Speaking for myself... because I'm a control freak.
I like having complete control of the print. If it's
not right, I can do it again. The cost is low enough
to allow that.
I have used Lightjet (Cymbolics CS-5000) to make some
very large prints on occasion, or when a client
specifically requests archival output.
I've been meaning to give one of the Fuji Pictography
machines a try, but never got around to it.
