Hi pinklillyella. With Epson printers there is a slight risk of compatible cartridges damaging the printer because the print heads are part of the printer and if they become clogged the printer may not be economically recoverable. HP printers are different. The cartridge incorporates the print head, hence the high price. HP compatible cartridges are generally used HP original cartridges that have been cleaned and refilled. It is almost impossible for them to damage the printer. If you buy from a reputable supplier, such as those mentioned by Jester2K II you are very unlikely to have any problems, although the print quality may not be quite up to that of an HP original.
"In the unlikely event of a claim that a cartridge refilled by Cartridge World caused damage to the printing mechanism of your equipment, please obtain a written statement from the equipment servicing company or the equipment manufacturer stating exactly how the Cartridge World refilled cartridge was responsible for the said damage. Send this statement and the service invoice together with the cartridge to the Cartridge World place of purchase. Cartridge World will reimburse the full amount of the repair charge for any such valid claim."
