The dither pattern makes such hard figures genuinely elusive. About as much as
anyone can say is to nail a DPI beyond which no further detail becomes
apparent, and another lower DPI at which diminishing returns set in. These seem
to be ~300dpi and ~240dpi respectively for 1440dpi Epsons, and probably 240dpi
and 200dpi for 720dpi models. But certain pics will look OK at lower values,
and Epsons tend to fail gracefully where dpi is concerned. Getting the bl**dy
colour spot-on is another matter...
