I am looking to buy a printer that will print 16x20 and smaller photos. I am looking at the (Epson Stylus Pro 4000 Professional Edition) Is anyone familiar with this model from Epson. How does the quailty of the print compare to a thermal print?
Thank you for any help.

I been itching to buy the printer....Watch out for ink costs tho. Ultrachrome is pretty hard to find ( cheap ). Other than that....I give it a 25 on a scale from 1 - 10. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Set one up as a Gemini 2 system yesterday, people can't get enough of the workhorse that is the 4000. If possible get the pro with the colorburst RIP software

"If possible get the pro with the colorburst RIP software"

Jason, I've been looking at both models. Why the RIP software? There is about a $400 difference with the software and the network card. I'm trying to justify.

I can't coment on the comparison to thermal prints, but my Pro 4000 more than meets my expectations for print quality, speed and functionality, and I'm just using Epson drivers and profiles for Epson paper with a firewire connection.

Is firewire faster?

It doesn't really matter. The limiting factor is the speed of the printer, not the speed of the connection. Printing a 16x20 in high quality mode takes a LOT of time.

Theoretically it should be faster than USB, but I've read other posts on dpreview and fredmiranda.com stating that USB 2 and firewire seem about equal when running the Pro 4000. The Epson internal 10/100 BaseT Ethernet available with the Pro 4000 Professional Edition should be faster, if that's possible, but I think it's main advantage would the ability to connect with longer cables than USB or firewire (which have a recommended limit of about 10' I believe). It is a big machine, so finding a sturdy place to set it up within 10' of a PC can be an issue.
