But, given the scale of colour change in the x7x black, any of those hues would be an improvement. This black ink has gone much more brown than even the most sepia of prints I have ever seen. I notice that Bob hasn't put these micrographs on his web page, only the ones showing the colour ink (or at least I didn't find them), but I am starting to consider this to be a much more important colour change than the cyan ink fading - although it is possible that Epson have tried to use a black dye that faded at the same rate as the other inks. -- Kennedy Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed; A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.
