EpsonC70+ compatible cartridges, which ones?

What compatible ink cartridges are you using with success in your printer? Who are you purchasing them off? I have recently tried two seperate lots from choice stationary without much success. The first lot gave terrible colour reproduction with one Cyan cartridge coming up on screen as a magenta. I thought I would have another go but the second lot were totally rejected, all I got was a large red cross through the ink level monitor. I have no problems with using compatibles as I have done for years on my previous Epson 760, and to be honest the colour reproduction was actually better. Why use originals at around £9.00 each cartridge when you can get two compatibles for the same price? Thanks in advance

You've answered that question earlier in the post.

That wasn't the question????? I want some feed back on other users of compatible cartridges who are having a success with them. What I don't want is the 50 reasons why I shouldn't use them. Simple Question?

I have an Epson Stylus C20UX and have just used my first lot of compatibles from choicestationery because they were the cheapest and haven't had any problems so far. Touch wood.

I am using Jettec compatibles from Westlakes.
Installed easily and gave results indistinguishable from originals.

Cost £7 + VAT for colour, £14 + VAT for black.
Not as cheap as Choice Stationery, but reasonable.

Some problems with blocked Magenta cartridge. OK after cleaning the heads. Problem first showed up with Epson Orginal, which I replaced before it was completely empty.

Too early to tell yet if comptables are fully reliable, but first impressions are fine.
