Important Notice Epson R265 Compatible Ink Cartridges
(If you have previously used compatible inks in your R265 printer, without problem, then you can ignore this)
Before purchasing compatible ink cartridges for your Epson R265 printer, please read the following:
Not all Epson R265 printers are the same, so not all Epson R265 printers will accept compatible ink cartridges. This is not isolated to our brands of inks, but to compatible inks in general.
How will I know if my printer will accept the compatible T801 – T806 inks?
This all depends on when your printer was manufactured by Epson.
- If your printer was manufactured before 01 March 2007, then our current compatible inks will work.
- If your printer was manufactured after 01 April 2007, then the current compatible ink cartridges will not work with your printer and you will have to order Genuine OEM Epson Cartridges.
- If your printer was manufactured during March 2007, then the current compatible ink cartridges may or may not work, it all depends if you have the newer R265 version of printer. The compatibles only work with the
earlier, older version.
If you are unsure, we suggest you purchase just one compatible cartridge to test in your printer.
