Sorry it has taken so long to get back with you, just realized that there was a message board. As for the VIM system. So far, we have been very pleased with the quality. We run plates for a Ryobi 2800, 3200, and our Komori 226II. VIMs tech support has been fantastic. We have really only had one problem and that has been with our Komori plates when were running heavy solids. After about 1000 sheet run we start to lose our solid. We have been working with them to get this resolved. Have spoken with other VIM users running the same plate and they are having great success. Im thinking a fountain issue. I'll keep you posted. As for the system, Im not disappointed in the purchase. If your looking for high res color plates, then you probably should take a close look and get some sample plates to make sure your happy. We do not us it for process but have seen some sample runs that would be sellable 99% of the time.
