I trust that nobody's going to take my opinions on one Epson vs. some other Epson all that seriously... I'm quite content with my 1160, but there's no doubt in my mind, the highlights are more grainy than those that come off my trusty 700. The Archiva inks sound awesome -- my only hesitation is this business of the fancy chemistry (dilution, surfactants, etc.) I'd feel more comfortable buying an ink that was all ready-to-go on my Epson. I've got an unopened Generations cartridge (one color, one black) to pop into the 1160 when this Epson cart runs out. Won't be long now... Kinda nervous about it, actually... rafe b. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
