Hmmm, I dubious but I been wrong many times before. If I get a chance I
research that number but a t anyrate XP Pro will gobble up all the memory
you can give it, at least within the limits of today's mother boards.

The 2200 will output at 2880 but I beleive the droplet size is maxed out at
that ppi, however the dropplets are still very tiny and with seven colors
the ouptut is very smooth. On the other hand there have been some reports
with problems with the Ultrachrome inks on certain paper surfaces. The
maximum print size is a full bleed 13x19 and a new 2200 is less expensive
than a new 2000.

That sounds like inkjetmall.com (Piezography by Jon Cone). Nice products,
especially the new Piezo inksets but you may need to use the Image Print 5
RIP with the 2200 which is quite expensive, $500 or so but supposedly it is
a very nice product. The Piezo prints can be very beautiful, I prefer the
Selenium toned inks. After sitting on the fence for a long time I'll be
purchasing the Piezography driver for my 1160 in a few days but I'll use the
MIS FS N inks to begin with until I verify that my printer functions well
with their driver. Currently I use the MIS VM inkset for quadtone printing
using the Epson driver. Originally I didn't start using inkjet printers to
make prints but was more interested in making digital negatives but as a
result I found myself being forced to learn the nuainces of Photo Shop and
inkjet printing before achieving results I liked. So be patient.
Unfortunately there aren't always clear cut answers. Rather than be a
pioneer I prefer to let others blaze the trail, I just follow the dead
Mike Kravit can probably tell you much more than I as he has really been
through the digital inkjet wars and has probably forgotten more than I know.
Perhaps he will chime in.
