to where to purchase it?

Jeff,
Just was perusing amazon.com and they're listing for $349.99. Don't know if that's good, bad or indifferent as I'm just starting to research photo printers. Looking at the Photo 960 and Canon i850. Know where there's some reviews? Why have you decided on the 960? Best wishes in the hunt!

Big.... no huge difference between the epson 960 and the canon i850. The canon does'nt have photo optimised black. Uses basically 3 colors since it only does 600 dpi on the black. Yes it has a small drop size which is nice but the colors will have a tendency to come out light or not as ummm sharp and vivid. The colors may be accurate but without clear dark blacks to border the colors your pictures will lack that certain film quality. Tell you what I'll get a few prints from both and show you the difference. Give me a week to put these together and post em.

These are the best most honest places I can think of to order online.

bufpilot:

I have researched on this site, as well as read the latest PC World which gives the 960 very good marks.

I want borderless printing, which can only be done on an Epson if you want any prints larger than 4x6.

Now my only choice is the Epson 960 or the 2200. For the money, I am opting for the 960.
