Hi, I have been going crazy trying to get a GREAT phtoto printer that can also do decent plain text too. I was leaning towrds the Canon i960..and or i860. I know the 960 is a bit better for photos but every review I've read says it's painfully slow on text. To make a long story short..I went to Best Buy with my Canon G3 and some very good photos. I did a side by side of the Canon i960, i860 AND Epson R300.
I wasn't that interested in the Epson initially as it looks inferior spec wise...I mean number of nozzels, picoleter size etc. But results were...
the i960 MAYBE looked 1% better than the Epson..but 4 sure the Epson blew away the i860 Canon. Since I needed the printer to do a lot of text..I chose the R300 over both Canons. When I got it home..and used the Epson paper...it looked even better. I'm pretty sure Epson is going to get some great reviews on the R300. Two Best Buy reps also agreed the R300 looked better than the Canon i860...and JUST about = to the i960. So since it's faster on text..it just might be a better all around printer than the new Canons.
We all know that in digital cameras..the MOST megapixels doesn't make 1 camera superior to another. Lots of ingredients create the final product..THE PICTURE. Guess same goes 4 printers..Epson doesn't have the nozzels, or picolter size...but somehow it produces an AWESOME photo. You can't go wrong with it. Plus if it's true that Canon ink tends to fade...I say go 4 the Epson!
