Default Best Photo/Text Printer for the price?

After much thought, I am waiting for the future line of Photo epsons with Archival inks, hopefully they will surmount the 2200's slow speed, etc.. I think archival ink is very important.

But until then, I need a text printer now, and since I am a fine artist having done a lot of photography and etc., I would like a decent photo printer.

I know I've heard that Canon's i850 is better at text than the i950...

I've searched the back threads, couldn't find much in this regard. so I thought I'd create the strand.

My questions:

1.) What do you think is the best photo/text printer for the price?
2.) How bad are some of the photo printers with text?

You should read Steve's reviews on the i850 and i950.
I've also read that the i950 isn't that great at text.
I use a laser for 99% of my text stuff and use the i950
just for photos. I have done a few pages of text
and it looks okay to me. About as good as my old NEC laser.

If you are going for mostly text, save yourself some bucks and get the i850.
