    i run a vs540 wt mt and yes its slow compared to normal prints approx half speed.. fastest for that type of head is 2xcmyk roughly half it if light inks used and again if wt mt.
    you have to have a regular use for the wt mt colours else it will be a profit drain and a load of hassle.
    i have just given up on the white ink after about 6-7 years due to continual clogging problems of the wt ink even after going over and above the manufactures maintenance. the mt remains perfect but the white too many issues and cost.
    you may also be disappointed with the opacity of the white and the met at best is a bright silver (only on gloss media ) but both have there uses and can work well. i would see it all working before and a good think about the intended use. its low use upkeep that is the real draw back.
