Epson R220 discontinued?

Hi there

I went into Currys today and the sales adviser told me the epson r220 has been discontinued? I was wondering if it has been discontinued will getting cartridges for the printer be made harder?

I have r340

"will getting cartridges for the printer be made harder?"

I doubt it. Printer cartridges are NOT unique to a particular model of printer. They will also be used by other Epsom models.

Agree with the others it shouldn't be a problem, you can still get cartridges quite easily for printers they stopped making say 6 years ago.

They are said to have less ink than replacements, had mine four months and I'm still using the carts I got with it. I print full colur disks and photos every other day.

thanks for the help!
I was looking some dvd/cd blanks.. what does 'full face' printables and printables mean?

full face means the full width of the disk. click here

printable is the outer bit only, not the inner ring. click here
