    I know these roll to roll printers are not perfect. But what is everyones favorite trouble free printer? I've owned a bunch and am curious what everyone is having lunch with.

    Epson GS6000
    HP Latex 26500
    HP design Jet
    Seiko M64s

    I've had a Mimaki JV3, but currently use an Epson S70670. The Epson is far superior in print quality, though the true solvent inks did seem to last a bit longer than the Eco-sol everyone uses now. I am glad to be rid of the smell of solvent inks though.

    I having breakfast lunch and dinner with the Designjet! That's if we are talking trouble free, easy to use and maintain. Phenomenal color, quality and speed, just lacks outdoor durability.

    Our Designjet Z6200 has printed 135,000 sq ft with only one service call and routine maintenance. The Roland has been trouble free as well for 3 years (did get the heads replaced once as we printed so much material), XF-640

    Just got the new printer running yesterday. I'll get back to you after it gets some miles on it. Only ran a Roland to this point. Not too much in the way of maintenance issues with Roland.

    big fan of the HP 560. its scary letting the little guy go without supervision because im such a control freak, but it has very very rarely failed me. in theory, im a big fan of the swiss q nyala+ rob the robot because s*** man robots are cool.
