Pros Broad print dimensions, vast print mediums, low print costs, fantastic image fidelityHigh resolution, vivid colors, great dynamic rangeConsistent color, easy set-up, broad format optionsGreat color rendition, good dynamic range, good tonal rangeEasy to use, decent resolution, prints common sizes
Cons Huge footprint, expensiveHard to set-up, big footprintMicrobanding in grayscale, relatively low definition in dark areasPoor resolution, few paper options, relatively expensiveMicrobanding in larger formats, off skin tones, over saturation
Bottom Line This near-professional quality machine leaves little to be desiredThis is a top-tier, professional level printer at a reasonable priceThis printer yields high-quality images at a reasonable priceThis spendy machine is among the best of mid-size printers in color rendition and dynamic rangeA quality mid-size machine that will appeal to the casual user
