The Axis unit converts from Mac Ethernet to the printer's parallel port - but doesn't work with the C80 (confirmed by Epson tech support). Other than that, nope. But I've ordered a Belkin USB card ($25) that others have had success with. Let's see how that works. I'd bet (a little) money that the problem is with the FirewireDirect card. I don't think I'll be returning the C80. Right now, until the Belkin card arrives, I have the Axis driving the 1270 from the desktop, and the C80 running off the iBook. (The 1270 isn't an Axis-supported printer, but it's working.) > As to paper, I have not tried it out on the HP glossy yet but now I will. Please allow me to eat my words, without ketchup. I was judging by a little strip that printed before the system froze. Since then I made a full print (with the iBook) and let it dry. The blacks aren't black and the saturation is weak. You should probably save your money. There's another HP glossy, two-sided, that behaves differently (not good on the 1270, good on the 900). Haven't tried it yet, but I will. > have tried it on ....

Good. I have a box; will try it. Thanks, Maris. Chuck M Miller Studios, LLC - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
