Ran some test 4x6 prints through my HP B9180 and find that the only acceptable sharpening level is off - all others are much too aggressive. Anyone else seeing this ?

Don't know about your printing setup but I just tried a print here with print sharpening set to standard, printing about 10x8 on enhanced matte on Epson R2400 and it looks about spot on. Sharp but with no halo.

All I did to the shot was a little capture sharpening and no more. If you do sharpening beyond this I could see that the print sharpening could take it over the top.

I do my normal sharpening in NX then use Nik Define 2.0 to do my output sharpening for print and the results are great.

This was a RAW file opened in LR2 with default sharpening so if anything it was probably a bit soft prior to printing. I did uncheck the Print Resolution box which I think means the 9180 will print at maximum resolution.
