Best printer for professional 4x6 and 5x7 prints

Hi Everyone,

The situation: I need a professional quality printer with amazing print speeds.

Currently: I'm running 2 Canon Pro9500's and so far so good. However ink costs are ridiculous, over a $1000 a month. On average, I process 600 4x6/5x7 prints per month. My second concern is each printer takes an average of 3 minutes per 4x6, and 4.5 minutes per 5x7 print. For a growing photography business, I desperately need to make a change.

My Prospects: I've been researching the different professional printers and going over reviews but I'd like to hear some hands-on-reviews from people like me. Also I've decided to focus on printers that are roll compatible. Here is what I'm looking at thus far:

  • Epson Stylus Pro 4880

  • Epson Stylus Pro 4900

  • Canon iPF5100

The 3 of these printers have had excellent reviews with quality, black and white prints (my main focus), and speed.

Does anyone have experience with these printers? On average, what were your print times for 4x6 and 5x7 prints? How is the ink consumption on these printers?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

-Tyler
