Heath... You should post this question on Digital BW because they swear there are never any problems with this ink!!! But seriously... it probably is the printer... check your paper thickness adjustment is appropriate, nozzle checks are OK, alignment is good (on the paper you are printing on). If that doesn't work, test the feeding capabilities by printing a 20" iameg and that it is printing as 20" or very close. Check the airlines into the CIS are OK and have ink!!! Try (all the above) with a different paper if that don't work. Try (all the above) with Epson OEM carts if that doesn't work. If you still get banding, return the printer! To qualify all of that... the 1160 should _not_ microband...
