rafe b I'm not 100% sure but on a lot of products at least in the USA a company is required to support a product for 10 yrs after it is released. I'm not sure if it is still in effect or not though. I've always used the third party cartridges anyhow so no loss for me. I'll probably continue to sell the Epson line but like you I'll look else where for my own printer. I have an 870 model being delivered tomorrow 2/25/2000 but I've been told not to expect the 1270 and 875 till the 2nd week of March. For resale only. I ordered a BJC8500 a couple of weeks ago but still no sign of it. I've got a CIS system comming that should be here today I think and I've got 3 different kinds of ink to try in it just not sure which one to use, the Generation w/Plush paper or go with the MIS archival or MIS oem type. Any suggestions. Do the Archival inks print good without a lot of problems on the Epson papers or non archival papers?
