Jon, It's a pleasure when I read something about which I agree 100% Both your take on Epson introducing new products (which I've already posted about) and on the obsolete nonsense. That term is so grossly overused it's rediculous. I drive would imaging business from a 3.5 year old, 133 mhz Pent with 128MB of ram and 11 Gigs of disk. I would dearly love a new and faster machine. But the truth is that at this time, I don't need one. You can't even buy a machine like my PC. It's probably not even worth $25. But it produces prints that generate income and satisfy clients. So, it's out of date. You'd be a fool to spend today what I spent on it 3.5 years ago. But it's not obsolete. Likewise, my EX and 3000 are not obsolete. They still produce prints that satisfy the end customer. Remember, when I bought my EX, the standard of comparison was a photographic print from a traditional lab. It compared well to that then, it still does today. I'll probably end up buying a 1270 because I want to sell prints directly from my printers without having to go the refill route. But I think I'll wait a little until I get an idea of whether Epson plans on upgrading the 3000 or not. --- Mr645@aol.com wrote: > I think we should all write letters to Epson and tell them to stop designing > newer, better printers.
