I know no one can predict for sure, but since inkjetmall is still selling inks for the R3000 and people (like me) are buying them, there must be some confidence that these printers still have life in them. My printer has lasted longer than I thought it would. But I must admit it spent more time in storage and I held my breath when I finally plugged it in and it hadn't clogged up (I wasn't expecting it to be there so long). So as I go to place an order for a lot more cone ink, how do I know the printer will be around to use it?
Also there don't seem to be a wide selection of printers that use these inks. Nothing new anyway... I really hope mine lasts a long time..
