BW printing choice - ipf5100 or Epson Pro 4900 or ipf6300...?
Dec 4, 2011

Hello everybody,

I can't resist rebates any more - Both Canon and Epson have great rebates and I just have to have a new printer (old HP B9180 has to go now).

If you have any working (that is - printing) experience with the current offering form Canon and Epson - specifically ipf5100, ipf6300 and Epson Pro 4900 or 3880 - which one would you recommend? I tend to print BW, but I do appreciable occasional color printout too

Is 24 inch worth the extra $600 (price difference between ipf5100 and ipf6300)?

Thank you for your opinions and advice!
