Ha - sounds like mine !!
I spend too much time replacing differnet parts- but just like you: I can´t see
the VERY improvement when getting a newer model.
Everytime the machines strikes I got some spareparts and then I´ll have to keep it running - for economical
What matters: If you look close (not too close !!) you see the differences - but as long as customers are
satisfied with the results - let it go !!
PS: I go for 600 dpi also - but it makes this resolution onla in black !

Yes it has that too, but I always run it at 600dpi.

Difference vs what? Vs the newer 12+ colors 2400+ dpi printers like Z3100?
I think that most people don't care if they can see the dots when get close up on large
So I would rather say that it was a good audience ;)
The few clients I have printed for have been very happy with the results too :)
I think the output from the Novajet is good. It's old, I got it for free and spent $18 on
new bushings for it (and a couple of hours replacing them), spent a few hundred $s on ink
and paper etc from a retired Novajet user, and now I can print good 60" prints "for free"
on a machine I would never had the money to buy if it was one of the newer ones.
Actually, I could even get $1500 for it if I buy a new Z2100 or Z3100, which is a bit
tempting. But anyway I just have to use up all the wide paper rolls and ink first,
because the biggest Z is only 44" wide...
