i need more ink, 18 July 2009
Up until now I have not been able to print more than 30 b&w text pages with a single cartridge, thats just simply hilarious...
Badly enough it`s not the first time I have this problem with an Epson.
In the last 15 years I have had several printers from any makes, and all of them had heir flaws, but Epson and especially this one top them all in regard to ink consumption, necessity of head cleaning (using tons of ink, which is more expensive than gold by the way) and time until ready to print the first page (probably due to the head cleaning)
Having read trough all reviews and based on my own experiences with a couple of Epson printers it seems that they have a general issue with print head clogging and I'm beginning to think that this is their strategy to sell more ink.
However I don`t care anymore, this was certainly the last Epson printer I bought in my life. When the inks are down, won`t be for long, I`ll get an HP or Canon.
