I purchased an Epson WF-2830. The initial cartridges lasted almost
But when I purchased and replaced them, the same.
I printed out 75 pages of black and white and the black ink ran out.
The black ink cartridge, which Epson says has to be their brand
to maintain the warranty, and was their brand, cost $19.99.
That is 26.6 cents per page. I could get it done at Office Max
for .09 cents per page. The company is working reduced hours
because they say of the virus. I cannot contact them tonight, but I can
tell anyone else never to buy Epson.
I was buying this in lieu of a much more expensive product for
printing art and also documents.
Thank God I didn't buy that from them.
I had seen that those printers were pretty cost effective but
I had assumed the more mundane would be an industry average at
least. Not so.
I will not be looking into Epson again for anything but an explanation.
User's recommendation: Don't buy from a company that won't allow you to cut costs anyway you can. And don't buy from Epson.
Preferred solution: Price reduction.
Epson Pros: Product works, Cost way too high for ink.
