    Scooter - Surrey is a L-O-N-G way from St. Paul!!! :) ...so keep that in mind :) And really...what is it that piqued your interest in this brand? Please tell me it wasn't just the "price"!

    Scooter:

    Your vendor's ability to support the product (training, tech support, spare parts inventory, etc, etc) is critical to your success with it.

    I won't leap to any judgements about this particular company, but I would suggest exercising caution. Otherwise, what you save in terms of purchase price may cost you much more in the long run.

    I'm turned off by whole appearance of the website. The very error laden translations from Chinese to English make me want to RUN... as does the flashing misspelling of GURRANTEE in the low price guArrantee. Definitely looks like a get what ya pay for stinger.

    I agree with everyone here. Run away from this place. If you are getting a solvent printer find someone local that will support it. Low Price is not always the best thing. The local guy here also has some off lease or trade in models they sell. Still better to get a used printer from a local place then a new one from who knows where..

    Good Luck

    Vendor location is very important. Shipping cost are very important. We had equipment in N Dakota and down here in Florida. Now, the equipment bought in N Dakota would cost a fortune to be shipped all the way to the vendors. Lucky that we have vendors, here, in Florida that will take care of it.
