Now that's expensive ink. I have a pixma 6000d and use the abacuus private ink (generic). I have been having isuues with the stuff here lately. Do the carts get old after sitting in climate controlled house for 6 mos/
garmoon..Can't really say on your issues..But i think unopened ink has a shelf life of about 2yrs,but once instaled only 6mons.Never had a problem myself.I use about 3 sets a month.I'm wearing out my printer
ok guys your the pros here on the epson printers.
i have the R320. have had it for about 6 months now.. im am into my 2nd set of carts. ive used about a 1/4 of the black and yellow, out of the second set.. no biggy... i just bought some replacement carts from meritline.. got 12 carts 2 sets. thought they were the ridisc carts.. but half were ridisc and the other half are G&G.. are these any good or am i going to have problems with them?
ive sent a PM to Alkohol about his settings for the printer. ChrisC586 mentioned up in a earlier post about Alkohols setting's beeing real good as far as saveing ink... does anyone know of the settings and what they are.. i have never messed with the printer since i have had it other than changeing out carts...any help would be appreciated.
Yeah I thought so too about the unopened ink. I don't use that much. I've got a cyan print head slightly clogged on my Canon pixma, using abacus' generic inks. Removed printhead and tried cleaning with alcohol and air slightly better.
The generic is so cheap for my Canon I use the best print setting , because at $1.59 a cart = free ink.
You'll probably run out of black and yellow first, no matter what settings you use. I always run out of yellow first. That's because the only printing I use my R200 for is printable dvds, dvd covers, and occasionally a photo or two. Regular pages of type get printed out on the HP printer. That conserves my black ink, in my R200, a little. )
garmoon..Don't know about the ink for your printer,but so far I've had good luck with their ink.But here of late I'VE been getting my ink frm Meritline,its been less expensive..But keep in mind nothing is going to look as good as the original.A copy is always a copy.All in all I'm happy with what can be done
YA might try letting the printer run through its charge & or clean cycle about a 1/2 doz times in a row see if that helps.Might be like a blood clot.Did U by chance try a different cartridge?
oh yes changed both the problem colors. I have it about sorted now. Is the ink you're using that OA100 brand. Meritline sell BC-6 carts for less than $1.59each? I'll have to check that out. Especially if different generic and cheaper.
Generic inks from Meritline or Abacus look stunning when used with Taiyo Yuden Watershield Media. The high gloss finish actually looks better than original DVD media. The blacks are richer and the overall look is superior. High resolutions scans + Epson R200 series or R300 series + Generic Inks from Meritline or Abacus + Taiyo Yuden Watersheild Media = The best looking backup. I also use other printable media including shiny silver and regular Taiyo Yuden printables and although they look great too, the Taiyo Yuden Watersheilds, a bit pricey IMO, provide the best looking backup.
I just bought the R260 from BestBuy for $79.00.... now it's time to order some TY WaterShield media...
Everyone here has there own opinion of where to buy generic ink online.
From what it looks like it I'm going to buy it from Meritline! am I making a good choice?
This is going to be sweet!
Finally no more sharpie with my ugly handwriting...
I started to purchase the 48 pack from Meritline being it was .99 cents per cart on sale with the discount code but I think they added the $20 discount for the carts to the price of shipping when I went to checkout.
The shipping was $27.xx for UPS ground, about $20 higher than it should be, 48 carts isn't all that much weight.
I really don't need any colored ink at this time. I print lots of shipping labels with black ink only, wish there a good deal on just black carts.
Generic ink for the canon ip4300 .... well seeing as I refill my own chart 12 refills of all 4 chart will cost me about $75 cnd .... thats taxes and delivered to my door.

I had got my ink for my epson R300 here too and never had an problem and yes they sell chartrages too though I don't see any for the canon right now though they do have ink for the R300 at $4.95 cnd or us / chart and shipping is free on orders over $50
you should try meritline for your carts for the epson.. they have awsome deals on them get the carts for a buck. cant beat that i just got 12 of them(2 sets of 6) shipped was 18 dollars includes shipping.
No, but it will take a bigger box, to put them all in. They don't only go by actual weight, but also by the amount of space the package takes up. They call it DIM (dimension size). They could probably get two smaller boxes, in the space your one box takes up. They have a formula for figuring the cost, according to dim weight. Whichever way they make the most money (actual weight or dim weight), is how the sender will be charged. Therefore, how you'll be charged.
I used to work for DHL as a courier. So, I know how they do it. They all (DHL, UPS, FedEx) do it this way. You think that was expensive? Have them send it "Next Day Air"! )
Hows it going JVC havent seen ya IN THE DIVE...lol
yea next day air is like 4 times the price of the item your getting we ship out UPS everyday i see all the prices it is unreal
Do TY watershield CD's have a Premium Surface?
On my R260 to print I have two choices:
Media type: CD/DVD or CD/Premium Surface
if I click on CD/Premium Surface it will tell me that the CD needs to dry about 24 hours and it has to be compatible....
What does that setting do? drop more ink?
sorry to take so long to reply..lol
on the first set of carts ive used. i have gotten 50 disc and about 25 full dvd covers and another 2 partial covers along with other printing. documents, kids stuff ect....
Well after doing some test with the settings for my R260 and using TY WaterShield CD-R media the quality it's amazing.
My settings are:
on this settings it will bleed outside just a tiny bit so I know I got good coverage and then after 10 minutes I will come with a cotton swab and clean the excess ink of and they turn out great....
look for yourself....
thank you guys for all the help.
They look awesome!! I can't wait till my supply of matte and reg hub shiny's run out so I can get some glossy discs.
