| p.1 #17 · Recommend me an Epson printer for fine art prints |
I have been creating prints with the 3880 for the past 3 yrs--superb color & B&W--right out of the box!!!
When the OEM inks ran low, I switched to 3rd party inks of known hi qual--inkjetcarts, Cone, Inkjetfly, InkRepublic. Check dpreview for more additional discussion. My $$$ savings is 80%--even more so now that Epson raided their cart prices. And the 3880 to $1215, before the present $300 rebate!
I'm presently using the 80ml carts from Cone--auto reset, easy fill and great prints. I use the Colormunki to profile all my OEM and 3rd party print profiles. With the Cone system you can run your Epson OEM carts in parallel, a convenience, especially in an emergency!
Clogging has not been a problem, even after a 2 week layoff--but I do make the effort to run a nozzle check weekly.
good luck irv weiner
Third party inks? I have been with Epson since the begiining of inkljets. Once I tried generic inks, i ran back to Epson in a hurry. it might be different now, but it would take quite a few convincing for me to try it again.
