Skybum, many thanks for that info... I am weary about the Epson 'micro ceramic head' or whatever it is called. This is the third printer that I have has head clogging, two being the R800. (I cant remember the model of the first one.)
However, I am heartened to hear that you are getting 2 - 3 weeks and no nozzle blocks. I will look into the reviews for it.
As a point of interest, I have discovered that reading 'owner' reviews are more honest (when taken with a pinch of salt) then the magazine reviews....!! After all the R800 does produce outstanding results before the nozzles block - magazines don't have a printer/product long enough to 'shake it down'.
yeah my R800 eventually drove me nuts, non-stops clogging and it's so bad now that only one of those anticlog juice kits I think could fix it (or maybe the windex trick would work). My previous Photo 750 or whatever it was called was also clog prone, wasted a lot of ink, although that one always cleared in the end, but it still ate a lot of ink for nothing. But man my R800 I was sometimes going through 3/4 of an ink set to unclog it, just awful and it was soooo annoying that sometimes only one or two colors would have a clog and the damn thing would waste ALL inks during cleaning, no single color cleaning mode! It was wasting so much ink I figured the savings in ink loss might pay for the R3000 within a year hah (I looked around the net and I noticed people who had complained about older Epsons and ones without the teflon heads or whatever would mention no ink clogging problems with the R3000 and I saw enough people say that that I figured I'd give it a shot and trust the comments would hold for me too) and I'd be able to print larger prints (which I have to say it REALLY nice!) to boot.
But so far, my R3000 has been an entirely different story. Hopefully, it remains that way. Definitely a far more promising start than the R800, at the least.
