I'm in the market for a 24" Large Format printer that I can use rool paper with.

I have been looking at the Epson 7880 - HP 130 - HP -Z2100

The HP looks good at 1500.00 $ But has been out for a while.

The Epson 7800 is real nice but I'm dont want to spend 1200.00 if
Print Head Strike happends and I have to have the repair tech come out.

The HP Designjet Z2100 Is nice but is it going to be replaced soon ?
I like this printer because you can replace the print heads.

I'll like to hear your comment on 24" Large Format Printer and print head strikes!

Many thanks for any help you can give me in selecting my new 24" printer.
