Some time has passed since Epson came up with the widely acclaimed Ultrachome 7600 and 9600 printers. Are these two still the best options for wide format printing? Does someone know if there is a replacement model in the air or if it is still time to buy one? I had followed some discussions on the HP Designjet 130 which uses archival dye inks. Some swear by it, but a friend of mine who I pushed into purchasing one is very disappointed with the clunky paper load, marks of wheels on glossy paper, although he admits that it is a good value for the money. There had been mentions also of third parties archival dye inks for the 7600/9600. Any new experience that you wish to share? Thanks!
