Print termination means that no professional print shop will touch the printer for overnight unattended print jobs. HP is hurting themselves badly. I wonder if the Z6100 has this "feature" as well?
Yes, we're guinea pigs of a sort but the $1,000 rebate and free paper helped me deal with that.
Still, its the most versatile printer I've used. Every printer I've encountered, Epson, Canon and HP, have quirks that are annoying and at times aggravating. We seem to optimize around the quirks/limitations we can live with. Right now, for me, the HP Z3100 is my best choice. There's no single printer that we can't find fault with at this time.
Exactly! The first six months I owned my Epson 7600 it drove me crazy with poor color fidelity, limited gamut and the obnoxious matte/photo black issue. Once I got Bill Atkinson's profiles my results were much better, but the printer still had its quirks. The Z3100 isn't perfect, but the built-in capacity to profile 3rd party papers (at least to my
satisfaction), the effortless black switching and absolutely fabulous black & white prints make it the best printer out there for my needs, and likely for the needs of most devoted amateurs & fine art printers.
