I am just starting to put together a PC/scanner/printer for photo printing. I am just an amatuer but I like to have my print last long. I just ordered Epson photo 1200 but I am considering cancelling the order, becasue 1200 uses 6 color ink. I can wait a few months if new printers are due in short time. Any suggestions for other Epson printers like 900 (4 color) or I should stick with 1200 ? I am not professional and I can not afford another printer when it is available. Thanks for any comments. bj bahk - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
