Pen clogging problems with the HP 130?

My current wide format printer suffers from frequent pen clogs.  I am sure I am putting more ink in the waste reservoir during cleaning cycles than goes on paper.   I no longer print frequently enough to keep the ink from drying in the pens.  I'm considering purchasing the HP 130r as a replacement.   How is it as far as pen clogging goes?  Can you go a week without printing without the pens clogging?  One advantage of the 130 is that the pens are user replaceable, but that could get very expensive if it has to be done frequently.  Can the pens (jets) be cleaned by removing them and wiping the surface with an alcohol swab?

Hi transco

Is it the HP130 cartridge you have (# C8767)?

If so, this cartridge can be manually cleaned (see Fig 7 here as an example)
