Can I please get an advise on a 13" x 19" printer capable. Quality is my priority - I dont mind waiting if the pictures come out nice.

Do you have any fade problems with it Tim. I've spent sometimes searching and also found the Epson R1800 which is about the same price. Decision Decison...........

I have not experienced any fade problems with the canon. From my experience in a computer service dept. the epsons always have print head clogging issues, although this is on cheaper models. Not familiar with that specific epson.

I have the HP 8700 and use it for all of my art work, some of which will be in a gallery show in October. It's a great printer. If longevity is a consideration then this printer has that advantage minus the head clogging problems associated with the Epson's.

Unfortunately, Canon at this time does not have a competitive product availabe with archival characteristics. Some people have a problem with the fact that HP uses tri color ink carts. I don't have a problem with it and the fact that your getting a new print head every time you change a cartiridgeis abig plus.

My printer is used for professional purposes so I'm not as concerned with small cost variations among printers. I need quality ouput first and foremost. I'm very happy with this printer and would recommend it to anyone interested in professional quality images.

Thank you Tony. I think I am going to get the Canon i9900 as I am familiar with Canon products (I have a canon i860/960) - ink refills is quite easy and inexpensive.

I can't say anything negative about the i9900 either. I love it.
