used stc800ih.upp for making some color overheads, including some molecular model pictures.
4 color CMYK printing with 64 jets per color. All the stc800 upp files will work with this printer at a very good speed.
The uniprint .upp files need some color tuning! If red comes out as brown, you may need to swap the Cyan and Magenta lines in the stc800p.upp file, for example, and even then the colors will be sort fo dark. Ghostscript's dithering is also not very good.
The good news is the Gimp-derived ghostscript driver "stp" is really good, so use it; it works perfectly with stp.

Consumables/Refills: seperate black and color ink cartridges
