As the title suggests I'm after Epson compatible cartidges. It's an R300 and I've been using compatible cartridges of late but have to say they have a tendency to leak and have been less than impressive.

We're thinking of going back to Epson originals which cost an arm and a leg so just wondered what other members might be using instead. I'd rather pay more and get the better quality - but only if I need to:rolleyes: :devil:
 
If you buy direct from epsom a full set will be about £39 delivered, Or from what I have been told Staples do a full set(OEM) for £37.There is a company local to us called cartridge world that refill the original cartridges and they say it can be done for half the price of the new ones.I think its a national company so there might be one local to you.
 
If you want good quality prints, use the genuine article, if you are only printing drafts, use compatible. I have an HP printer and will not use anything but HP ink cartridges and paper, My two pennuf

My problem is we want both:crazy: We print out lots of stuff for work which I begrudge paying top notch for. But I do want to be able to print quality stuff when I want.

I hopefully have in the offing a couple of sets of originals which will last us a couple of months. Failing that as it's hubby that does the work printing more than me - he's just going to have to get work to buy some replacements:mad:

Generally I am quite happy to use compatibles just as long as they do the job!

Thanks for the tips guys;)
 
I have an Epson printer and I get my cartridges from www.theinkfactory.com

They sell both OE cartridges and compatible ones - the ones for Epson printers are branded Jettec. For the price of one OE cartridge you can get four Jettec ones (and they claim that each of these holds 30% more ink).

Personally I think OE ink cartridges (and OE paper for that matter) are way overpriced and I fail to see how the cost can be justified. I've never done a like-for like comparison, but I am more than happy with the quality of the prints that I get - especially when you factor in the cost. I use both el cheapo paper and the Epson stuff if I want a decent finish.

You could also try www.cpc.co.uk I have used their compatables before for an Epson and had no problems.
