    How much is new ink?

      • +10 votes

        Cheaper to buy the several printers instead of more ink

        • +26 votes

          Included ink is normally not full capacity. To avoid people doing this.

          • +7 votes

            @Owgasm: It's barely at any capacity. I bought one of these a few weeks ago and I printed 13 pages of one document before the tank was empty. I didn't expect to be able to print a novel but I at least thought I would get a little further out of the included tanks than that!

              @Magnastar: I haven’t purchased a printer in over 10 years. Last I bought one was some poo Hp one. It had half cartridges.
              I guess it’s getting worse

          Not when printers only have starter ink tanks.

        Better off spending a little more than that to buy a continuous ink supply system (such as this or this), which comes with 100 mL of ink for each colour.

          WTF is that!? I mean I see it, but never heard of them before, does it stay connected all the time or you just take it out to fill it form a large reservoir?

          •  

            @MrFrugalSpend: Yes they stay connected all the time

              Anyone have any problems with CISS or generally good value / worth it?

              •  

                @MrFrugalSpend: It depends on what you are printing.

                Laser is good for infrequent use as there is no ink to dry in the print head.

                CISS is good if you want to print lots of photos at home or on paper than cannot go through a laser printer.

                Anyone have any problems with CISS or generally good value / worth it?

                Pretty much the same cost as generic ink from ebay ($2.50 each cartridge if you get it from china/4weeks to wait for delivery)
                Except you have the initial setup costs, it is a retrofitted system compared to just generics (any simpleton can change ink cartridges), potentially a bit messy to set up.

                I guess you're supposed to know what ink you have if you DIY prints..
                I've not had a problem with generic ink from ebay + all the nice photos that I print are done quite cheaply at Kmart/Big W deals :)

          Epson makes continuous printers https://www.epson.com.au/products/printers_for_home/EcoTank/

          They will cost more than this printer plus a continuous ink supply system but there are no external tanks to knock over as everything is integrated.

          • +1 vote

            @spaceflight: Those CISS printers are very common in some parts of Asia, pretty much all consumer grade printers can be sold with CISS retrofitted. That's why Epson finally made their own built-in CISS models.

        • +3 votes

          I had nothing but trouble with the rihac system for an older Canon multifunction. Leaks, clogs and jams galore. I have used other CISS systems without any such issue.

            @syousef: Yeah as long as everything is working well its great. As soon as you get air in a line or a blockage the mess is incredible.

      I've had this printer (actually WF-2760) for more than 1 year, and I buy generic ink on eBay for $15 a pack with the 3 colors + 2 black ones.

      For example ($13.13): https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5-x-220XL-220-XL-Inkjet-for-Epso...

      "It may damage the printer" they say.
      With the money I save in a single order I could buy another printer or two. And I've ordered multiple times now.

        I do the same. Also have this printer and use it a lot.

      •  

        Are those ink cartridges compatible with the latest firmware?

      I would recommend against buying an inkjet printer. Buy a Brother mono laser instead. Family saved about $200/year on ink and haven’t noticed the inability to print.

      YES, FOUR… There is one Yellow, one Cyan, one Magenta and… a BLACK.

        Those would be starter ink I presume? As in, it runs out quicker than a refill would.

    Choice rated this at 67% which is a good score, though did not hit the “recommended” minimum of 70%

      Imagine if an ebay seller had a 67 or 70% feedback score. People call 98% or even 99.0% sellers untrustworthy.

    This is one of the few model left that have ink without chips. It also supports google cloud print and scan to cloud. I absolutely love it. Get a 5 pack (CMYKK) INK from ebay for approx $20 delivered.

    •  

      Link to the refill kit please?

    • +6 votes

      It does have chip on the cartridge, the 5 pack from ebay is also chipped albeit hacked.
      As long as you don't update the firmware, it's all good. I made a mistake of updating the firmware once, and found previously bought ebay ink not working anymore.

      •  

        I just bought this printer and it wont let me skip the part of the installation where it wants to install the latest firmware.

    •  

      This is one of the few model left that have ink without chips.

      WRONG. The ink cartridges definitely have chips in them.

      The non-genuine cartridges with fake chips sometimes don't show the ink levels correctly. So perhaps the only way you'll know that you have run out of ink is when the ink runs out.

      • -3 votes

        The non genuine cartridges don't show the ink level correctly because they are not filled correctly.

        The chip tells the printer what size cartridge you have put in so the printer knows how much ink is in the cartridge.
        The printer counts for much ink is used to know the level.

        If the cartridge is filled to low or the chip is set wrong then it will run out of ink before the printer thinks it should.

      I have the same printer and this is super annoying. Of course it always happens when you need to print something urgently. I don't think we should encourage this behaviour from printer vendors and the only way to stop it is not buying.

    Worth it to also get the $20 cashback on ink? I'm aware that it would be better in general to get ink from ebay, but that presumably would also come with some chance of the ink not working.

      Cashback is only for purchases from the harvey norman group - save 5% but lose $50…

      OP might want to add this to the description in case people try to get it price beat without reading the cashback terms and conditions - I've asked mods to add it with a description report. Great deal.

      May depend on the firmware, mine just prompts, and asks if I wish to continue printing in greyscale, however others report it won't print.

      My current Epson Workforce 545 does this, which is why it hasn't been used in years.

        I know, most do, but even the cheaper aftermarket on some of these actually costs more for lower end models.

        I've also bought many dud ebay inks for my old Epson Printer back in the day… I'd rather stick to a store as opposed to some here today gone tomorrow ebay seller.
