Michael's comment is absolutely spot on. Speaking from the perspective of the ordinary user, I'm thrilled and amazed at the output from my printer. I bought a 640 as a general purpose printer for printing documents, web pages, etc. I had no idea it could be used for photographic work. Since then, I've sold the 640 and bought a 740. I joined this list because it discussed Epson printers - I don't care about Somerset Lysonics, Velvet Concordes or Boeing 747 rags! Cartridge refilling, printer interfaces or any other item relating to the printer is what I want to know about. The only time I've noticed fading is if I deliberately put the picture in the sun to see what happens. Pictures inside in frames don't seem to fade at all. Neither do pictures pinned to my wall at work. I think they (Epson) have done a great job.

Jerry and Daniel, Since we are all just giving our opinions, let me give mine. I think you guys are are mislead on this issue because you spend your time in forums like this one. It is my opinion, that forums like this do not represent the typical users out there. We see the energy going into the development of archival inks/papers by 3rd party suppliers like Lyson and MIS. But seriously, compared to Epson, these are small time players. Just how much money do you really think they are losing by not as of yet offering an archival solution? I don't know what the figures are, but I'd bet the market share that these 3rd party suppliers of ink and paper have taken from Epson is teeny tiny. The average Epson user out there is not interested in trying 3rd party solutions. The average user is not trying to sell their prints. The average user is thrilled with the image quality. For the average user, the printers serve their purposes. We on this list, me included, want more of course. <major snip> - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
