Multifunction inkjet recommendation

  thewasp 15:34 06 Jan 2008

I recently purchased an Epson dx5000 which, when working is fine. I have had lots of trouble with it recognising new cartridges despite trying different brands. Then it refuses to print anything at all. I refuse to pay Epson a small fortune to use their overpriced cartridges. Another annoying thing is when you replace just 1 or 2 cartridges it runs a head clean which results in all the cartridges being drained of ink - which is far from economical.

So I'm looking to buy another model - I've completely lost faith in Epson.

Can anyone recommend a printer which is more "back to basics" preferably without a chip system and has large capacity ink cartridges? I am not worried about having the latest model, just something that is economical and works well.
