Hi,
We're ready to purchase a new printer and we're wondering if anyone in this forum can give us feedback on which printer to purchase, a Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-2100 or the Epson SureColor P6000. We're artists and sometimes use the printer daily and other times it could sit. Please let us know your thoughts. Many, many thanks.

For infrequent use I would want Canon image PROGRAF Pro-2100, but then that’s me..
Also please don’t post the same information request in two places, it tends to confuse us..

I don't think there is any reliable information available which printer model can take a longer idle cycle than another printer model, that should not be the main criteria to select one or the other printer . You rather should estabilish some practice to do some maintenance prints on a regular base - that could be a small image and a nozzle check - once a week and and going from there with the nozzle check if you need to shorten or extend that cycle. That would keep your printer ready when you need it - without going through cleaning cycles at that time.

You may find printer reviews by Keith Cooper

or on luminous-landscape

Your models of interest or very similar printers - e.g. with a just different size - are most likely covered and should give you additional information which printer model would suit your requirements better
