Upgraded last November from a Epson 9800 to the Surecolor P8000. What a difference. After 2 months usage, I noticed some banding on a print. So, I did a nozzle check. The PK ink nozzle showed some blockage, so I went to do a cleaning. And, to my surprise, the Epson allowed me to pick which nozzle to clean!!! This is a huge improvement. On my 9800, I had no choice and all the nozzles were cleaning, ie, wasted ink by pumping through clean nozzles. Bottom line - I can save expensive ink by just cleaning the clogged individual nozzle. Thank you Epson!
