I agree, I have looked at a lot of printers, now have an 1160. The only output I've seen better is the 1270 I had previously. All other 4/6 color printers are slightly to lots worse than the 1160, including the HP970, Canon BJ8200, older epsons, etc. As for the future of "3color" remember our eyes have only 3 color sensors to work with.
