Keep in mind that it is an old printer.  Mine are several years old now and 
I'm sure you could get refurbished ones cheaper now.  It does accept 
archival inks. I'm using Cone Quad-Black Carbon inks in one and Generations 
Enhanced Archival Pigment color inks in the other.  The four color printers 
actually do better with archival inks than the six color ones.  It was the 
two extra colors that gave more problems with archival inks.  I think they 
may have solved that problem, but the four color printers do a great 
job.  I have an old six color PhotoEx and my 3000's do a much better job 
with color than it does.
