I know $150 is a lot of money, but if you could just swing $150 more, you can get a refurbished Stylus Photo 2200 direct from Epson, no shipping, no sales tax. They're out of them right now - they should have more in a few days, they come and go quick. B&H has them in stock for $539, but shipping will run you about $30. Epson's customer service on refurbs is every bit as good as it is on new stock, which is very good.

I can't say enough good things about my 2200. Rolando just bought one too, IIRC.

Gotta love the Epson, either them or the Canon series printers. For Epson, I would say the 2200 is the E-ching of what you would want in a printer. Quality, size, affordability, its the healthy mix. Other then the 1280, wouldn't hurt to look into an R800 from epson, in your price range and does the job.

Other then Epson, look into the Canon i9900. Good printer, similar size options as the 2200.

If you have attended a Unique Photo sponsored event, check our flyer we have discounts on the 2200. Drop a line, we can see what we can do for ya for you are GG faithfull.

And furthermore, Refurb's on printer....not worth it, for $100 you have a lot of "unknown" on the printer, for $100 its worth the peace of mind.

Canon i9100 or i9900. The i9100 is now around $289 and is equivalent (in my opinion FAR better) than a 1280...

I bought a refurbed 2200 on E-Bay a year ago for around $400. I haven't checked lately, but have to believe that they are going for less now. BTW. I have made more than 600 prints on it and it works GREAT. NO problems, NO worries. :-)

About a year ago I bought a re furbished Epson 2000P from Staples for $200.

Now I know the 2000P isn't the greatest but as far as being refurbished it is working just fine. I just wanted to get something to get me going and now that I have better understanding of digital printing I can make a better choice in the near future. I had been looking at the 2200 since it came out and it has not dropped in price very much. Not like some of the regular consumer models after they have been out for awhile.

I don't think I would buy a refurb if the price difference was less than $100 but I would consider it if there was more of a difference.

I agree; the Canon i9900 is the best desktop ink-jet printer I have ever tested.

I've got a Epson 1280 and thinking of a new printer. What are the papers like (price & colorwise) with the i9900 ?

That's what I like about the Canon printers. They (or the manufacturer) isn't nearly as picky as the Epson about paper. I've stuck all kinds of media through my two Canons.

The color is great! You do have to match the output profile to the paper. For example, all the Red River papers have Canon printer profiles available for them. You just download them from the Red River site and plug them in! If you're using something else -- canvas, watercolor paper, etc. -- then you may have to experiment and create your own custom profile for that media.

Have fun!

Bob

The other post is soooo right; I have used Legion, Adorama, Moab (my favorite), Canon, Konica, and even Epson papers in the i9900. The Glossy paper (both standard and pro) that Canon offers may be the BEST glossy paper that anybody ever made; as good if not better than the Konica which was my all time favorite.

Inks are harder to find; they don't have'em at Wal-Mart but all the office stores have them and you can always buy them on line.
