    Was considering the 2100 <2200 in US> then saw that the R1800 is coming out
    <already out?> in the UK, so trying to decide between the two.I'm looking
    for A3, maybe up to A3+ with archival inks for printing artwork and photos.
    Been Googling and getting confused!

    Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    Many thanks,

  2. I have had the R1800 just over a week now and I still keep being
    delighted by the results.

    I have printed on Glossy, silk, archival Matt and Watercolour (all at
    A3+ and the results in all cases have met or surpassed expectations.

    With some trepidation, after reading articles on printing BW images on
    inkjets, I printed some of my favourite buildings on the R1800, the
    results are simply stunning, so much so that I have embarked on
    printing a complete series of architectural photos that I have taken
    with my D70 with a view to framing and hanging in my Offices.

    I read that the 2100 will have a successor but the results I am
    getting from the R1800 now beg the question "what could I get that I
    am not getting now ..?"

    A good discussion of the differences at this link from a dealer that
    sells both ... scroll about half way down the page to the block "Q: How
    is the R1800 different than the 2200?" Sounds like you can't go wrong
    with either one ... they feel the 2200 is a bit better on matte and
    fine art paper and better printing black/white while the R1800 is
    faster, has longer projected print life and prints noticeably better
    with glossy papers, so it depends to some degree on what paper types
    you prefer.
