For colours, I guess the quality looks about the same as my old HP Photosmart.

But the pigment ink combined with Advance Photo Paper will produce water proof picture. In the case of HP dye-based photo printers (including B8330), the picture is only water resistant.

I used B9180 to print a b&w on matt canvas. It is stunning. Inspired me to start to do b&w photos. :p

i have only tried the satin matte paper and agree, both color and moreso black and whites are stunning just as you said. i'm currently looking for double-sided photo paper for this printer (b9180) any thoughts, ideas on where to find them or what brands?

Yes, HP's adv satin matte is quite good. i heard from dpreview that HP Professional satin will be even better. Pro Satin is thicker than Adv satin but i am not sure where to get a3+ size of pro satin. hp website has only much wider pro satin papers.

I know CP sells Hahnemuhle paper, while Pic & Pixel sells HP Hahnemuhle paper. Do you know of other sources of Hahnemuhle paper?
