I couldn't agree more. 7day shop are an excellent company, and quite honestly, my own personal opinion is that with their prices for originals, it is just not worth the risk of using compatibles. I know that compatibles have their fans, but there have been an awful lot of postings from time to time with problems caused by their usage. Stand by now for a blasting from the compatibles fans, but they will never convince me.
I have now received an answer to an e-mail that I sent to the company on your link. They confirmed that they DO NOT sell original cartridges, only compatibles. They reffered me to an associate company. I have checked their prices for originals, and all that I can say is STICK WITH 7DAY SHOP.
did an analysis of loads of sites a few weeks ago looking for my cartridges and missed that site somehow, all i can say is theyre well cheaper than any of the ones i found by a good few quid. well done shifty!
The Epson 380 takes the same cartridges as my 895. i always use Choice Stationery. go to click here they are compatibles but I have never had any problem with them. buy the double quad pack 4 black and 4 colour for £38.99 = 4.97 each.
I've also bought compatible cartridges from Choice. Their delivery is quick and reliable, the one occasion delivery did not arrive it took 1 email and it was with me next morning. However, am now a little concerned about using compatibles as the ink status monitor does not appear to work with compatibles, it is blanked out. Not a major problem perhaps but it does mean I have no idea when the cartridge is about to fail. Next time I will give 7 day shop a try as they have been recommended on this site a lot, and see if buying original makes a difference. The 830 is a great printer for my home use and although a bit slow to warm up - it chunders away for quite a while - it's worth the wait!
