I'm seeking opinions from those of you who are in the color copier/color laser space. As I shop for a new color output device, I'm finding that each manufacturer uses a different process for getting color onto the paper.
The HP technology emulates the four-color separation process used in traditional film-based offset lithography. Being an old stick-in-the-mud, I find this very appealing.
Xerox uses a stochastic process, which eliminates the regular grid and rosette pattern of the screen-based method.
Ricoh uses something they call contone technology (maybe that should be capitalized; I'm not sure) that, under a lens, looks like the lines on a tv screen, like the old analog AP wire photo technology.
So here's the question: Am I just being a reactionary? Is one of these newer technologies actually a better way of doing things, only I'm just not getting it?
I don't want to make the wrong purchase decision here based on my own prejudices, so I'd appreciate input from others who have looked at this question.
