    I use the best: Efi ColorProof XF and Caldera, I prefer Caldera for stability and accuracy, you could buy CostView to manage your business very easy

    i wish people would state WHY the prefer wich rip.... that would help more instead of "efi ist the best"--

    i dove pretty deep into EFI XF and it gets me very good proofing results..
    the dynamic wedge is something i think is really superior.
    are there others that have that, too? so i can print a 10% size of a job with its colors in a wedge and then read the wedge and optimize the colors for this job.. excelent!
    the pantone emulation is poor.

    i tried colorgate, too.. i didnt like the proofing funktion so far. not so tweekable.
    i liked the easy production mode tho and RGB profiling option.

    i would like to check onyx, too

    I'm using agfa colorproof instead of agfa apogee x 7

    In the past i've used efi but agfa colorproof is more integrated with workflow

    My three favorites are ...
    Onyx - for best production experience
    Colorgate - for best additional features
    Caldera - for fastest ripping and running on a mac ;)

    aha
    I like your Idea , bcz not everyone have experience on all rip software.
    Like me just try photoprint , colorgate , efi, onyx, Maintop, posterjet.
    maybe just 10% of all rip software in the world
    like someone said " you never know taste if you don't eat "

    For offset proofing Agfa Apogee. For digital printing sign/screen shops - Digital Factory from Cadlink looks awesome. I like the variety that hot folders open up to a workflow. The Apogee Rip is quite versatile as far as being for offset printing. It produces great photo prints on our Epson 7600 better than the Epson Postscript Rip we find anyway on Lustre, other stocks not so.

    Caldera

    Best rip on MAC is caldera. Easy to get used to and much faster printing and ripping than other large format rips i have used. eg. onyx, wasatch

    1. ONYX is the best
    2. Agfa Apogee

    and there is Pijannto RIP which is very light and easy to use.

    I like a harlequin rip - why - because I've used them for years and on very different devices. Example: I boughtr some badly made chinese encad novajet 750 copies. They came with some chinese rip and printed badly. As soon as I hooked them up to a harlequin clean bright prints resulted off standard profiles. You can hook up just about any old imagesetter or printer you lay your fingers on to a harlequin and end up with superior results.

    I also like versarip, simple, effective, easy to train people to use. A bit slow sometimes

    I use VersaWorks. Only because it comes with my Roland printer... but I'm looking for a better one. VersaWorks is slow.
