My first and limited results using OEM inks on an old PS image file, and a couple of others, is very promising. Comparing prints with the 1200 shows a minor difference in subtle shadings. If I didn't have the 1200 to compare to, I would be totally happy with the 1160. My only complaint so far is that I can't get the darned thing to print faster. I am comparing "no bidirectional printing" on both machines. I've tried the 1160 on a 450mhz PIII with 256meg Ram and oodles of HD space to a 400mhz AMD with 64mhz machine and only see marginal increases in speed. I think that sooner or later this can be remedied. Otherwise, I'm happy as a lark with it. I am using Generation inks in the 1200 at present, and plan to use the 1520 cartridges with perhaps the fotonics or Luminos Silver inks when I get WiziWYG somewhat mastered. All I need is time and MONEY! Have a Happy Holiday Season, bob snow - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
