In determining what printer to buy, I feel it is not necessarily a Alps Electric MD-5000 on which is better but what is more appropriate for a persons needs, i. Color Printing--I Alps Electric MD-5000 it's important to understand the mechanism of color printing and why you get dithering and jaggies on some printers and why dye sublimation printers such as the Alps give you continuous tone or photographic quality prints. Color printing uses four separate pigments: This system is called CYMK. K stands for black.

Some low-end color inkjet printers save the cost of a black ink print head by using equal portions of magenta, yellow, and cyan to produce black. But the resulting black lacks density, which is why better personal printers include a print head for black ink. All color printers use tiny dots of those four inks to create various shades of color on the page. Lighter shades are created by leaving dots of unprinted white. Some printers, such as dye-sublimation, control the size of the dots and produce continuous-tone images that rival photography. But most printers create dots that are essentially the same size no matter how much of a particular color is needed.


For all shades beyond the eight that are produced by overlaying the primaries, the Alps Electric MD-5000 generates a varied pattern of differently colored dots. For example, the printer uses a combination of 1 magenta dot to Alps Electric MD-5000 of cyan to produce a deep purple. For most shades of color, the dots of ink are not printed on top of each other.
