As you know the 1520 and 3000 have the same printhead. and image output. I have not heard of other folks flatly saying the 1520 bands so bad I can't use it? I only used the original set of Epson cartridges that came with the 1520. By the time I bought my first 1520 I had learned how to vacuum refill using the 600"s I had before, Thank God I saved $1,000's with my refilling. I posted before that I get no banding at all because my refills weigh about 10 % to 15 % more than the Epson filled cartridges. I actaually used an Epson cartridge and recorded the factory weight and my refilled weight so is "real data" I generated. When I run these "mega filled" cartridge I never get any spilling or dripping, I just run 1 or maybe 2 clean cycles and I run till the ink out light forces me to change. So I just wanted to set things straight here are you guys using those Epson cartridges really getting banding so much it is a problem? If this is the case then vacuum refilling is a method the consider as in my case i just do not get banding due to the higher ink refill charge. Would you new 1200 owners share you experiances with us are you getting the same or less banding with you new printer then you did with your old Epson printers? I have 2 1520's ( bought new) and I am going to buy 2 more they work great for me and with the same image as the Epson 3000 I see no reason to not us them. The bottom line is : When you are looking at a 13 x 19 or larger photo ( from 3 to 4 feet away as you normally would) I do not believe you can tell the difference bewteen a 1200 and 3000 or 1520 output. One thing for sure your customers will not be able to tell them apart!! For smaller photo that you hold close up in your hand I will concede that the 1200 may have the edge. but not for the big images TomCat - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
