I'm in a Pro-100 vs. Pro-10 quandary.

I've just thrown my last Epson in the trash, a pigment ink R1880. I'm tired of banding from clogged heads and an going to a Canon printer.

P-100 = Cheaper to buy, dye inks for less clogging
P-10 = Pigment inks for longevity and cheaper ink

I've got a ton of Epson paper I'd like to use, mostly luster and a bit of gloss. It should work with the p-10 but will it work with the P-100? Will the P-10 nozzles clog that much more than the P-100? Either should be better than the Epson, correct?

It kills me that I just missed the P-10 sale, which ended in November.....

I should probably buy the P-100 for $89 and watch the price of the 10 but the $200 worth of paper and print longevity is a factor.

I've got a P-100 and had the same problem - left over Epson paper. It works perfectly with this printer. As far as nozzle clogging, I haven't had it long enough to tell but reports I've read on various web sites say that clogging isn't a major issue. One guy reported 6 mos. between prints and no clogs. That would never happen with an Epson.

I just received my new Pro-100 and also have a ton of Epson Lustre and Epson Enhanced Matte (with profiles for the Epson Photo 2200).

What profiles do you use when printing to Epson paper?

thx

The way I read the ads was that the printer comes with a set of "introductory container's" which sounds like they aren't the larger ink tanks that cost $100+ per set - for those of you who bought the 100 how big were ink container's you received?

No difference in first and subsequent cartridges as far as I could see.

My Epson R3000 just sat all winter without being used. Indoor relative humidity as low as 5%. When it's 10 below zero, warming the air dries it out badly. I fired it up 2 weeks ago and had one very minor clog. Once cleaning cycle and it's good as new. Granted, my R800 would have been bone dry if it were still living. A friend has Epson's R3880 and he lets it sit for a month at a time with no problems.
