[QUOTE=zsr;2141489]I saw that thread and the pictures there. But it only made me decide with Epson. In the pictures I can see clearly the red-shift in color for Canon, this is a problem Canon is dragging on for years. If you were to print human faces, the problem will become obvious.
Plus that Canon is poor with color graduations so I want to try the 6 ink system. Epson is the only A4 printer with 6 inks that also prints CDs.
Thanks for the info about speed.[/QUOTE]
I disagree about color matching. With proper calibration and color profile setup, the Canon is better with a 3-color setup than the Epson 5-color. Color shifts are easy to correct with a good driver. The Epson is also much more difficult to set up, and the disc printing driver does not seem to respond to manual driver color settings much, if at all. If you’re planning to use OOTB settings, neither is correct. The test discs I posted are all done with OOTB settings for the most part. The only thing I really liked about the Epson was the black, though again the Canon comes close with manual settings. You might also consider the Canon Pro series printers, although I cannot speak to their relative speed for discs. The IP4500 is doing bi-directional printing on discs, the Epson is mono-directional.
Also note that the Epson inks are much more prone to smears.
