I'm finally looking at buying a new photo printer that gives me the ability to expand back into b&w photography. Currently have a Canon i9900 which does a beautiful job making color prints when the right paper is used. Being a Canon user I'd love to be able to wait for the 9500 to come out but don't have that luxury. As a result I've been looking at the R2400 or B9180. I did get some very nice print samples from HP and have to say the quality looks excellent. Still, I'm torn between the 2 in that the Epson has greater ICC profile support at most of the quality paper manufacturers due to its being on the market longer. Ink cost per ml would actually be cheaper on the R2400 as I've figured it based on the prices from the photo supply business I use(BHphoto) so that isn't much of a concern to me. I'm guessing it comes down to quality. Even though I'd love to have a ProGraph, 13inch is the size I can swing at the time. Also, I do have to say that the B9180 coming with a built in print server that would allow it to be hooked into my home network does have an appeal even though it would only be used with my G5 tower and not my laptop. I have also heard that tonality wise, the Epson has a better tonal range in b&w than the HP but the difference is slight. Long winded spiel to get to the question which is, given the pretty much even print quality, which printer would you select?
