The Epson is same price on Amazon
Amazon reviews are a bit off putting for both and it looks like the inks are expensive for both of these printers.
Haven't voted

I just need a reliable printer with cheap compatible inks - is that too much to ask for?

"just need a reliable printer with cheap compatible inks - is that too much to ask for?"


Yes!

Printers are money pits!
Seems printer companies have cottoned on to the fact buying a new printer is cheaper than buying the ink! They have reduced the starter inks to increasingly ridiculous smaller sizes. Epson did try to reverse this with refillable tanks but have gone back to making profits and awkward cartridges like HP pressurised.

If only we can get a dot matrix printer, lasts decades but often becomes software incompatible
meh, never had an epson that couldn't be used with dirt cheap compatibles

Oki makes loads of models of dot matrix printers if that is really what you want. Lots of cheap pattern ribbons about though best to buy genuine oki.
if it uses the 540 and 541 ink cartridge then its cheaper than buying them separately and you can sell the printer on or give it away to a family member like a student
I have an old MG 3220 and as posted above more cost effective to buy this upgrade with ink than replace my next set of print carts

They have not cottoned on to anything, it was done intentionally. I'm sure they loose money on the sale of the printer but they hook you in with a monthly purchase on the ink. This is the nature of their business hence the war waged against compatible ink manafacturers.

They know this and in most cases they don't care if you get a new printer, the printers new come with a very small amount of ink so you will end up having to buy ink anyway.
I’ve got the Epson. Works great, buy compatible inks from eBay/Amazon dirt cheap. I’ve also got the HP WiFi one similar specs, now that is a money pit! Sat gathering dust as the cartridges are at cheapest £20 for minimal ink, for an extra £9 get a cheaper to run printer! Madness really in this plastic saving world I’d rather pay more for a printer then less on inks,I hope someone from these companies is listening!

Maybe re-read what I wrote, yes it is intentional and then changed intentionally. In the past they supplied full cartridges with new printers, only in the last 15 years have they started the starter cartridges. At that time I use to buy a printer every 6 months as it was just easier but involved a lot of waste, still similar now but buy a new printer every other year and use compatible inks in between
Flagging the deal as expired doesn't seem to have any noticeable effect.
Um... I've got this and it's a really good printer by the way. I've had a lot of cheap printers (HP are the worst imho) and this is very nice for the money.
Bought this from argos last October and it broke on January although i used it once a month if that
Canon one is £49.99 following the link. Still, not bad for a document scanner with some option print capabilities

Probably as it was posted by a moderator...

You can buy the refillable ink cartridges for the Epson, and then the Ink is cheap enough.
