Go to the 900 or the 750 personally I like the 900 but I suppose the 750 is the better photo printer. I've actually got mouse pads under my 900 the thing actually shakes it's that fast. Although I have never timed it I don't think it is any faster than the 750 when printing in the 1440 dpi mode my estimate is about the same. Of the 4 Epsons I have 2 on each computer it seems that the printouts are like brighter from the 900 than the others 1160,1200, and 750}This is the way it appears to me.
