As far as I can tell, it's just that the 820 is ever so slightly slower, has a 32KB buffer instead of a 256KB buffer, doesn't accept roll paper, and is rated for 16,000 cycles instead of 25,000. So, my question is, does this justify paying $200 more for the 890? How important is the buffer size? Just wondering, cause I'm thinking of entering the photo printing realm with the 820.
