Just found this interesting article over on DigitalDarkroom which is a comparitive look at the quality of "photo inkjet" printers vs. dye-sub printers.. These comparisons were done by "Nai-Chi Li": "For a long time, I wanted to see for myself how well does the best (consumer-grade) inkjet printer stack up against a dye-sub printer. I finally got the opportunity to do so. I have printed a high-resolution test image (3360x2240x24 bits) from these three photo printers: Epson 700, Epson 750, and the Alps MD-5000 dye-sub. Please come take a look at my comparison scans, and see if you agree with my observations"

All I can say is I still love my Stylus Photo 750.
