I believe it is the one on >Photoshop and the 900 printer that goes into more detail. >Regards, My first batch of Archiva was at 1:6 dilution. Second batch was at 1:9. Neither batch received very good agitation, and that may be part of the problem. I noticed a lot of those "frazzled" nozzle- checks that John N. or someone else described. All bands are there, but a number of them are a bit fuzzy. I don't agree that the 1160 prints "light" -- that's not what I've observed, at least not with the Epson driver and Epson inks. I *have* observed that it's a thirsty little bugger. I barely get 20-25 8x10" sheets from a pair of carts, and the black and color carts always "go" at the same time. The carts are a lot more expensive than the ones on my 700, though they're no bigger. This works out to $1.75 a page for ink on the 1160, as compared to about $0.70 on my 700.
