I have finally decided to give up on Epson. I've always used their printers as (when working properly) the quality can be great. After yet again wasting ink trying to clear banding problems and unsuccesfully trying to get a nozzle check to print properly (despite the fact I installed new ink cartridges before the old ones ran out - again!) I have finally given up and ordered a Canon. I like the idea of a replaceable print head and individual ink cartridges should make the whole process much more economical.
