    Just from a customer who returned the SG540 in S. California.

    1. The ink bag does not register with the printer.
    2. The contour cut stopped after cutting.

    Roland took the printer back.

    While that may be true in your case, it is an atypical situation.

    Signrios, I think it would be a smooth transition for you moving to another Roland machine. If you've been using Versa Works, then Versa Works Dual will be no problem converting over to. Make sure that you take some time to get to a dealer and see the printer in action. If they don't have one onsite, have them get print samples off of a SG of your files - make sure to include some lighter colors. This is where I've seen customers be less than satisfied. Also ask about print speeds for the samples that you have printed. You may find that you prefer the VG-540 over the SG.
    Good luck.

    Another customer with returned SG-540 here : Banding on mine was present no matter how many steps I set, technician spoke with the Japanese ppl and they couldn't find the problem either. Bi-dir was also ugly all the time. Buy mimaki cjv150, it's cheaper and better or buy VG 540 it seems that those have less problems.
