Epson Products Are A Scam
February 5, 2019
Aside from ink running out incredibly fast and never printing the amount of sheets advertised, the ink levels will drop even if you use NO INK. Epson inkjet printers are made to make you overuse and throw away ink, and pay FULL PRICE for it. Every single time you use any kind of "maintenance" function on the printer whether it be a tiny printed symbol for calibration or cleaning the ink header, the "ink levels" it shows will drop DRASTICALLY. If your printer malfunctions and prints 50 pages BLANK, the chips will still read this as using the ink even though no ink was used. You also CANNOT print black and white if colour cartridges need to be changed. It will not function until an "empty" cartridge is replaced, and not only that, but it will also automatically USE your coloured ink when printing in black and white. Printer companies, ESPECIALLY EPSON are scamming you out of your money with these inkjet products.
If you mainly print black and white you will save so much money by purchasing a decent monochrome laser-printer for around double the price of the cheap printers that use this ink. If you absolutely need to print colour on a day-to-day basis, do a lot of research and try to find a higher quality inkjet printer that is well-reviewed (printer and cartridges). It might seem like a nice deal buying a $50-60 printer until you realize you have to pay the same amount every month for the ink.
I've been scammed and I have learned from my mistake, and I hope whoever is reading this will learn from my mistake too and make a better choice.
