    Hi All.

    I have just bought a decent A3+ Photo printer for myself to use to print my photos, my first instinct is to plug it into my MacBook Pro using a decent belkin USB cable to obtain the maximum possible quality and to ensure that the whole image is transferred perfectly.

    However, I then began to wonder if there will actually be any quality difference between a high quality USB cable and printing via my one of my airport express base stations - I have two of them, one with my everyday printer and the other is empty.

    If I do use it over airport, will there be a quality loss, or will it not be able to send all of the details / settings to the printer?

    Despite the impression that this thread gives, I do know what I am doing and am not just talking about printing some 'holiday shots'. I am talking about printing proper photos at the highest possible quality.

    What do you think?

    Regards and Happy Christmas!

    No, it all depends on the printer.

    I routinely printed to my Epson wirelessly with no loss of quality (my Kodak won't do it). No worry.
