Yes, I know, I know ... :) You are right, really - it does appear that 
expectations are too high WRT to these printers, although it has taken me a lot 
of pain and consumables to be sure about that. However, VISA/Mastercard would 
take a dim view of an Epson 3/5/9000, even if they could find my body after Mrs 
Halftone had made her feelings clear.

Yes, I know. Which makes it even more of a shame that the canned profile for 
the OE ink and paper is not accurate.
