Printer ink for epson own brand or other

  gel 11:16 27 Nov 2012

Hello Own brand printer ink is expensive For my Epson Stylus SX535WD own brand is £41.29 for pack of the 4 From the same supplier the cost is £19.79 Is there any evidence that the cheaper ink is as good as the own brand? I am aware that the printer will inform me that I am not using the correct ink, but does this matter?

Many people swear by (good) compatible inks but, I have had 2 Epson printers develop print head problems which have made them unusable. I attribute these problems (maybe incorrectly) to compatible inks. Consequently, I always use own brand inks in my Epson photo printer - I'm not so choosy in my HP everyday printer.

You will no doubt get some strong recommendations for compatible inks from satisfied users.

Thank you very much for your comments With my 'old epson' I always used compatible inks but I accept that they do dry out so frequently I did a head clean and it seemed to work Now I have bought a new epson, the old one was about 6 years of age and my financial advisor (guess who) says I must look after it
