I recently got a Epson 1200, not fully appreciating the bundled software that comes with it, namely, Photoshop 5.0 LE and Vivid Details Test Strip. In the enclosed materials was an Adobe upgrade offer to PS 5.0 for $299.00. To make a long story short, when I contacted Adobe, they said they weren't shipping PS 5.0 any longer but if I wanted to upgrade to PS 5.5, I could do it for $499.99. After a little hasseling, they finally agreed to ship me the full PS 5.5, including Image Ready, for the original offer of $299.00. Also included was overnight delivery for free. Inasmuch as I was already planning to switch to Photoshop from PhotoImage, somewhere in the future, I figure this little deal saved me the cost of the Epson 1200, which was only $404.00 from Buy.Com. Incidentally, the Vivid Details Test Strip plug-in is probably another $100.00 savings. For an old darkroom chemical smelling amateur, this software put me right back at home in the digital world and is a great add-on to PS. Beyond the bundled software deals, the Epson 1200 is perfoming way beyond my expectations. In calibrating my Sony ES-200 monitor with the PhotoDisc test target, I found no variations. I know it sounds hard to believe, but it was dead on with the printer. My thanks to Bob Fernandez for his posting on the Epson 1200. I totally cuncur with his findings. - Please: Stay on topic.
