Everyone I talk to tells me the same thing about rip vs. no rip. Someone is jerking my dealers chain. The printer works just fine without a rip. If you want to run multiple images at various sizes and you want color profile capabilities then a rip is needed. You can also purchase a good rip for a lot less than $5300.00. FWIW - When I bought my HP2500 from Charette, Rhona told me it would take 4 weeks to get the printer, they are made in Spain, 4 days later it was in my office and operational. That is a company who understands customer service. Jim Davis www.visual-artists.com - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
