The BN20 is slow as hell, great desktop machine with small footprint and excellent quality of print. However, its slow. Really slow. Great for odd jobs and the like. If you already have a market and plan on printing loads, go for the larger machine. I only bought mine as it was second hand from my dealer (with a brand new printhead) and I onl;y do odd jobs on it currently. If I was printing a lot more, I would upgrade in a heartbeat.

Im off to sign and digital this year to look into just that :)

SG-300 all day. Not even a question. It's MUCH MUCH MUCH faster and also easier to use due to open design.
