    Comparing these two, which is the "better" unit if both are used and basically in the same condition?
    Any big differences in the head, cutting speed, printing speed, etc.?

    *Oh, and any significant differences in the SP540 vs. SP 540v?

    I have an SP540V and an XC540.
    The XC540 is so much faster, other than that, they both make great prints.

    If you know you can support the XC with sales volume, then get that.
    I can print 50 4x8 banners a day without a problem. The SP540 would take 2-3 days to do the same amount.
