Mike: You have completely missed the point. I consider the people who follow this list typical Epson users. As you read the posts you hear their pain. Even with thousands of users out there I would be hard pressed to find their reactions any different than ours. Many of us on this list are commercial user and we are constantly looking for equipment that will help us do our jobs faster, and cheaper. I started with HP printers long before Epson brought a photo quality printer to the market. I also paid $10,000 for the printer. It did the job I bought it for. I am now using both HP's and Epsons. The Epson printer do the job I want it to, but for a bit of forethought it could do a lot better. As for the price comparison of digital prints and photographic prints. 8x10 photo prints cost about $.45 to produce in the lab. If you are printing the inkjet prints yourself then you have to print the photo prints yourself to get a fair comparison. Yes we could use someone else's product, but why would we want to? Only by sticking with the product and constantly feeding Epson our wants and needs will we eventually get our point across. Jim Davis www.visual-artists.com - Please: Stay on topic.
