Default looking for suggestions for a good inkjet printer for heat transfers

hello I'm looking for any suggestions on a good wide format inkjet printer which I can do sublimation on for heat transfers. I was looking into Canon, Epson and HP. All suggestions are welcome thank you in advance.

Is there a reason you are looking for an inkjet to do sublimation with? I was doing a bit of research into this lately and what I kept hearing was that inkjets that are converted for sublimation are not as reliable (clogs, runs, etc.) as a printer that was set up specifically for sublimation. This may cause more headaches than the money you save.

I personally just got a Sawgrass Virtuoso V800 to do my sublimation. Haven't tried it yet, but the reviews were similar to the Ricoma and it was cheaper. It was part of a complete business package from HeatPressNation.com and although I haven't used it yet [still setting my shop up] I have seen it run at the ISS in Atlantic City and was pleased with the result.

Check out the Epson wide format printers. We use them every day for all over sublimation t-shirt printing They are workhorses and Epson has a full line of inks and paper to back it up.
