I know as much as you have indicated - and that is that you know very little. Did you even know that 'Bubble Jet' is a Canon patent and that Epson don't use that technology? What you have said indicates that you didn't.You have no idea how much or how little I know about printers.
If you are not printing photographs then you don't need an Epson printer - and would actually probably be better off with a Laser (any manufacturer).selectortone said:You might have a point if I were printing photographs or similarly graphics-intensive pages.
'Compatible' cartridges - they are not 'fake', just not made by Epson or even to the stringent standards that Epson demand - will cause nozzle 'clogging'. I had a customer with 3 Epson Ink-jet printers and a new member of staff decided that they could reduce the company printing costs by using 'compatible' supplies. Within 14 days all three printers had been destroyed. Not only did I regain the supply of 'genuine' Epson cartridges, I got the sale of three new printers - and the thanks of the MD!!
