    I have always prefered HP printers (currently have the 7350) because in
    addition to making great prints they were also better (atleast IMHO) for
    everyday use.

    I am replacing the 7350 (bad USB connection on the back of the printer the
    primary reason) and considering the Epson R800.

    How is this for everyday use as far as basic black printing - printing
    letters, printouts from e-mails, etc.? I have always heard - never actually
    checked it out myself though I do have one Epson (Stylus Photo 760?) - that
    they were (a) slow printing black and (b) the black text was not a pure
    black but a combination of the colored inks which caused the inks to run out
    quicker. The HP's photo printers (atleast the 7350) has a black ink
    cartridge that is used solely for text, etc.

    Thanks for any imput

    I picked up a new R200 strictly for printing CDs and DVDs and can confirm
    that it has a black cartridge. In fact, all the colors are separate so you
    JUST replace the color you ran out of. BTW, I've always preferred HP
    printers too, but this one is pretty good for a $100 printer that came with
    $80 worth of ink cartridges.
