Thanks Robert and Neil,
After digesting your comments and seen the news from HP these last couple of days I reckon I'll hold fire a couple of months and maybe save up for one of the new Z printers !
Neil do you reckon the new HP technology will eventually trickle down to desktop size printers ?
I see HP melting the lines. The Photsmart team in the US make a huge effort towards simplifying procedures, writing code that turns tricks easily, with the goal of making printing easy yet pleasing. The large format team strive for accuracy and measurable hardware precision. At this time the true LFP divisions are sharing their stuff with the DJ (Z) and Photosmart actively involved in sharing as well. It is all becoming thankfully mixed , so all HP user will benifit. And yes I think some of the Z tech will blend to desktop and vice versa.
