Unless you really really really need a RIP (say you need it for Quark or other finicky vector and page layout program) you may want to decline. It is the only true CMYK RIP currently available but the dithering is quite coarse compared to the standard driver. On my old StylusPro XL I found the Birmy RIP to be quite unsatisfactory for photographs. It is, on the other hand, pretty good for graphs and text and those types of things. Just not for photos with a Stylus Pro. -- I don't like it with my 3000 either but some people find it acceptable - it is better with the 1440 dpi printers than the 720 dpi printers.
