Hello all,

I'm looking for a new inkjet printer that takes A3 and also copes pretty well with heavy paper weights. I sometimes use up to 300gsm and have found the slightly older Epsons (like the c82)to begood at this due to the straight feed (tried a canon s750 but that just jammed, as do the newer more photo paper oriented Epsons like the c84).

I've been checking out the Epson 1290 and it looks quite promising, they tray looks like it has a better entry angle like my c82 - I know there's newer ones out but I fear they might not cope with the heavier weights like the c84 did. Anyone have any experiences using heavier papers and could recommened a suitable printer? Or could comment on the 1290?

The 1290 is perfect for 300gms and even heavier, Brian Ireland
