We have a slightly newer LF color plotter at work that is a nightmare as far as inks and clogged heads go. The inks refuse to work if you go 1 day beyond the printed expiration date and it seems like we are replacing the print heads almost as often as the inks. While this isn't a photo-quality printer, I'd be concerned that there is similar technology in the latest offerings.

It's a huge concern. I owned the DesignJet 130 at the same time I was working at a museum that had one of the big Epsons - I could leave the DesignJet alone for months and the print heads were fine when I came back to print. The Epson, not so much.
