RE: Epson 3800 vs 4800 - any advice?
Those warranties are nice to have. If I have the chance I'll print a positive on the 4800 using all inks and let you know what I find out. I suspect it will work just fine. Chris has been successfully printing colored positives on her R2400 for our solarplate endeavors, so that may be something to look into (although it will only print up to 13" wide).

Ouch. I'd hate to go backwards. The 2 main advantages to 4800 over the 3800 I've found is: 1) Higher capacity carts 2) The 4800 accepts roll media where the 3800 does not Neither of these things matter if I can't get reasonably comparable density out of either of them using black ink only though. Is the 3800 thought to be better using black ink only than the 4800? I'd look into a used 4000 as you recommend Camden, but I like having that Manufacturer Warranty in case there are problems.
