I presume that you are looking at used equipment as the JV3 has been replaced by the JV33. Both printers are capable of doing an excellent job for you if you get a good unit. Printers of this size in good condition can be hard to locate so you may have limited choice. While the Seiko is more advanced in some regards (more of a racehorse) they can be problematic the older they get and the parts they use are less common than the Mimaki. The Mimaki uses the Espon 10,000 (DX4) head which is far more widely used and therefore easier to work on. If you would consider a Mutoh ValueJet 2606 I know of one for sale. Let me know if you would like further information - Chris@ags.com.au

jv3 250sp is a solid work horse...or more like a Clydesdale slow but steady ive found them hard to wear out. where it lacks in initial sqm per hour it makes up for that when you leave it printing when you leave at 5pm and come back in the morning and its still printing without fault.

seiko is much faster but lower res and cannot be trusted as much

plus the 100s is expensive to own as parts are very expensive and ink is also - which most of goes into the waste tank i know some sites that empty 2 buckets a week at about 4L each at 295-400 per liter...admittedly they are a big site that prints alot

plus ink cost.. mimaki on bulk which it loves is 150 per L printheads 1000-1200 rest of the parts are cheap - wiper blade 10

seiko - 295-400(pending supplier) printheads 2500-3000 - most parts are expensive wiper blade 100

i can get both printers you asked for at 30k each...and negotiable which is the better buy for you? do you math

seiko/Hp10k is in sydney hardly used 4 new heads
mimaki on bulk 6colour in melbourne

i could go on and on
