I'm back from a month photographing in New Mexico and noticed that the 9000 is coming out so I wonder if anyone can compare ..... 9000 output to a regular epson desktop printer model like the EX or the Hi Fi Jet for the world of BIG. The droplet size of the 9000 is what? I have looked at the Roland HiFi Jet this week at Digital Pulse and the output was at the level of the epson 3000 as regards to grainyness/dot size. It looked great printed big from a distance but not close up which kinda eliminated small prints. The output direct from Roland (I drove over to their labs) showed about half the dot size on same materials. Roland uses the epson heads (they don't know which one, I'm waiting for an answer), nonvariable droplet. The heads had just been replaced on the Digital Pulse machine (which eliminates wear) which leaves RIP selection (theirs was the 6 color onyx) as a possible variable compared to the out of the box RIP from Roland. (I liked the bundled RIP better at first look) The "archival" MIS sixcolor and JPG glossy combination sample that I printed on my EX that I brought with me blew the HiFi Jet away for dot size. Any discussion will be very appreciated on the 9000 output quality level. Yes, I would be modifying the 9000 for archival materials. Feel free to e mail me at email@example.com for discussion off list if you like besides the epson list. I always post results to the list when I get real information anyway.
