Choice stationery are flogging 2 for the price of 1 compatible cartridges for thesee printers. 12 cartridges (2 of each colour) are now £29.49; according to my calculator that's £2.50/cartridge.click here
Try SVP communications they have Jet Tec back in stock (which is very good) at a very good price you do have to pay postage but I usually add them to an order for other things as they sometimes have a 99p shipping weekend for orders over £30
I've had a lot of problems with these so called compatible cartridges and know a lot of other people who have had to. I also seemed to get a heck of a lot less prints out of the compatibles that I did with the genuine ones. This was with an epson sp935.
Cheap inks are perfect for cheap inkjet printer used to print out text and graphics on a normal daily basis, but if you're paying a premium for a decent photo printer I would only use the originals to get the best print quality
Just tried out a set of Choice Stationery's compatibles for my Epson Photo 950 printer as the 1st time trial. Started ok, apart from warning messages about non-genuine Epson cartridges. Then as the last genuine Epson cartridge (of 7) ran out, one compatible showed up as a fault. Replaced the genuine Epson which had run out a compatible and the faulty compatible with another, a 3rd, 4th and 5th compatible came out registering as faulty as well!
Meanwhile, all printing has stopped as I could not continue.
BUT. Choice Stationery tech support have been brilliant. They were able to give me good advice over the telephone and sent me 2 replacements without any quibbles. These fixed the faults originally discovered. Now to wait until Monday to call them about the new faults recorded, when I expect just as quick a response as last week.
Colours do not come out as well as the Epson originals, but that is not important for non-photo printing, especially at such a price differential! I shall resort to Epson originals for critical photo printing.
