    I have posted a page for this printer in the Reviews section if anyone wants to post their comments there. Here is a link to the product page.

    Here is a link
    to a review of the printer already online.

    The brief period I had mine (2 yrs) it worked well... when it worked. Mine, at least, needed constant maintenance to produce a print I was happy with. It finally died and I upgraded to a 1204... which was one of the better things I did for the business.

    i'll be honest they are asking 6000 for this printer, but i am not sure if this is a good deal or i am just running into a old clunker. The printer has been sitting for months and supposedly the heads have some kind of solution that prevents them form getting ruin

    I would never buy one that I could not see what the nozzle check looks like! It may have been flushed but who knows what it was printing like when they flushed the heads. I have one that needs 2 heads that I just replaced with a ValueJet. For that price on that Printer it should be working perfectly and can show you that. Heads and Mainboards are expensive for it.

    Heads are very expensive + labor, I will get a new 1204 printer to be honest with you.

    A 48" Printer does not match-up with a F-II, move on up to VJ-1614...

    The F-II is a good printer, needs alot of Maintenance but if taken care of produces great prints, especially if you upgrade the Firmware and put the Wave Tech on it... If the price is right, it may be worth it... If it needs Heads and Pumps it will get costly!!!

    I Have a falcon out-door (AKA Prism-Jet) and use it everyday.. never have a problem.. Do everything with it.. Just make sure to clean it after each use.. Takes about 2 min. to clean.. Wouldn't spend that much though. I bought the sign Warehouse version ( PrismJet) before they discontinued it 2 years ago with warr. for much less.. Stepping into the other printer will cost you much more when I can do the same with mine..Just at a slower pace I'm Sure!! Wraps too!! Save your Money!!

    That makes 5 replies to this thread and no reviews where they would be much more helpful. :Sleeping:

    I know that, he has a limited budget that's why I suggested the 48"
