beyond the marketing hype and look at the features and performance issues you need to consider when navigating through this suddenly competitive field.
Like most of their reviews, some nuanced insights, and some pretty basic/comments that may not be totally on target...http://arstechnica.com/guides/buyer/inkjets.ars/1
just ran across some comments about the article at http://digg.com/hardware/Ars_Technica_Guid...r_photographers
particularly like the comments that reference (indirectly) Lightjets/Chromiras and inkjet proponents' responses:
Ive heard (but not seen) that the best printers don't actually print, but rather shine light on regular photo paper that then gets developed in the traditional way.
Owning your own printer isn't about print quality or price, it's about control and instant gratification. With the right printer, paper, and profiles I know exactly what to expect--if for some reason I still don't get what I'm looking for I can tweak the settings and reprint on the spot. It's the same reason some people prefer to have their own darkroom.
