I am in the UK and have been monitoring used print washers on ebay. They seem to go for an awfully high amount (usually well over £100). I have therefore decided to buy a new one rather than pay almost new prices with no guarantees or warranty. I need a 12x16.
I have narrowed it down to a few models:
Nova eco 5 slot £249
Nova academy £389 (probably too expensive)
Nova washmaster (5 slots) £259
Paterson major (12 slots) £149
My question is that I am tempted by the Paterson as it is not only the cheapest by a significant margin, but also holds 12 prints at a time which is a lot more than many of the others. Is it worth getting the Paterson at this price or would it be better and spend a bit more for a Nova or Silverprint model? What are you paying for with the more expensive models?
Thanks in advance for any advice/comments.
