Well, actually, Wilhelm has come forward to confirm some of the lousy life-predictions for Epson media. But they weren't as bad as some here claim, and surprisingly, they weren't that much worse than some supposedly "archival" inks costing much more. A few of us on this list have had reasonably good luck (longevity-wise) with Epson media; I'm among those. But I'm not exactly torture-testing my prints. rafe b. - Please turn off HTML mail features.
