I use inkfactory.com. I only ever use Epson inks - not sure why just not brave enough to risk using others as I rely on the printer for my work.....

Dont bother with the DIY refills you'll just end up with ink everywhere and poor printing!

I only use genuine Epson inks and the best value is to be found in Tescos (they also do compatables but I have not been brave enough to try them)

Hmmmm. I've been doing that for years and not had those problems. Then again I do only buy printers with separate tanks/print heads rather than the manky lexmark/HP style all in one carts.

Mstiny, it all depends on how old your Epson is. I asked Steve at SVP a while back about the newer Epson printers and he told me they don't refill very well due to a different formulation in the inks. Respect to him for telling me that even though he knew it would cost him a sale:thumbsup:

Edit. Nearly forgot, Mstiny WHERES THE MOAN!!!!! You're off form today love ;-)

I use to sell Ink and Ink refills. You wont get in a mess refilling if you use a bit of commomn sense, unfortunately its not supplied in the packs.
Most epsons are now chipped so dont bother refilling it wont work anyhow.

We tried lots of new makers as wholesalers and to tell the truth, after testing hundreds from several manufacture and mostly chinese, which most are now anyway. Including most epson original.
There was not enough of a difference between any make with regards to quality or colour. This is due to the fact that although there are over 100 different makes important, there are less than 5 manufacturers.

There is more variance between the epson printers than there is between the cartridges. So just buy yourself one or two, see how they go if they are ok, buy a larger amount and save money.

You could try inkclub through quidco, you will get a FREE black ink(costs £ 3 postage) and you earn £ 9 with quidco, just done that myself but havent tried ink yet. Have to many

Something to watch is that if there is any form of warrenty or maintanence on the printer it will probably in the t&c's that u use original inks only

NOTE it is illegal in the european union to tie a printer warranty to the use of OEM Ink Cartridges. Therefore the use of any other cartridge can not invalidate your warranty

EC Directive 1999/44/EC. Unless the company can PROVE the aftermarket cartridge caused the damage the warranty stands.

Last year I was going to buy a new Canon printer to supplement my i550x (for photo printing), then I found out it had a chip that logged refills so I bought a cheaper Brother printer which has no chip. I'm happy, Canon lost a sale. Oh and the Brothers STILL on its first set of inks as unlike most of these rip off merchants they supply with FULL tanks.

If only because they have not let me down until now I use the following company for refills for all the Epson printers I have had,

http://www.hornseainkjets.co.uk/index.asp

I used to use them through the Ebay system but then found it more convenient just to phone up and place an order or do one through their website.
Obviously the Epson ones are compatible but they have never caused me a problem with the normal epson maintenance software.

For my r220 printer I can buy the cartridges in sets which usually work out at about £1 a cartridge inclusive of delivery.
For instance 4 sets off 6 plus 4 extra black cartridges cost £25 delivered. (28 carts for £25 quid)

Right now I've written all the above you can bet your life something will go wrong or somone will have a nightmare story about the company.I can only write with the TRUE experience I have had.
Secondly I only use these cartridges for low end use like homework. I do print out a few photos and the carts have been pretty good for that although I wouldn't say excellent.
I do not print out any very high res graphics or stuff that relies on truly accurate colour.

Hope that helps :)

Sorry have read that directive a few times recently due to a consumer dispute im involved with and am unsure which part you think would cover this particular problem?
Do you mean the burden of proof aspect? because they can and im sure if it came to a scrap (doubtful but possible) they would
The nearest analogy i can come up with here is if you buy a petrol car and fill it with diesel u cannot expect warrenty or consumer law to cover the work involved.

My local computer shop 'Land Of Computers' does five black or three colours and two black carts for my C66 for £10 and they work as well as Epson branded ones. This is the same make-

so i'd say search for inkrite, see if you can get 5 for £10 or 4 for £10 locally perhaps.
