ive got a brand new epson C44UX printer but without the ink, is there any way of using cheaper ink from the start because im trying it and its asking for epson ink

Unusual for a 'New' printer to come without a cartridge set.

however try click here

you will need a compatable cartridge/cartridge set

Yeah ive seen it on some ads " dont forget your ink "

its a bit like buying a car with no wheels ;-))

I suppose the makers will say " well some people might want ordinary and some might want photo inks "

More like buying a car with no fuel. Totally useless.

Batteries not included.

But i can only assume the lack of ink is reflected in the price.

But if the printer is £40, and the Ink £40, why not buy a £80 printer, that might well be a better printer, that also has ink to start with?

Epson printer drivers have the annoying habit of asking if you wish to use compatibles when it detects that the inserted cartridge is not an original one. As far as I know, there is no way to turn off this message. Don't worry about it.

The print quality is no different (though some compatible inks may not be so colour fast). If you don't do much printing, compatibles might (allegedly) be more likely to cause blocked printheads, but if you do a lot of printing, the money you save is soon more than the cost of a new printer.

A new printer with no ink cartridges,just another way of making us spend more money

Mine is a C44UX and I`ve been using my old refilled cartridges for over a year, no problems, but I do a lot of printing. Some interesting answers, though. Mine arrived with cartridges when I bought it for £34. 95 in October last year.
