Re: C80 First Take



<x-charset iso-8859-1>You beat me to the punch, Don.

I haven't tried it out on text yet but only on one photo - my older hp did
better, but I worked with that to adjust the colors and haven't worked with
the Epson yet.  I'll do that this week.

Subject: C80 First Take


| I fooled around with the C80 yesterday for a bit. Here's my first
| impressions:
|
| 1. Blazing fast text printer that produces very good well-formed text.
| 2. For photos, not appreciably faster than the current 6 color inkjets
| (maybe even slower) with quality not as good as the current 6 color
inkjets.
| Metamarism is alive and well, I think. I say "think" because while I
didn't
| see a difference with lighting changes, large areas did go black if I
| changed the viewing angle of the print -- sort of like the old passive
| matrix laptop screens.
| 3. Didn't test with graphics.
|
| On the quality, there seems to be more grain. The prints were more neutral
| than the six color dye printers, which to my eye oversaturate colors. But
| the colors tended to look a bit washed out. Opinions can vary of course.
|
| On plain paper, I didn't think that the durabrite inks were more brite,
| though perhaps they are more durable ...... On plain paper, the quality
| comparison with the six color dye printers was less pronounced -- I
| personally couldn't decide which prints I preferred.
