      great printer very solid

      I purchased this printer for my home. Upon first glance, this printer seemed amazingly well built with a modern design, albeit a bit of a space hog. I had hoped for the best with this puppy since it was the most expensive piece of printing equipement besides our HP plotter.
      Anywhooo, as the puppy has grown out of its early stages of life, I have grown increasingly frustrated with it. For one, I don't understand why, but the dpi resolution just does not compare to other ink jets on the market. Even at the highest quality setting and on premium paper, images appear muddied and bereft of any vividness. I've seen better quality from printers a third of its price. Secondly, this printer can not do borderless prints, which is FINE. I can deal with that; however, I can not tolerate the printer being unable to print less than 3/4 of an inch near the left margin. What the heck is going on here? No matter what software I'm using, Photoshop, Dell Picture Studio, it becomes tremendoulsy painful to accurately center a picture on a page; in fact, if you don't adjust the printer settings carefully, the printer will willy nilly print straight off the right side of a page as if it suddenly wishes to become like its borderless Epson cousin.
      I would expect a printer to recognize the paper edges and halt printing if the paper isn't there. Nope, that's not the case here, it will just dump ink inside the machine to soak deep within. I thought this was a driver problem at first and I even upgraded the firmware and drivers; result: same [stuff], different day.... in conclusion, it's a very solid printer, so ....
