Should also keep in mind there are all sorts of conventional plates, some cheap but very slow or simply unusable because of low sensitivity, others will give you better productivity but going almost the same price as digital ctp plates.

    Now we evaluate between Luscher and Basysprint, and If is safe to buy used or refurbished machines. We need to know which brand and model offer the best performance for service including the lesser downtime.
    It's not only downtime, you should also consider good quality service and spares availability, cost of ownership i.e. Between the two I would say a new Luescher has a lower failure rate.

    We have a hard time in getting unbiased user input, so we hope we'll get it in this forum
    Unbiased input is a rare commodity around here. Should rather ask the seller/dealer to take you to 2 -3 CTcP locations to visit.

    Why CTCP, man?
    The price of CTP plates are falling. In my opinion, the difference between CTP plates'price and traditional plates' price will be very small shortly, especially at current economy environment.

    Basically..it depends what u want to do finally. The Basys-Machines are Certified by
    Fogra for a 300lpi Output using 1500dpi Machine-Resolution etc.
    In case of Support u might decide for Basys...and as i read above, whats the problem changing a Lamp each 2000 hours? This is up to three month when the Machine is used 24hours...
    Finally u can get the Basys-Machines also with a real 2400dpi Output-Resolution (NO interpolation).
    Maybe u describe ur needs, then the decision for the right machine is easier.
    hi sir, im new here, just asking if the basysprint have a 1200 dpi.
    thanks you
