Amazon asked me to review the Epson ink I purchased, so here goes.
It comes in a handy container, stopping it running out of the envelope it was sent in, and which handily fits in the space on my printer, which could have been designed for just such a container. However, when I next used the printer, a trail of black marks was made on the paper, which on closer study, took on the appearance of letters, actually forming words. I have no reasonable explanation for this occurrence, nor for being asked to review such a mundane product.

I've tried many different makes of print cartridges in the two Epson printers I have owned, sometimes they seemed to work OK and sometimes they didn't. Often I ended up cleaning the print heads so much to get them to print properly that most of the ink in the cartridge was used up, negating any cost saving at the time of purchase. In my opinion, if you want your Epson printer to work properly all of the time, use only genuine Epson ink cartridges. Why only 4 stars? They are still too expensive and don't last long enough.

I used 'clone' inks in the past but found they wrecked my printer. So now I always buy 'own brand' and this is a good value price from this supplier

Hard to get excited about an ink cartridge. It came punctualy, securely wrapped and appears to be original Epsom product. Yes I would go back.

As stated in the title I would always choose to use the manufacturer's own ink. I've had too many bad experiences of so-called "compatible" inks - failing to flow, damaging jets beyond repair.

So, not as cheap as other brands but performs faultlessly.

Great service. Pity about the postage charges as they were all sent together in the same package but 4 postage/packing charges applied.

Well, it's expensive but it works. And it works very well. In the past with other printers I have used non-original ink cartridges. Sometimes these have been OK; sometimes not. Now I am using the "official" cartridges; that means more money, but they do seem to work better. And in the end, I don't want to struggle with streaky prints, ink dropouts, blotches and other print failures. So, I've given this product a 4-star rating

I've stuck with Epsons own inks for years now. I used to use compatible inks years ago until I realized that all the trouble I used to get with lines all over my print, was down to the inks drying up. and not the printer itself. I sometimes don't use my printer for weeks but the ink always works perfectly, no lines, no clogging up. My printer is nearly 6 years old now and still working perfectly with no clogged up jets.

I give this five stars, but I should give it one. Since when can something like this cost so much money. It's ink. I mean, just a few short years ago, humankind was just squishing berries and boiling seeds to make dyes. Then someone invented ink and just the monks and stuff got to use it. And here we are today. Paying through the nose for a light magenta ink cartridge for a printer. Sigh.
