Only the genuine article for me
on 27 May 2012
OK, genuine Epson cartridges do tend to look expensive when compared to third party compatibles; however I take a different view for two reasons:
- when used with genuine Epson paper the results, especially with these wax based inks for full colour photos can only be described as being superb (I have used compatibles before and found the colours to be less than brilliant)
- I have had to replace my printer several times due to clogged heads (a replacement printer is cheaper than a repair) and every single time it has been with compatible cartridges in place.
Some people complain about the price of genuine cartridges and say that the printer manufacturers are "ripping us off"; but surely everyone must know by now that the price of cartridges subsidises cheaper printers in the first place.
Based on that, I still recommend only the genuine cartridges.
(For info, I neither work for Epson, nor any company that has any commercial interest in Epson)
