OVERALL which is better? Canon i9100 or Epson Stylus Pro 2200.
So let's talk about their pros and cons. There are so many pros in each of the 2 but also are about equal amount of cons in both.
OK this is all the info I gathered so far:
(when I say pros n cons I mean their differences FROM each other, not in general ; )
-costs about $200 less
-a little better photographic printing quality due to the "The 2 pl droplet" - (2200 has 4 pl droplet )
-A LOT FASTER
-installs fast and easy to operate
-printed ink lasts ~25yrs
-not enough paper choices for high quality prints (artists papers) - this is only what I've read, however if you go to Canon's website there are plenty papers to choose from, I just dont know if they're really good enough for their price.
-a little better b&w printing because it's got 2 kinds of black inks.
-printed ink lasts ~90yrs
-many great papers to choose from
-a lot of people had problems initially installing and running. Needs a lot of color managements at 1st.
-their old styles known for their cloggin heads.
So do you guys think the info I gathered is pretty much accurate? If not please correct me and give me more details on the printer you have.
Anymore pros n cons to add?
Thanks a lot.
You've done a lot of very good research.
Can't help you with your decision, but here's a pretty comprehensive review on the Epson 2200 (known as the Epson Stylus Photo 2100 A3 printer in the UK) if you haven't seen it:

I can't answer your question either. I've just recently switched to the i9100 from an older Epson and I'm delighted with the results. Would I be happy with the Epson. Absolutely. But for me the savings, print look, speed and quietness sold me on the 9100. I think most of my clients can live with a 25 year print. If they need archival, I'll farm it out. Before you buy, print a pic off both printers and compare. Which do you prefer?
