    I'm looking into upgrading in the next 6months and I'm not sure which direction to go in. My space is rather limited but I could fit the Epson 40600 and a cutter I can move around easily. It would be tighter but doable.

    So i've been searching a reading reviews on the SG, which most are from this site, and well I don't really have high hopes for the SG after all I've been reading, from head clogging problems, to just wasteful ink usage in cleanings and just general issues seem to be fairly common with these. I know this is a small sampling but it's all I have to go by.

    As for the Epson 40600 I haven't read much because I don't find much and the conversations I've seen have been very positive. Cleaning and maintenance seem very straight forward and simple.

    But I would like to know from users of these machines what are the daily in's and out's of your machine? Maintenance, ink usage, calibrations, etc..

    I would get the Epson. I have the S80 and like it. I have seen nothing but complaints about the Roland SG. Especially the first series.

    I just saw they released the SG2. And one big improvement is ink usage in cleaning cycles. Maybe they have made improvements. Same heads though but new ink. Time will tell I guess.

    Tough to beat the EPSON at that price point

    i have an epson surecolor S 40600 for sale, 2 years old. in my experience its an AMAZING machine. i just upgraded 2 months ago to the S80600. it cleans itself, tells you when it needs manual cleaning etc. colors are vivid and EXTREMELY high quality. it dries in minutes after printing, i literally take it off the machine and cut it right away or laminate.

    i have MANY other sign shops who purchase from me. anyways... if you want to buy it let me know and i can show you print head patters, not a single nozzle is missing. 16k new asking for 9K O.B.O. (include ink plus material to get you off the ground)

    These are less than $9k from Grimco brand new and installed after rebates....They are the best printer on the market hands down.....but there is no way it will fetch more than a few grand being over 2yrs old.

    I am in the market for a printer also, but it sounds like your pricing is high compared to others. I know pricing is all relative, but I'm listening.
