Choosing a photographic inkjet printer able to produce high-end A3+ printsis not an easy task even though the list of candidates is much more limited than for A4+ sizes. Nevertheless, as prices are steep, it’s worth avoiding errors. This makes the comparison done by our firends at photo-i the more interesting.
They oppose three impressive printing machines:
- Epson Stylus Photo R2400
- HP Photosmart pro B9180
- Canon Pixma pro 9500
I will not hide the conclusion, the HP B 9180 runs ahead for its excellent price, its auto-calibration, its ability to keep heads unclogged by auto-cleaning every 6 hours, its Ethernet connectivity (on top of the USB) and its photo quality very similar to the others (the differences really became small at this level).
