If you take a look at the 3rd entry on this page click here, it says;

"Compatible with Epson Stylus Photo RX420, RX425, RX520 printers."

I realise that the last one was rx520 and yours is an rx500, but they are from the same range, so they should be compatable.

I would give SVP (blankdiskshop) a ring on 08707 669166 or as they prefer communication by email, drop them an email at [email protected].

They are good co. to deal with.

Hope this helps.

This link would suggest that the rx5oo is coverd by the r200/300 system, but as in my last link give svp (as they are cheaper) a call/email. click here

vinnyT, your links. The prices are way too high.

I have two R220 printers both using CISS which I got from:

thanks for the input guys.Im still unsure if Ill go for the refill system as Id hate to chop the case around to get access for the tubes to enter from outside of the lid.

You don't have to "chop" the case around. They fit perfectly without any modification the to case at all.

As far as I can see, Theres no way a tube of any description could pass from the ink tanks to outside the case without modifing it.you have to lift the total scanner body (hinged at rear)to gain access to ink carts.I emailed blankdiskshop as suggested .Asking how the ink-kit fits the Rx500 without interfering with the scanner > Reply = The scanner lid would need to sit up slightly. This shouldn't stop the scanner working, it would just mean when you scanned, the surrounding imaged which would normally be white (due to the white top on the scanner) would be black because a shadow is created with the lid sitting up slightly.. which suggest to me they are not conversant with the RX500.

Sorry got the email bit wrong .I emailed another supplier of the kit & the posted reply was theirs..(about the same price as pj123's link ) Diskdepot was the name not Blankdisk... Sorry about that.
