Epson Stylus Photo 2200

Pros: The print quality was ok for it's period. I have not encontered any fading on any of my prints, BUT....
Cons:
My first 2200 went up in smoke, literally, after about 2.5 years of service. Then I bought a used one, which promised further service. Unfortunately it just lost its ability to keep the heads aligned. Epson offered a 10% discount at their "factory rebuilts". Not good enough. Overall my experience with this model was at best challenging. Rollpaper operations with Epson Canvas would not always feed properly. Several Ilford papers ended up with roller tracks, therefore totally useless. Although I never bought anything but Epson inks I still faced clogging problems. I lost another Epson printer ( Model C82) to clogged print heads - or the inability to use certain colors. Magenta was my biggest loser. The 2200 also demonstrated the lack of proper feed with my Museo papers. For the amount of money I spent I expected a lot more. As to the future: never again will I buy another Epson product, despite the fact that I am sitting on about $200.00+ worth of inks (useless), Canvas Roll Paper and more...

My final act:
I just ordered a Canon PIXMA Pro 9000. Wish me luck!
