re: RE: **Micro-Banding**

I agree with your assessment, Michael.  For most applications, clients won't 'see' the effects of 'micro-banding.'  Problems do arise with images scanned for reproduction, though.  The banding is magnified resulting in unusable photos.  I've had that problem with the 1160 which I purchased to replace a 900 with which the problem did not exist.

However, returning to the enlarged images on the Inkjetart web page, it is clear that all but the 2000P have a consistent pattern of 'microbanding' in them.  My question, which has yet to be answered is: is this normal for these printers or symptomatic of either transport or printhead problems?
