Bob, Had a chance to use the Epson Semi Gloss with the Cones color inks this week. I am very pleased, overall. This is a much more rugged finish than the Conetech Glossy. A good bit more 'snap' to the image as well. The blacks lay down darker than on any other paper I have tried (13 L , as opposed to 20-22 L, Lab measurement). I see the 'reflections' you refer to and will be developing a CMYK profile with judicious ink limits to see if this can be overcome. Thanks again, Mark K.
