Epson vs Brother, take 2

About two weeks ago, I compared the print outputs of Epson Stylus Photo 230 and Brother MFC-240C on plain paper. And I managed to print the same Carlson Twins picture on photo paper this time.

This was the result on plain paper. (As posted in previous entry.)
Colour print comparison

To be honest, I am surprised with the output quality on photo paper. The output on photo paper, even the Brother one, is simply amazing, a whole lot better than print on plain paper.

comparison photo follows...

This is the output comparison on photo paper.
Colour print comparison

The picture on the left is printed from Brother MFC-240C with photo quality setting. The picture on the right is printed from Epson R230, with Epson's photo paper setting. I think it is safe to say that the photo on the right looks brighter.

If you compared above picture on the left (photo paper) to the first picture one on the left (plain paper), the improvement is amazing in my opinion. Of course, Epson does a better job on printing photo. But the comparison is not fair in this case as I mentioned earlier. Brother MFC-240C uses only 4 colours while Epson is a 6-colour inkjet printer.

So the conclusion is simple: if you want good colour output... get a 6-colour inkjet printer and use photo paper.
