If this is true then it reflects extremely bad on both Epson and Wilhelm! If the ink is the same as in previous printers - such as the 1200 - then they have lied about the changes in formulation required to get the extended life - and Wilhelm's tests, which show a difference between new inks and the previous generation, are unreliable at best! I suspect that the information that Byte were given was false but, if not, then all the longevity claims for the x7x series, from whatever source, are highly suspect. -- Kennedy Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed; A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.
