Epson T0807 cartridges supplied not useable so Beware!
on 28 January 2015
I purchased these cartridges for my Epson Stylus R360 printer which uses the T0807 Hummingbird cartridges, unfortunately when I went to use them some weeks later I found they would not fit the printer, a problem I have never encountered before, I emailed the supplier asking for advice and got no response. Amazon then emailed on my behalf and also got no response, wonderful customer service, not!
On further investigation I found the cartridges were identical in every way to the Epson originals I have had to buy since except at the rear where they are different, the cartridges have a number of plastic spines on the rear all different for each colour which when slotted into the printer ensures you can only put the correct colour in each slot, on examining all six cartridges I found that the plastic spines on the cartridges supplied were different to the original cartridges in every case hence the reason they would not fit so am now out of pocket as no one seems to be interesting in correcting this problem.
So unless Epson are producing two different cartridges with the same name the ones supplied to me as original appear to be imitations so beware, ensure you are getting what you require!
The photo shows the difference between the original on the left and the "identical" cartridge, i.e. same colour on the right, you will note the gap between the two right hand spines are completely different.
