You can obtain your Epson waste ink pad reset utility for your newer Epson printer here ( North American models only) http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp The official availability of this directly to the consumer throws the question of which printer to get into a tough one. These newer Epson printers print very beautiful images, many prefer their output over Canon but that is purely subjective, suffice to say pretty darn good, they print DVDs very nicely, are fast enough for most users, and if you hunt carefully can get refillable cartridges for them with no issues of flushing after so many uses etc. Dare I say easier to refill than the Canon tank? As for clogging, my experience with the latest generation has been quite good. How about three weeks of non use and it fires up perfectly without a head cleaning. Is that good enough? My experience with these piezo heads is that they are extremely rugged and durable and will take much more abuse before failing as compared to a Canon whose heads are not as rugged. The only reservation I had about these were that you could not get the waste ink pad reset utility. Well with Epsons' releasing it to the public that goes down like the Berlin wall. As for changing the waste ink pad? Well if you look carefully at the printer, the waste ink pad is actually quite accessible compared to prior designs. Better yet, is that if you have a source of vacuum, you can actually rinse the waste ink pad and dry it without taking the printer apart at all! You can access it just by moving the head assembly to the left and getting to the bottom of the reservoir tank(...it is a tank now and will hold at least 6-8 ozs) and vacuuming it out. So there is no real pressing need to install a waste ink tank. I can't find a negative about these printers anymore or at least I'll have to try hard. The only negative is that it is more wasteful of ink, but if you price bulk ink appropriately, that is not as huge a hurdle as you may have thought previously. That makes the decision as to Canon or Epson ever more difficult and tips the scale compared to a month ago.
