Hey, Gang, I'm trying really hard to decide which of these two models to buy next: 1200 or 3000. My "business" is picking up, and I'd really like to offer prints larger than my little 700 can make. Plus, I think it's time to get serious about archival inks and papers. Here's how it stacks up for me: 1200 * new, high-tech, best print quality * limited range of papers, paper size * more delicate (?) * more expensive to run * lower initial cost * no archival inks, yet 3000 * old, low-tech printheads, two generations behind the 1200 * rugged * cheaper to run, higher initial cost * lots of choices for inks & paper * archival inks available Have I missed anything? One more thought: given the age of the 3000 (in terms of design) what are the odds that it will be superceded by a new/improved model in the near future? How about new vs. refurb? If a new 3000 is $1100, and a refurb is $850, why go for the refurb? rafe b. - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
