epson has always made good printers, and their photo printers that use 6 colors are very nice....you just have to be careful and don't let the heads get clogged...

Dramatically. The 9500 is really nice. I own a ipf5000. If I didn't, I'd buy the 9500.

Re: Whats the best inkjet printer??

I stick with Epson. In a way, it's like cameras - Nikon and Canon as opposed to Sony, Casio and Samsung. I'd prefer to buy from a company with a proven track record in making the item I am wishing to purchase and not straying too far or over extending in technology or overall focus. I don't want them to also make dishwashers, televisions, toothbrushes, etc. This is why I shy away from HP, etc. Plus, Epson's have quite a proven track record from the entry-level your grandmother uses to CMYK softproofing up to several feet.
