i bought my 5000 60 inch in 2010. I´m very satisfied with this lfp. It´s very fast in printing. But i changed the ink from UV to DYE.
The advantage of the UV-ink is the durability when the sun shines directly on your pictures. But the colors are somehow pale.
The DYE-inks are very brighter.
If you want to print outdoor-banner or such like this, you need to laminate your print and seal the corners. These inks aren´t water resistant.
The printing material and the laminate is more expensive than the one for solvent or latex.
For outdoor prints it´s better you decide to buy either eco- / solvent- or latexprinter.
