well well well.
i believe that i am getting close to the end of my lovehate affair with the free HP 2800 Business Inkjet that I scored a year ago. it's eating films by the half dozen and being a general bitch by suddenly taking a day to print one film (i wish that i was kidding) and just working and then not working very sporadically.
part of the problem is that even though this printer works with a Mac, stunningly and quite brilliantly on the part of HP you can only update software, firmware and drivers with a PC. SMOOTH HP real smooth. assjackers.
so, i'm looking for a Mac friendly workhouse printer for 13x19 films. seems like from past experience and what i've read around the web that Epson is the way to go.
any advice on which models? i'm comparing the 1400, 1800, and 2400 currently, though feel free to chime in on other models or brands. naturally spending less is more, so i am leaning towards the 1400 since it uses only (only, ha! ) 6 cartridges rather than 8.
a printer that can also print decent color prints of illustrations (not photos) would icing on the cake.
anyhoo. yeah seeking big fat opinions. what printers do you use, know and like for films, at least capable of printing 13x19?
