What have people observed re the useful life of epson printers? I had a 1270 for about 6-7 years and it was starting to have problems with paper feed, clogging and occasional ink leakage onto prints. I replaced it with a 2400 rather than look into service because I wanted to use pigment inks and heard the bw printing on the 2400 was better (true!). Now, after about 4 years I am just starting to have some of these problems with the 2400, which has seen moderate use (ca. 1-2 hr/day avg. - moderate to those of us with full-time non-photo jobs) vs. somewhat lighter use for my old 1270. Should I expect to be buying another in a year or so, or would the cost of repairs be justified by the additional life they might buy?
