That, and the 130 ML cart sizes of the Z3100-Z3200 make it the champions for intermittent use. The nozzle abandoning stories are not something observed in practice, over two years of intermittent use on the Z3100 here and no head had to be replaced. Warranty on them is passed many months ago. Heads and cart replacement is however affordable and user friendly. For the control freaks the calibration and profiling aboard must be nirvana.

I thought I would use my Z3100 more often than I do. It can go weeks without printing anything. I've never so much as had to do a head cleaning on it until a month ago or so when the MK head showed up in a test print as being clogged.
The print head warranties expired some time ago, though I haven't put much ink through - all but two cartridges are the originals that came with the printer.
I'm more worried about the hard drive dying with the printer turned on all day every day.
