A couple of questions about the lifetime of inkjet prints:
- Has anyone had any experience with the Durabrite inks from Epson? I know they only work in some of their printers. But, the concept of an ink that doesn't fade because of sunlight or smudge because of water sounds like a great concept. Does the reality live up to the hype?
- I'm very interested in the Canon i960 printer because of the great reviews I've seen everywhere. I understand the prints will last something like 25 years if they are mounted behind glass. But I also love to print out pictures to hang on the refrigerator and hand out to friends (where I have no control over how they handle the prints). Anybody have any experience on how these prints will last in these environments?
- Does Canon or HP have any plans to market inks similar to Durabrite? When might these be released? Will I be able to use them in current printers or will this require a new printer?
