I have a Brother and it is great. We do not use it daily, but it always starts up and is self cleaning whenever needed. Limitations: no dark garments, image size limited to 14x16, not high clearance, slower than what I would like for production of quantities, and not cost effective. For spot colors, we usually go traditional if we have 100 shirts. We do have color matching issues, but that could be a function of software (Corel).
Excellent resolution, reliable, support from vendor has been excellent. Has a setting that will allow for printing over zippers. I am waiting for their machine that will print on blacks.... especially without the pre-treatments. (I do not like the feel of pre-treated garments). Also, drivers are very effective at increasing and decreasing ink output.
