Same experience with new Epson 3540 printer

I just purchased n Epson Workforce 3540 printer to replace a HP 5510 all in one. The draft mode on all 3 of my older HP's and 2 Canons was nearly as good as normal or best quality, just with lighter black (less ink used). HP draft and Canon draft was good enough to send as finished letters, not the Epson.

Epson 3540 draft quality is jagged/stair stepped as you said. It did remind me of an impact printer output. Very disappointing for an otherwise great printer. Wish there was some work around but I guess I'll be investigating 3rd party inks. Really is a great printer other than the poor draft mode.
