OK... I'm 99.9% sure the RX620 is a dyebase ink type as it's the photo version so that's your first important bit of info.

As for MIS inks, I've been using them for the past 2+ years on Continuous ink supply systems and was using their ink for refilling my old trust Epson 740 a few donkey years ago so I can heartily recommend them.

The spongeless carts are new and I've only used them so far to provide a set of cleaning carts for a C84 so I can't swear to their efficiency. What I can say is that the little rubber stoppers for the refill hole are prone to popping out at the slightest jog so it's important to tape the stopper in place to stop it pinging out and causing the contents to drain into the printer (cue: unholy mess). Other people use a stainless steel screw instead of the stopper, but obviously you'd want to make sure it was the correct fit and airtight.

Only other thing to note is that you do of course need to buy a set of chips to suit the type of carts you're using and a quick look showed that MIS have those too.

Hope that helps..

So the MIS inks are a real close match to the Epson ink
