You don't hear about it much here. Which model are you referring to? Pigment ink?

For inkjet, the favorite here is Epson, who also has large format capability, pigment ink, & capability for continuous ink setup.

I too was looking at the Brother printer & dicided to purchase one & try it out. I bought the
MFC-6490CW, it scans & prints up to 11"X17". It also has individual ink cartriges & has the option of high yield ink cartriges. I did a quick test yesterday on opaque paper & it did good, the ink did not run & the color was acceptable. Right after I printed it I applied it to a shirt with an iron & thru it the washer, it had minimal fading & held up good. I'm not sure if the ink is pigment ink but it did not smear on photo paper when I put water on it.
