Anyone tried the generic ink for the Epson 1270? I see them all over ebay for 4-5$ which is considerably less then the 30+$ for genuine epson ink... Anyone ? anyone? lol

i have, for the 1290 (the same ink and basically the same printer).

The only thing I have to say is: NO! DONT!

I have used MIS Supply ink and some ink from china, they both sucked. The colors were off, fading was HORRIBLE! and not all of the ink seemed to be coming in to the paper, it rather stucked on top of it. So dont go with something else than original Epson ink. Original is sometimes cheaper too, you dont have to do multiple cleaning cycles all the time, you always get perfect result and so on.

So dont be cheap, buy epson original. And paper too. I cant stress that too much
