    If any of you fine fine people could give me a hand on which machine to go with. I have a sp 540v looking trade up. i have never had any problems with my roland. Price differance is about $3500.

    I thank you in advance

  2. The CJV is a little faster printing, but the time you'll wait for the machine to turn on/off the pinchrollers negates the faster printing time. In other words the machinces are close to equal regarding finished/printed job. While having the CJV will eliminate the possibility of the pinchrollers ruining a print during the cut, how many times has your roland done this?

    Two things about the Mimaki I like are.
    Available six color printing
    Take up reel is standard and it will reverse. This would allow you to contour cut a whole roll of vinyl without it hitting the floor and sticking together.
