It has been at least 3-4 years since I last printed images on my home printer. I used to use an Epson Photo 780 (little brother to the 1280) but stopped using it for several reasons: 1) Clogs - The print heads would repeatedly get clogged and it got to the point where I could not clear them no matter how many cleaning cycles I ran through them. 2) Price - Price per print was cheaper at the lab. 3) Convenience - I print a lot of 4x6s to 8x10s and it was tedious to load the paper, replace cartridges, clean-up clogged heads, and especially to cut 4x6 paper (Epson didn't make 4x6 heavyweight matte paper). 4) Quality - I felt that my prints from the lab were higher quality than my home prints. I was using Epson Heavyweight Matte paper with OEM inks. For a lab, I used to print at Costco and now I have all my prints done at WHCC. I have been very happy with my prints from WHCC, but was wondering about the 'other side' because I know that inkjet technology has been improving quite steadily these past few years since I stopped doing my own prints. My questions is, how does the quality of the current state of the art inkjets such as the Epson R2400 compare to prints from a lab where all things are equal (color profiling, etc.)? Are clogged print heads still a problem? Thanks in advance!
