Epson xp-950 all in one printer

I HAVE JUST HAD TO BUY A NEW PRINTER, AS THE CANON PIXMA 640 FINALLY PACKED IN.
AFTER CONSIDERING BUYING ANOTHER CANON PRINTER , THEN FINDING OUT THAT THE TWO MODELS THAT HAVE SUCCEDED THE 640 , HAVE BOTH BEEN DISCONTINUED, I WAS RELUCTANT TO BUY ANOTHER CANON.

I HAVE INSTEAD BOUGHT AN EPSON XP-950 ALL IN ONE PRINTER.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS WERE GOOD, VERY EASY SET UP, QUICK WIFI SET UP.

BUT THE FIRST PROBLEM I HAVE FOUND IS, SCANNING AND PRINTING B/W. THE COUPLE OF B/W PRINTS THAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR, ARE VERY DISAPPOINTING.

THEY ARE LITERALLY BLACK AND WHITE, NO TONES AT ALL , NO DEFINITION IN FACIAL FEATURES, JUST VERY BLAND BLACK AND WHITE.

IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO , EITHER WITH THE PRINT DRIVERS SETTINGS OR IN CS3.

UNFORTUNATELY , I AM NOT ABLE TO SHOW THE RESULTS HERE

The EPSON Expression Premium XP-820 got a best buy in Which? so I would have thought that your model would be at least as good as that if not better, so maybe some tweaks in the driver are needed?

I think that the Canon MP range was superseded by the MX range - the MX535 and MX 935.

Re: Epson xp-950 all in one printer

Might be talking a load of rubbish, but is there not a tick box or setting when you click to print to say "Black and White"?
I have just checked and both the Epson R2880 and an XP-412, with the Mac when you have click 'Print' you can then select the printer (if you have more than one), with both the R2880 and the XP-412 when you go to the next screen there is a tick box with Black & White beside it, this I believe will produce the print the way you are hoping for.
The XP-412 is also an All in One and only has 4 inks.
Hope this helps
Graham
