wouldnt waste your money on these ink pots they drink ink dont matter wher the pad is in place or not they still spill everywhere I blame epson for making such a printer with these rediculous pots if you have to have them just by cheap compatibles they are less troublesome and you will have no mess Im changing from Epson to another printer maufacturer!
I put these in and the printer worked perfectly and didn't give any messages to say they weren't genuine as some do. Good quality prints and no problems. Works as good if not better than the genuine ones. As the genuine ones I had the printer decided to say that they weren't compatible for no reason whatsoever so that's why I bought these instead.
