Great results with calibration but uses up ink quickly

Once my monitor was calibrated (using a Spyder 3 Express) results using Epson Gloss & Matte 4-star or better paper produced really beautiful results. Haven't tried alternative papers yet but plan to do so at some point. The 'best print' setting prevent banding which is evident (but not wholly unacceptable) with the lower quality print settings (print settings are handled through LR 3.6 + the printer).

I'm really happy after using this printer for several months, it's working quite well more than twelve months after purchase (although my frequent use has been in the last three months).

I would rate this printer 5 stars except for its ink consumption which is on the high side. Will be investigating a continuous ink solution for 2012, but concerned over the possibility of clogging the print heads. No apparent clogging problems using the cartridge inks purchased separately (or the discount packs available from, e.g. Amazon).



Ink consumption is driving need to investigate continuous ink solution
