The 860 can use a CIS system at this time the 880 can't
havne't seen the output from a 880 yet so can't comment
I have a 1160 which is the same printhead as the 860 and it's a great

The 900 may be a better bet for that workflow as it is very fast in

12 p/m in b&w mode as fast as a lot of laser printers
The 1160 though is MUCH quieter, so quiet that I can't always tell
