Wow:
I just realized that despite not paying for the privilege of reading Luminous Landscape News, I can still post to the Forums!!

Just wanted to add my 2 cents about what a great printer HP made in the Z. The one thing that neither Mark or the "shadow" have noted about the printer is the algorithm HP uses to lay down the ink. It uses about 2X the Lt Gray ink and any other color in their undercolor removal scheme. This results in a much more neutral looking print, less prone to non-linear fading and much less metamerism. I know the older Epson printers used about 2X the Lt Magenta & Lt Cyan inks, which resulted in greater print to print inconsistencies and a non-linear fade result.

Add me to the list of those who would eagerly jump at the opportunity for a Z3300.

Itís been a long time now since all the speculation about HP manufacturing a new printer.  Itís a very interesting read, considering that now HP has indeed continued to stay in the fine art printing market with the advent of the Z6 and Z9+ printers.

Interesting to see how how many viewed HP as being out of the game.

Kudos to HP for continuing the Z Series printer line.  Time will tell, again how the Z9 stacks up against the Z3200.  At the time, I had a very good idea that HP would be bringing the Z9 out, but just couldnít say.

Iím hoping that the Z9+ will prove to be as good if not better that the Z3200.

Bringing this to the forefront again, simply as a historical record of where we stodd on this issue in light of the new development of HPís Z series printer offerings.
