I'm currently working through printing all my landscape photographs out on professional DuraBrite photo paper, using my Epson C84 Photo Edition, yet I am having serious problems with my printouts which has got continually worse recently, however it dosn't seem to do it as much, if at all when plain paper is used. Here is what I mean - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v465/ThalinRPG/Save0003.jpg This is on the Durabrite photo paper, best quality, and borderless setting. As you can see, I am getting these constant fuzzy bands throughout my printouts, and it is most evidant in blue printouts, despite running cleaning utilities to clean print heads, etc, which drains absolutely loads of ink. What do you think is causing this problem? If I was to get a new photo printer that dosn't drain ink *cough* Epson, does anyone have any recommendations? Remember that I am going to be using this mainly for high quality photo printouts, and although I have my eyes on the higher-end models, they are around the 200-300 pound mark which is simply too much. Do all Epson printers have the problem of constant head clogging, ink draining etc? I heard Canon have this problem a lot less, but instead have shorter 'lifespan' for the printouts. Is this true? I have my eyes on a recent printer around the 100 pound mark from good old Overclockers.co.uk - the Canon Pixma iP5300 Printer http://www.overclockers.co.uk/.....=PR-096-CA Obviously being new (about a few months old) am I looking to be paying more for inks? There are hardly any reviews for this product, but other models in the range have been reviewed and they are good reviews too, but i'm undecided about Epson or Canon, which is why I need your help. OK, well I can confirm i'm starting to see the fuzzy bands on normal paper too, and not just photo paper.
