True, the price for a mere 13cc of ink in each cartridge is too high. Previous posts just demonstrate that insufficient research was done to identify the true cost of operating this printer
We can only hope that the kind folk at Epson have a pricing policy re-think in the near future or extend the bulk pack deals available for the cheaper products to the high end ink sales.
Today I am printing important invitations, the yellow ink is out . I replace it with one that arrived from Amazon recently.
Instantly a notice comes up that the ink is not genuine. I click that I will still use it . My time is short. The invitations must go.
No way. The printer has stopped and won't print at all no matter what I do.
It is Sunday and I can't find a shop open.
Where did this cartridge come from?Epson T0544 Yellow Ink Cartridge STYLUS Photo R800/R1800 Printers (C13T05444010)
Epson seem to have designed the 8 cartridge system to supposedly make replacing just 1 colour more economical for the user. But, let me tell you what an official Epson call-out engineer told me just 2 weeks after I bought my printer. Most of you probably know this already but, it's worth saying again.
Every time you change just one cartridge, the printer is designed to flush away the good ink in ALL the remaining cartridges as well. Thus, despite the advertising gumph saying that changing one cartridge at a time is economical, in fact, it's not. It's created specifically to drain away good ink. Personally I feel held hostage by Epson, I own my printer but Epson still control how I use it... and for how LONG too. Yes, that's right. The engineer also said that the printer itself is programmed to break down after 'X' number of prints are produced. It generates valuable revenue from service and repairs I assume. The printer has a clock/counter inside. Epson seem to think we (the user) need a built in self-destruct chip inside our printer that will serve as a forced reminder for us to book an expensive service. Apparently this is standard across all big brand manufacturers but, I personally think it is dishonest and it makes me angry.
Epson make great printers but personally, I don't like being stitched-up when I buy an expensive product like this. DON'T buy one if £80+ per month, AND a Kings Ranson to fix it when it mysteriously stops/breaks-down in the future, is going to be a problem for you.
I consider this is a deliberate intent to defraud as not one of the items is of merchantable quality and most certainly could not be sold on. After making a complaint to Print Refills they ignored all subsequent communications. PayPal also totally ignored communications as it was too much trouble for them to investigate the matter fully and also stated falsehoods.
I spoke to a Norman at Print Refills and at no time was I informed as to the state of the product I would be supplied with. Delivery requests were ignored as they were informed the recipient was handicapped and would be in hospital on certain days. Of course they attempted a delivery on one of those days. They stated that delivery would be made by Royal Mail, it was not which did not help. Attempts to sort the problems were totally ignored and Norman the Manager made false allegations followed up by ignoring emails.
I paid via PayPal and when they ignored my email and complaint I complained about their Customer Services which also went ignored. I was told 4 - 8 weeks I think it was before I got a response from them!
I actually received an email response from PayPal on 25JUL13 stating that they had found in my favour and had reversed the charges. I checked on my account and after finding NO refund phoned PayPal on 08AUG13. After phoning their 0870 number, too stressful trying to email them and getting ignored, after spending over 30 minutes on a mobile I now find they have made a mistake!Read more ›

I bought this ink for my R1800 printer - and it's exceptional quality (far better than generic brands). It also lasts longer than non-Epson ink cartridges. Read morePublished 3 months ago by S P Mead
