After using cheap ink refills in our epson printer and seeing the loss of quality, I opted to buy the real deal and get this multipack of epson inks that are compatible with our printer. I was a little worried that I was paying too much for this multipack considering it was just under £28 but when you divide this by the amount of cartridges it works out about £7 per cartridge which isnt too bad for ink in the grand scheme of things.
I used to have to perform printer cleaning very regularly which I can only pinpoint to the poor quality ink refills that I used, but now using the genuine cartridges the difference is night and day.
You get four colours in the box - Cyan, Magenta, Black and Yellow, with the black ink having a slightly bigger capacity than the others as it gets used more often. The cartridges are so simple to install after removing them from the packaging, just dont touch the little electronic chip on the base of the cartridge when you are installing them.
The ink is durabrite ink meaning it is less likely to smudge with water, and has anti fade qualities. The print quality of photos is superb with the ink and I would recommend people buy genuine ink as it works so much better. Although ink refills are very cheap, the amount of cleaning and wasted ink probably brings the price in line with the genuine article.
A top tip that I have found is to purchase the ink from ebay ensuring it is in a sealed package. Got my latest pack on an auction for £16 :-)
