1) Epson dye ink based printers always need good quality clay coated or

you are after a printer than gives best results with standard bonded
paper, the HP will win, but the inks are sometimes "Velvia"
oversaturated with better papers as a result.

Yup. The HP is over-the-top, and the Epson is under-the-top. The upper right
square on the GretagMacBeth color chart is electric cyan on the HP, subdued
on the Epson. Hopefully some sort of intelligent color management should get
the Epson a bit brighter.

2) If this printer is taking anything approaching 30 minutes for a 8 x
10 print, even at 2880 x 720 dpi, something is not properly configured.
  Normally, 1/2 to 1/3rd that time for a print of that nature.

It'll crank out an A4 with margins in 5 minutes or so, but it takes 25
minutes for no-margin prints. From reading the fine print, this seems to be
what it takes. Sigh. Oh well, it'll keep my printing costs down<g>.
