How can I test halftones reproduced on a digital press?

Halftone Reproduction

Be cautious trying to print halftones (pictures) in the text of a book that is being printed on a digital printing press. The quality is just not there yet, (no matter what the salesman says).

*To see side-by-side comparisons, pick up a copy of "Publishing Basics - A Guide for the Small Press and Independent Self-Publisher." This is a great guide for short run book printers, too.
