Again, I seem to be the only one slamming MIS quad ink. The lighter inks of the 4 color quad set change to brown within weeks unless dark stored. With a six color printer you have 2 more light inks to do just the same, that's speculation on my part since I'm using a 3000. So far the Lysonic quad set has remained unchanged in a print taped to an west facing window for almost 2 months. Unfortunately I love the "look" of the MIS ink set, and they seem to stop shifting after the initial move, but who knows? Certainly MIS is the accepted quad inkset, and very few people have complained.
