2012-11-08: today print quality was unacceptable (lots of missing segments), confirmed by a nozzle check. So I had to perform a head cleaning (all colors), then another nozzle check, which showed all ok. After that, the printer prints ok again.

2011-05-13: unpacked the printer, installed ink cartridges, and used the front panel on the printer to connect it to my wireless network. pinged it to check that it worked, and use CUPS webinterface to set it up. CUPS found the printer right away (it uses the following URI lpd://, but it would only print with the driver "Epson Stylus Photo Series" (stphoto.ppd), and it only prints in black and white.

2011-05-12: I got the printer.
