I have a well-maintained 7900 in otherwise excellent condition but with a dead Green channel in the head. I currently have Piezoflush in the Orange and Green positions and the printer is usable as a 7890 (8-color) and of course can still do Epson ABW. I've just moved up to a new Epson P9000 for printing for my clients, but the new Piezography Pro system I've been reading about has piqued my interest for possible use with the 7900 and my own work. In the past I've looked at Piezography for the 7900 but decided against it for a number of reasons, e.g. difficulties handling the GO, etc. I need to decide soon what I'm going to do with the 7900 (keep it or sell/junk it) so I have a few questions:
1) What is your latest expected release date for Piezography Pro for the 7900?
2) I've read that the GO will not require a separate pass in the new system. Does this eliminate the GO problem on the x900?
3) What configurations will be possible with my 10 good ink channels (9 head channels)? K7, K6, K? matte/glossy? split options? etc. (It would be nice if you had a table summarizing all the options which will be possible for each printer.)
4) Would I be able to re-use my existing Orange and Green refillable carts (from IJM) with the new system (assuming a good cleaning of course to remove the PF)?
