Ive been using my Epson Photo 900 with ink from choice stationary for a while now, but with the last two colour carts a couple of the colours have stopped working! Ive tried using the cleaning utility a few times and then printing a nozzle check but only 4 of the 6 colours print? Ive laso had this problem with my last black cartridge which suffered from blotching as well as clogging.
I cant afford Epson carts, so can anyone recommend any other cheap ones that work well?
I bought a black cartridge from them for my epson C70. It was a few months before I got round tio installing it, as my original Epson was still in use. Anyway I only got half a dozen pages of text from it before it ran out! I don't think it had been filled properly. And unlike Epson originals the ink wasn't as waterproof.
If you try somewhere like 7 dayshop.com you can get originals a bit cheaper as you don't pay VAT
I have an Epson 680 Stylus Color and I too use compatible cartidges from Choice Stationery and have done for just over 3 years and have had no trouble in that time. Have you contacted Choice about this matter as they not only offer a 100% guarantee on their carts but also guarantee that if they damage your printer they will collect and repair or replace it for you. I have never had occasion to test them on this but I am fairly confident they wold honour their guarantee if they had to.
Having the identical printer (epson photo 900) I have tried choice stationary, found that there was nothing wrong with the quaility, changed to there carts half way through printing a photo, and you couldn't tell where the change was made, assumtion no quaility loss.
But I did find that because for some reason my printer kept completing self cleans, that the cartridges did run out a lot quicker than the epsons, so in the long run I wasn't really gaining anything by using choice. So I have gone back to epson.
But do give choice a chance to recify this by phoning, most people do find them very helpful.
They will replace but I also have had trouble with chipped compatibles, I end up cleaning a lot and wasting most of the cart. The only ones I seem to have success with is Jet Tec the Inkfactory do a 2 for 1 deal but you would have to check whether that are available for 900 BOGOFINK do them on a 2 for the price of 1 and they have them for a 900
