[QUOTE=RWP;2012166]CDan, do you know if this chip resetter really does work with the latest Epson tanks for the R280 series?
I can’t seem to find ink tanks listed for this model (skips fro R260 to R380) on most sites; would be interested in reasonably priced OEM high yield or reputable refills/non-OEM that use a decent dye-based ink that won’t clog the heads and performs nearly as well as OEM in terms of saturation and disc printing drying time. Are both G&G and inkjetsaver.com reputable suppliers of ink that meet these requirements?
Drop them an email and they’ll let you know about the chip re-setter. All R260/280/380/580 printers use the same tanks. The R280 replaced the R260 and is identical inside.
I’ve gotten both G&G and some generic tanks from CompUBiz/Inkjetsaver and have seen no difference compared to Epson tanks. In fact, I’ve had one Epson tank fail to work at all, and none of the compatibles have failed.
I used to do a lot of re-filling, but got tired of the hassle and mess. If I can get a compatible tank for around $5, I go that way. If you’re a heavy printer user, look at CIS systems. But unless you’re replacing tanks every week, IMHO, re-filling isn’t worth it.
