I had been noticeing a slight degradation in the nozzle check, but I had forgotten what the chick looked like when the printer was new. I convinced myself that everything was working fine, but I noticed a subtle degradation in the quality of my prints. Like you, I had convinced myself to buy a 900 (I like the 4-color, with the small dots), then my printer got a terrible clog. In the process of clearing the clog, I managed to get all the nozzles completely, truly clean. Like you, I was amazed at how good the prints looked. I have since printed out a nozzle check and stored it in a safe place to use as a reference for the future. I think the issues you face here, which are probably caused by a slow accumulation of debris in or on the nozzles--will be present no matter which printer you end up with. I also had to redo the printhead alignment. So check those two things. You may find that they improve your prints, although, at its best, the 800 is still no match for the newer printers.
