Be firm with your printer
on 26 February 2013
I bought this to use with an Epson inkjet - in fact I bought the printer specifically because there were third party inks for it.
Just installed the black cartridge.
The printer grunted, complained and asked me to push it in harder... ( I kid you not - that's pretty much what the pop-up box said). So I did that; the printer wheezed and whirred for a bit and then accepted the new cartridge.
Needless to say I was (in order) excited, concerned, amused and relieved.
So the new black is printing happily, and, to my eye, at maybe a 5% loss of 'blackness'. If the cartridge produced that extra 5% I'd give these 5 stars - but make no mistake; for the price these are brilliant.
