  1. I would also consider the following: Check out 3rd party paper suppliers. Do they have printer profiles (ICC’s) for these printers. Are inks readily available if you run out? Is the ransom cost for the inks painful. So does a Costco or a office store carry those inks or are you forced to go estore and have it shipped.
