Default Viper 2 positive reviews?

I'm thinking about buying a DTG and am leaning towards the Viper 2.

I've read a few of the bad reviews from people with various technical problems. (But from what I understand, many DTG printers are prone to issues like that so I don't know if these are more typical than they might be with other brands.)

So who out there in tshirtforumsland has a Viper 2? How long have you had it, and is it running well for you? I would love to hear from some of the current owners.

Would you buy this printer again based on your experience with it?

Tips, warnings, praise, advice?

If not, what would you get in the sub-20K price range?

from my experience with DTG i'd say stay away, stay well away.

i'd put my total loss after selling machine at less than 50% of what we paid for it, lost ink, repairs, ruined shirts etc at close to 20k.
dont even mention loss of goodwill due to the number of jobs that got screwed up due to machine breakdowns and how slow production was.
kornit and the new Epson SureColor F2000 are the only things i would recommend.
anything we cant screenprint i farm out to a business near us with a brother GT-3, they seem to have got maintenance down to a fine art, but its taken them a while.
but i repeat, stay away from the brand dtg. worst after sales service i have ever received on a dodgy machine.

I was also looking at the Viper 2. I would love to hear from more people that own the machine. So far what I have heard does not sound too good.
