I'm stuck deciding between these two. Looking to spend about $100 to $120, and I imagine I can find both of these for that price range. So, the difference comes down to:
4 ink (C80) vs. 6
180 nozzle monochrome head vs. 48
DuraBrite ink (pigment) vs. LightFast photo ink
8.26x10.76" printing vs. borderless

The main use, however, will be for printing papers, websites, etc. Thus I am leaning towards the C80, as it appears to have advantages for photos to offset every one of the 820's advantages. The 180 nozzle monochrome head is particularly appealing, as are the pigment based inks. However, borderless printing would be nice, as would 6 ink printing.

Has anyone compared the two directly? I've heard people say that the 6-ink process makes all the difference; but then again, others say they can't tell the difference. Help!

Thanks,
Ari
