Which Printer ??????????? - Photography

Hi, Wonder if anyone could offer any printer advice?? I have a Canon S820 at the moment - I've been really happy with the results until the last few days when I'm getting banding in the prints and nozzle check pattern indicates a blocked photo cyan head. I've done all of the cleaning/deep cleaning routines and it won't shift. I bought it from Jessops (UK) in November last year and the same thing happened about a month after I got it and they replaced it, so this one is the second S820 I've had. They have offered to replace this ...

    Default Which Printer ???????????

    Hi,

    Wonder if anyone could offer any printer advice??

    I have a Canon S820 at the moment - I've been really happy with the results
    until the last few days when I'm getting banding in the prints and nozzle
    check pattern indicates a blocked photo cyan head. I've done all of the
    cleaning/deep cleaning routines and it won't shift. I bought it from
    Jessops (UK) in November last year and the same thing happened about a month
    after I got it and they replaced it, so this one is the second S820 I've
    had. They have offered to replace this one with whatever I want (obviously,
    if it costs more that the S820, I will pay the difference). But which one
    to go for????

    I really like the S820, but don't I'm not sure I want to risk another one -
    what about the i950?? Anyone got any thoughts on this printer??

    Don't know a great deal about the Epson ones, 830, 915, 935 or 950. I'm not
    interested in being able to stick a CF card in the printer and it will get
    used 90% of the time for photos as I have an old Epson 760 that I use for
    draft stuff and text.

    Thanks in advance

    Geoff

    Geoff,

    Here's my take on it: Going strictly on my own personal experience, I'd say
    you've been unlucky with the Canon blocking up like that - My s800 has
    behaved in an exemplorary fashion ever since new, about 18 months ago. My
    previous 3 Epsons however, were all prone to regular blocking/banding
    problems. Run a google search for blocked inkjets, and guess which
    manufacturer hits the jackpot time after time..

    I'd go with the i950, haven't seen a bad review of it yet.

    Open for debate of course, since we all go on our own experiences..

    Rob.

    I've had i950 now for couple of days and it is just as good as reviewd by
    users.
    Prints from PS are just like photos, i can't see any difference- these are
    way better than lab ones.
    i950 was MacWorld's winner some time ago.
