Hello,

Windows Vista supports 16-bit printing and higher if the printer has 16-bit drivers.

I think epson is treading water. It's not that the printers are bad - they're good - but in terms ink management and other software and hardware elements they are standing still.

I went from a 7600 to an hp z3100 and it's worlds apart in terms of ease of use: built in spectrometer, full reports on ink and paper usage, synchronization of profiles with the computer, all black inks all the time, no ink trays, no clogging, and cheaper ink.

The point is all the wide format printers make good prints, the difference is in the other stuff and epson is standing still.

Good review.

I have had 2 of these printers. Fantastic machines.

The one downside for us was that when printing onto canvas, the cutter could not be used as it is too close to the print head and the fibres from the canvas can cause the heads to block.

This is quite a design flaw in my opinion, but one that I believe they have fixed on the latest models in the range.
