Coming from a Canon i9900, that served me well for several years I decided to take a chance on a newly released model. Engineer by profession, amatuer photographer by choice (enjoy merging the two). This printer certainly touches on the pro-ranks. This is no 15 pound overly plastic model that shakes and rattles with every print head return. Stout and substantial and monolithic in appearance when closed up. To me, straight forward to setup even on my home network, "without a hitch." My first print, 13x19, the rotunda at Alexander Hamilton Customs House in NYC, taken with a Leica D-Lux 5, set to automatic, no flash, simple jpeg, minimally processed with Photoshop CS5 (my survey camera), Staples glossy photo paper (all I had at that time in that size). The results, wow... detail, depth, color accuracy. I was impressed especially at this price point.
Calumet was easy and quick, an A+ transaction. I will use them again.
One caution... Do not expect to easily carry the box up the stairs alone. I brought mine down the stairs and my back is still feeling it. Big box ~75 lbs.
Pros: Sharp Tone/Color, Easy Computer Connectivity, Beautiful Colors/Contrast, low standby power consumption at 1.6 watts., closes up tight
Cons: big and heavy deal with it!
