In order to: 1. save money on inks, and 2. achieve archival output, I have ordered the (nomorecarts) cis from cone, with a profile for Epson hwm (still waiting because they are making new profiles due to a new yellow ink). Based on what I read in this thread list, I expect to cut my ink costs by a factor of about 6. But, it's the archival part I really want. I am still laughing about the response from the guy who said he wasn't interested in archival; he just told his clients they were in a subscription series.

The people screaming the loudest about how Epson is ripping us off (not so much on this list, but check out the printer forum on DPReview sometime) seem to have forgotten just how cheap prints are compared to going to a photo lab. Using your numbers, and being conservative with the amount of ink left after resetting, suppose one chooses to make 5 more prints after the color cart reads "empty." That's a savings of about 5 cents a print. Hardly worth getting bent out of shape about. ===== Bob Meyer Don't ask me why I sing this song, everything you think you know is wrong... http://www.meyerweb.net/epson __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
