30 times cheaper than Epson
It's ink. I print with it. What else is there to say?
Well, quite a lot.
I haven't had any problems with it, no blocked jets so far. The cartridges I bought were made by Sira in China, contained 19ml of ink, and cost 96p delivered the day after I ordered them. Genuine Epson cartridges contain 7.4ml and cost £11 at PC World. Plus petrol. And are also made in China.
If you do the maths, the genuine ones cost £4.58 per 100 pages, these Sira ones cost 15.6p per 100 pages. That's just the ink costs.
Epson reason that genuine cartridges have better light-fast properties. That's the only real reason they cite. I don't care if my letters have faded a bit after 10 years (I sent them to someone else, it's their problem anyway) As for photos, I'd have to reprint them 30 times before Epson ink prices started to make sense financially (assuming their claims are correct).
If you like silly facts, in round figures, Vintage Champagne costs from £25 a litre, Sira ink costs £50 a litre, and Epson ink costs £1,500 a litre (OK actually £1,486). And you thought petrol was expensive :-)
