Hi Steve, I have been using compatible ink cartridges for my Epson C64 for about 3 years now. I find the best place to buy is on ebay. A good brand on ebay is Pro-Jet. Put a search into ebay for R265 ink cartridges, I just did this and there are loads available. One in particular is offering 7 inks for £14.99 + £3.00 P&P. You might be able to find cheaper if you look through all the listings. The ones I buy for the C64 are about £1 each. Never had any trouble with them.

Steve, I forgot to mention, make sure you buy the compatibles that have the chip already fitted, don't buy those where you have to take the chip out of the original cartridge, they tell you it's easy, but I found it to be a nightmare, ink everywhere etc.

I also have the R265 - I use compatible inks from click here with excellent results.

Don't worry about chip - you can buy from Choice with absolute confidence! I use them all the time, and have done so for years.

Well personally I would never buy inks on ebay, I would rather pay an extra £1 and know that my purchase was absolutely guaranteed to be perfect. I have dealt with Choice Stationery for some years (as have very many regular forum members) and have never been let down by them.

BTW - delivery is free, from Choice.
