1) Availability.  I don't know of anywhere near me that has one
2) Cost.  I can do A3 prints cheaper on my 1160
3) Detail.  I can get more information onto the paper with an inkjet than
with a minilab.  The printer isn't as limited in the range of values or
manipulations that are possible.
4) Control.  As others have mentioned, the inkjet allows me to decide how
I want the print to be.  Otherwise the technician at the lab decides.

Having said all that, archival quality on Crystal Archive would be nice.
 I don't have a CIS and pigmented inks.
