Following on from an earlier post, I thought I bring the CISS system to peoples attention. This is the info from SVP:
CISS (Continuous Ink Supply Systems) provide significant cost and time savings to the high volume ink user.
Providing a continuous supply of ink to the printer without the need to replace cartridges, the continuous ink flow system works by using a vacuum seal, preventing leakage and loss of ink supply to the cartridges.
- Does not require the chips to be reset on the cartridge therefore no chip re-setter is required.
- Simple installation
This model includes 6 prefilled ink containers, each containing 80ml of ink (equivalent to about 6 original cartridges per container) - also consider that every time you change a cartridge normally the printer runs a head cleaning process for all the cartridges this uses more ink).
Once you have used the initial supplied dye-based ink the tanks can be easily refilled with the compatible ink. You only need to top up on colours that require it (there is a guide line on the containers to warn you when your ink is running low).
I have one of these systems for my R265, and have printed off well over 200 dvd's and covers, and still have loads of ink left. It is well worth the small outlay on getting one, I really can't stress how much of a saving you'll make on ink! Currently in stock for the Epson R265/R360/RX560/C48/D68/D88, from £25.45 including delivery.
