I'm really jealous, because I really want one.

I found this article very helpful.

About half way down is a section on profiles and color management. It will 
make things a lot easier if you do this setup. Not only does color come out 
better, but so will B&W. It's valid for other Epson printers, too.

If you are using a PC, follow that link "mystery now solved." (That's what 
I have, so if you need step-by-step, let me know.) That's how you get Epson 
profiles for PC.

There are a lot of ways to handle color management, and it can get really 
complicated, but if you just do the setup in Photoshop as they describe, 
and set the printer for No Color Adjustment, you'll get pretty good results 
and it's easy.

Another hint from reading that material: One user got better B&W if he used 
the profiles, but set the driver to use Photorealistic mode.

Haven't tried that yet, myself. Might be different for my 6 color job. That 
does acceptable B&W on matte paper using just the standard color settings. 
It was terrible before the profile was installed.
