We could be opening a can of worms here, have been looking at possibly buying a UV flat bed machine. Looking at the entry level ones with white ink eg Agfa, Fuji and Oce but nothing better than first hand info from an end user.
If anyone can offer some experiences that would be greatly appreciated.

most important step is to have a very clear picture on what you want from a UV printer

then i would set out the differences printer to printer
ill list things in order of importance

*support
*proven field service - don't be the first to own this printer in Australia
*reliability
*colour gamut and ink adhesion

*options ie. white,tables etc

*dedicated flatbed or hybrid etc
*max sheet size

*resolution Vs speed cant always have high in both fields unless you have big bucks

*price....im too poor to buy cheap things i know cost is a big thing to most customers but you can come unstuck with a cheap printer not being able to achieve all the tasks set out by you.

there are new printers out that are pretty good bang for your buck in the R2R+Flatbed hybrid
in the 1600 wide with handy production features that most do not

HP FB500 140K AUD
Durst OMEGA1 sub 200k AUD


a few i would steer well clear of

*rastek (dytona, flora, all previous names)
*agfa m series, annapurnas all the entry level agfas really
*grapos all forms and re badged versions
*anything new that looks too good to be true

i could go on all day sorry hope it helps
