Here in the states it is 1400 and r2000, the 2000 is a much better printer due to the dx5 head and the 8 channels.. they are the same as far as conversion to dtg.. im not sure we are talking about the same printers as you have the 1400 costing more than the better r2000!! the ultimate printer IMHO is the epson 2880 (which is more expensive) also with the 8 channel dx5 head,it has a reset all to full ratf chip and produces better prints IMHO (i have built all the epson desktop models for my personal use starting late 2009 and have a good amount of knowlege regarding the desktops).. the 2000 also has a different reset chip for the inks you reset each chip/per cart last i checked and this is time consuming and frequent when printing in any qaunity... search around and get other opinions.. I would start with a cheap printer and once your successful and have an understanding of the build go to the best model.. the reason i say this is there are frequent acidents that can destroy the printer/electronics when just learning or starting out on your build/I'm going to buy a printer to build a dtg. I've reading a lot of threads at the forum , but I still have a doubt, here in Brasil we have a T1410 and the R2000 options to A3 size and white ink, which one is better? Which is easier to make?
The T1410 is about US$ 900 and the R 2000 US$ 620.( both new ones).
