The high capacity compatible 16XL black ink cartridge is now available online with a price busting 500 pages for as little as less than one cent per page @ 5% coverage. This incredible value for the compatible version of the Epson cartridge is estimated to drive sales through the roof in the UK and Ireland. The 16XL comes in four ink colours, black, cyan, magenta and yellow. The black ink cartridge can print up to 500 pages with the colours each printing up to 450 pages @ 5% coverage. 5% coverage generally represents a page of text with double line spacing; if images or graphics are printed then the number of pages will be less.
High quality compatible Epson 16XL ink cartridges are manufactured by third-party suppliers and sold online in Ireland and the UK. These suppliers strive to match the ISO standards of the original brand cartridges, giving reliability to the end user. A typical printer using the 16XL ink such as the Epson WorkForce WF-2530WF is ideal for the home user or small office. This printer is a 4-in-1 with ADF and features Epson Connect and is also Wi-Fi enabled.
If you are planning to buy a new printer in 2016 one brand you should certainly consider is Epson. Of course the first thing to consider when buying a new printer is whether the printer is what you require and how much can you afford to spend. The printer will have to do what you want it to do. In other words, is it for occasional home use, for a busy household with school attending children or is it for the office? If it is for the busy home user where more than one person is using the printer then it’s likely that an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier will be the best bet. Epson produce this printer and label it as a small-in-one compact printer and the latest batch of Epson Expression printers are the best sellers to date. This range of printer uses four ink cartridges, T1811 black, T1812 cyan, T1813 magenta and T1814 yellow. The beauty of the four-cartridge system is that you can replace the ink cartridges individually as they run out and not a full set of inks as was the case in other printers.
For example if we choose the Epson XP-412 as a typical all-in-one we can examine its key features. This printer has wireless printing, a colour LCD touch panel is very compact an environmentally has a small carbon footprint. The need to reduce the overall size of printers is to make the printer less of an obstacle on a desk and the size of the printer has no bearing on the performance of this excellent home printer. This neat and stylish black gloss printer houses it’s flatbed scanner under a textured lid with a typical gravity fed vertical Epson paper feed. On the bottom left there is an input for SD or memory Card sticks but unfortunately not a USB socket. A useful feature of this printer is that it supports wi-fi Direct and Airprint.
Access to the ink cartridges is under the scanner section and with the touch panel on the front it is easy to access them to insert replacement cartridges. The print speeds run approximately at almost 9 pages per minute for black and 4.5 pages per minute for colour. However, printing in draft mode will increase your pages per minute by one.
For general purpose every day printing the Epson XP-412 is perfect and compares favourably with it’s HP and Canon rivals. The over-riding factor with this print is the cost of running this printer with compatible ink cartridges. The non-original version of these printer cartridges are available online for as little as €1 each + VAT. Overall Epson’s XP-412 printer is a neat and well-designed printer that will print from most mobile devices and is definitely worth putting on your short list.
It’s rumoured that one of the most popular Christmas gifts this year for students is a new printer to facilitate the printing of their assignments and boarding passes for their well earn half-term trips! On a serious note, the home printer is a practical Christmas gift for any household, and one that is becoming more and more common.
If we are choosing a printer as a gift there are several factors to consider. Firstly, the printer will need to suit the needs of the user, if it’s a home user then the printer will probably need to be colour and be able to print, scan and copy. The print speed of this printer may not be that important, but, the cost of the ink cartridges certainly will. In fact, one of the most important factors when considering buying a printer as a gift is, the running cost for the person who receives the printer. It might be OK to buy a bargain printer for a friend or loved one, but, if the running costs are astronomical then any good intentions on the part of the buyer are soon lost.
There are a couple of good tips to consider before purchasing the printer, for example, how much will the replacement ink cartridges cost and more importantly, will the printer accept compatible ink cartridges? This information will be available from any good ink seller and is very important, as some printers are more prone to rejecting compatible ink cartridges than others. What are the best printers to consider this year?
Well, we think that if you consider buying the Epson Expression XP range then you won’t go far wrong. This all-in-one range of printers is perfect for the home user or small office. They accept four individual ink cartridges, black, cyan, magenta and yellow and are all individually replaceable which makes it more cost effective than having to replace a full set of cartridges. The Epson printers are also known to be compatible ink friendly and do not give any real issues when it comes to accepting them.
Also, this time of the year lends itself to real bargains when it comes to printers’ as the more popular Christmas gifts are more likely to be TV’s or iPhones. Of course, Epson aren’t the only printers available but to give a more balanced view we also recommend Canon and Brother printers as good presents as they too will offer good value when used with compatible replacement cartridges. So, to give the perfect Christmas gift this year why not give a printer that has all the facilities that modern day life requires such as wireless printing and will be cost effective to run.
The original brand Epson T1291 black ink cartridge can retail for as much as €10 online or cost even more if you buy it in the high street. It would seem utter madness to spend that sort of money on an ink cartridge when you buy a perfectly good compatible version of the cartridge for €1 online – yes, that’s €1 (when bought as part of a 20 cartridge pack).
If the price is so low does that mean there is something wrong with the cartridge? Well now, the proof is in the pudding and if you are offered a money-back guarantee with the cartridge what have you go to lose? The T1291 ink cartridge is one of four ink cartridges that work alongside each other in the particular range of printers, the other colours being cyan, magenta and yellow. The pack of four cartridges is known as the T1295, and again, can be bought for as little as €1 when bought a part of a 20 cartridge multipack.
Epson T1295 ink work in each of the following printers:
With so many Epson printers using the T1291 ink cartridge it’s no wonder that the original purchase price of the printer was good value. It’s thought that the clever marketing tactic by Epson was to pitch the printer at a low price and then recoup some of its profits by the sale of the original brand Epson printer ink. Of course, the real clever bit can be on the part of the buyer if they buy the printer at a knock-down price and run it on the compatible ink cartridges for €1 each! The print quality of the compatible ink cartridge is fine for everyday printing with virtually no difference in the print quality. In fairness, the only difference would be if you were intending to print photo quality prints, and them to remain without any fading for years to come. If this is the case then it’s fair to say you would be better with the originals but for everything else compatibles are fine.
The Epson T0711 ink cartridge is used in many Epson small-in-one printers and has become one of the biggest selling Epson ink cartridges of all time. The T0711 ink cartridges are black although the printer uses four colours in total, as well as the black there is the T0712 Cyan, T0713 Magenta and T0714 Yellow. The full set of four cartridges bought as a pack is labelled as the Epson T0715 ink cartridges. There are basically two types of printer ink you can buy on the market at the moment. Firstly, the original brand ink manufactured by Epson and the compatible version of the same inks produced by a third-party manufacturer.
The cost of a set of Epson T017 original brand cartridges bought online can cost as much as €50 with a total of 24ml of ink in the four ink cartridges. In complete contrast the compatible version of the same pack of cartridges are available for a little over €1 with low cost delivery when you buy five packs, so that’s actually 40 compatible ink cartridges for the same price as 4 original brand ink cartridges. Not only that, but the ink volume of the compatible cartridges is 52ml and that is over double the ink volume of the originals! No wonder many people have already switched to the compatible version of the T0711 cartridges.
Buying compatible SX215 ink is a typical example of how to save money on your printing using these high quality non-original cartridges that are ideal for every day printing at home and in the office. The compatible SX200 ink cartridges are equally good value at just over €1 per cartridge and again for general-purpose printing it’s the perfect price to pay for your ink cartridges.
In the past some users may have had concerns over using the compatible version of any ink cartridges but there is no need for concern these days as the non-original cartridges are manufactured to the same high ISO standard as the original cartridges. All reputable suppliers of the compatible inks will offer a money-back guarantee on their cartridges in an effort to give peace of mind to their customers. The savings to be gained by using the compatible version of the Epson T0711 for a busy home of small office are massive and can help put a dent in the end of year expenses for printer ink.
Initially when you change over, most likely your black cartridge first, you may get the ink status monitor showing an error with RED X over the black ink section. This will prevent your printing job taking place.
The software is detecting non-Epson cartridges and will be offering you opportunities to only use Epson ink. To resolve this issue, you can try the following actions:
- If you still have it, replace the original Epson T1811 ink cartridge in the tray
- Close the lid
- Power down the printer, leave it off power for 2 minutes
- Power up the printer
- Raise the lid on printer so you can see the ink carousel
- Press the ink button on front right (has a teardrop image)
- The ink carousel will go to an arrow pointer in the middle of the track
This pointer tells you which cartridge to replace first. Replace this one now with the compatible cartridge. Wipe the chip area inside the ink tray and on your cartridge first.
