Default Need photo printer Opinions, Canon i950 or new HiTi 640 PS

I am not sure whether or not to go with an inkjet or a dye sub printer. I have my field narrowed down to these 2 printers. The main thing I want is for the colors to look good and not dull like the ones from the 5 minute machine at Walmart.
I had heard before that the colors were brighter with an inkjet printer. Does anyone know if this is true? I like the UV and waterproof protection with the 640PS, but the image quality and color reproduction are very important to me.

Thanks!!!!!

I think you'll need both!

Buy one and you'll want the other... :lol: An inkjet printer is good for enlargement which you can never do with a Hiti, but for convenience and speed the Hiti is hard to beat plus it's pretty economical. Plus they have a rebate right now:

Thanks!

I am having trouble deciding if I should get the new 640PS or go with the cheaper 630PS.

I would go for the 630PS (can you tell the print difference?) and use that money toward the i950 that you also like for blown-up! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have the 630ps and it is a great printer. I agree with NHL you need both printers. If your media can work in the 630ps it is a steal at www.********.net for $172. The 640ps has some other improvements but I would not consider upgrading to the newer printer.
