Why do printouts from the C84WN look different than the printouts from my other Epson color printer?
The Epson Stylus C84WN uses Epson's exclusive DuraBrite ink, a revolutionary pigment-based ink technology that not only gives you superior image quality, but provides water, light, and smudge resistance as well.
The colors produced by DuraBrite inks may look slightly different than those produced by ordinary dye-based ink.
Due to the nature of pigment inks, lighting conditions can affect the appearance of your printout. For example, a print viewed in daylight may appear to have a slightly different color balance when viewed under tungsten lighting. Your printer software was designed to represent color accurately when prints are illuminated with a D50 (daylight) light source.
Also, the degree of gloss may be uneven on glossy photo papers. Gloss decreases with greater pigment saturation.
