Haha, you can't even compare the quality of a current Epson to that of an HP or Lexmark. Epson is worlds better.

Strange, my previous one was over 4 years old, & colour photos on glossy were brilliant right up to the end, I used to print loads of wedding photos for relatives & neighbours.

Ah ok.

I had a relative who NEVER changed out the oil.. he tried to go on a long road trip once without even inspecting the car. It locked up about an hundred miles out. They opened up the oil pan.. and nothing came out.

The D78 was 39.99, brand new, & boxed, I don't call that expensive, do you?

hmm no not really. thats quite good actually. i guess now even the cheap printers can produce good results, thats just because of the rapidly changing technology

Yeah, you can sometimes get Lexmark printers (although you probably DON'T want to get a Lexmark printer) at Canadian Tire cheaper than the cost of the ink for that particular printer.

Merc? as in mercedes? no, I doubt it. But that doesn't matter.
Keeping the same oil in a car for too long is bad for it. I'm no car expert or anything, but I know people who have killed engines because of that.
