We've had several threads on photos and printer output. Graphics, the web, and printing seem to be coming even more interwoven now...

Here's an interesting article on hi-quality photo printers [dailynews.yahoo.com]. Did you know that Epson inkjet technology was developed for putting tiny droplets of oil into (Seiko) watches in an assembly line?

The only problem with these modern (last 4years) ink jet printers is they turn you into an addict. gimmi more cartridges, more cartridges. Between paper that is a dollar a sheet and $45 cartridges, they'll eat you out of house and home.

On the other hand, they are good enough, you can print your own money.

I picked up an ALPS 1300 (I thinks it's a 1300), which does continuous tone printing. The photo ribbons are fantastic, but the 'regular' ribbons make inkjets look like the cheapest thing since wonder bread.

We ran through a regular black cartridge in less than 2 months :o

What I need now is a *cheap* inkjet for text printing and drafts, and stick with my ALPS for photo-quality work.

As for the $45 cartridges, if you don't mind voiding your warranty, and sqirting ink all over the place the first couple of times, you can always refill your own.
