With my R2880 recently having bit the dust, I am considering either a P600 or P800 as a replacement. I understand the Cone inks are not yet available for these, but hopeful they are on the way.
The P800 is probably overkill for me, as I won’t print that much… however, it is a very good value with the rebate and the volume of ink included. My only concern is that I don’t print that much, and it may take me a year or two to use up the ink. I understand the predecessor 3880 was good for not having many clogs when not printing every week, and am hopeful the P800 is similar (which, according to Epson, should be).
If, for instance, I don’t use up the original carts for 2 years (but with regular nozzle checks, shaking of the cartridges before printing, etc), am I ‘at risk’ for either clogging the head or the ‘expired’ and open inks losing some of their properties? I know IJM says the practical life of their inks is measured in year, and am hoping to hear that as long as I shake the cartridges and run a regular nozzle check, that I should be fine going 2 years on the original Surecolor/Epson UltraChrome HD cartridges.
Does anyone know if the epson warranty covers clogged heads?
Thanks in advance!
