Thanks. Very information and great charts. Maybe the models are a bit old, but definitely give me some thoughts for how to choose a cost-effective printer.
i would never again choice stationary to buy my printer cartriges again as they said that my delivery would be delivered in 2 days 3 days later no cartriges have arrived so not a good place to buy cartriges so this review has a big 0 from me for so if anyone is reading this then be prepared for really bad customer service and prepare for a long wait for printing cartriges
Purchased replacement compatible inks for my canon mg6250 from ink jungle via amazon,very cheap deal and was pleasantly suprised at the results on my photo,s.quite acceptible.
Fascinating stuff. I'm pleased to see that the best option for my Canon printer is to use Cartridge World. So that's what I'll do! The only bad point about this article is that it needs proof-reading, but the content and the experiments seem very thorough.
Totally disappointed and frustrated with compatible cartridges I bought from printerinks for my epson printer. Got messages 'cartridge not recognised', cartridge showed empty after only a few days. It took a lot of fiddling about to get the cartridges accepted then the quality of print was appalling, cleaned heads, no different, impossible to use. Eventually went back to Epson's own. Printerinks did not want to know; they would not allow me to return the 5 cartridges I still have as over 6mths has elapsed (I have been in hospital and unwell). I probably just had a bad experience but I would advise against printerinks.
I don't know…So, all the prints were made with the same settings? I think you have to apply less ink to cheap, copy paper than you can apply to glossy photo paper. And, shouldn't we load in color profiles for the papers? Do the 3rd-party inks have color profiles? If so, how would we load them?
