just make sure you get a spongeless and resetable system.

Erm.. why spongeless?

I know there's less likelihood of algae build up causing a clog but experience taught me a long time ago that the "spongeless nirvana" is not really all it's cracked up to be. In fact it would seem that a positive spin was placed on it as legal machinations from Epson were forcing 3rd party cartridge and CIS manufacturers not to use sponges at all because of the patents on the technology.

One reason why you might NOT want to consider spongeless is that it reduces the printers ability to resist a syphon or overpressure effect that can drain the reservoirs. Particularly true if you install an external waste ink tank and forget the golden rule of keeping it at the same level as the printer.

It does work, but it's not this great "fix all" solution that so many people love to throw out there.
