    No alignment issues. No finger prints on the glass. Quick to load. Less costly than a frame.
    Same here. I just printed a boatload of HABS contact prints yesterday with the thing, and it moved quickly and easily. The glass is heavy, and keeps things as tight as I need. Plus, the Print File proof printer is not very expensive. Its only limitation is size--it doesn't do much more than 8x10. Since I don't do anything more than that, it works great for me.
