I'm tired of paying so much for my Epson R300 inks. I am wondering if anyone has used after market inks. If so, which ones would you recommend andhow did youfind out about them? Are there any resources I can go to in order to compare for myself? Thanks.

Ypu might try googling "nifty stuff forums" without the quotes.
They do have a section about inks and the experiences of their users.
Hope that helps.

matt dont know where u are but in england its about £6 for all 6 carts (compatable) i have a r200 and all its ever had in in compatable carts, what is important i find is to use the very very best paper, the best i have found that gives excellent results is kodak ultima pro.

i am running anohter r200 with a continuous ink feed but that needs refilling saves getting and swapping carts as it autorests itself all the time

Osage sugested pre-fills are an option if you choose... vacuum filling those sponge free tanks is a pain and worth considering. There are also sponge refillables which have a limited life but dont require vacuum filling.

... and I'd advise that SINOPIS stop ruddy spamming the forums with recommendations for their own products.

That aside, if you're using a LOT of ink and carts then CIS are worth looking into, especially as the R200 is easy to install on and uses dyebase ink which is generally the cheapest.. (compared to pigment inks eg: durabrite, etc..)

But otherwise there are a number of reasonable after market carts out there if you look around... The nifty-stuff forum is very useful as well with a couple of very knowledgeable types who can and will help out.

Good luck with it
