    I have also heard that information can be recovered from a hard drive. There are companies that do that in a clean room.

    If anybody is curious about the inkjet printing market, this is a good article:

    I think it comes down to this: If the printers produce a reasonably satisfactory finished product - will consumers be willing to pay more up front to save more later.

    In the long run, the EK printers sound like a good deal - but do consumers think about the long run?

    Yes, there are plenty of outfits that advertise ISO 9001:2000 clean rooms for data recovery. None guarantee results...

    Is this also true with pigment inks?

    Excellent and relevant question. I believe the Kodak units use these types of inks. Indeed, most high-end printers do because of the archival properties vs. dye inks.

    Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for you as far as compatability goes. Allegedly the Walgreens refill stations do a couple of tests to ensure that the refill ink is not incompatible with the cartridge. If the tests fail, then you don't pay for the refill...

    Some manufacturers (e.g. HP) now install electronics that effectively "expires" their cartridges after a certain date - meaning, the printer drivers do not allow you to print if the cartridge is more than "x" days past its manufacture.

    I don't know if any incompatability with refill stations would help or hurt Kodak.

    I think Kodak wants to price their ink cheap enough to eliminate the desire for purchasing third party inks. The new Kodak printers are not more expensive than other inkjet printers.

    I would tend to agree about the inks. Regarding printer expense, I've seen a couple of article suggesting the prices are a bit high. Here's one, if you are interested:

    Maybe it's a better mouse trap and maybe it isn't.

    Right now, I print on silver gelatin and scan for the monitor - so it isn't my kind of mousetrap.
