The new Epson 3800 is a nice little printer, but the paper handling isn't what I am wanting. The good thing is that most of the printers I am considering have excellent output, and it comes down to usability. I am moving in a direction of printing very large, so I can personally oversee my print orders for my commerical customers. More and more of my prints are being put in office spaces, including large common areas. So printing large appeals to me. One option is to keep my Epson 4000 for smaller jobs and pickup a 44" or 60" printer for my large output.
Michael Reichmann seems to enjoy his Canon IPF5000, so I might take a look at their larger offering. The HP Z3100 series looks nice, as they have a built-in profiling solution inside of the printer. I have learned, however, that building profiles is much more than just printing targets and reading them back. 75% science and 25% art.
Time to go kick some tires.
