I have wasted maybe 100hrs mucking about with profiles and stuff on a 1200, 
read shedloads, tried the various things Ian Lyons suggests, and got 
nowhere. All I have to show for it is 200+ rotten test prints. Not one was 

Apart from anything else I came to the conclusion that CM within the Epson 
driver is completely broken. So Pixl or any other profiles are not likely 
to help me. The 1270 may be better.

A couple of months ago I gave up with all the autopilot approaches, and set 
about merely doing manual adjustments in the printer driver (CMY, 
saturation, contrast). This has worked far, far better than anything else : 
prints are now as close to the screen image as is possible within the 
limits of a different gamut. And it's free.
