I avoid buying any EPSON product because of this issue. I encountered the same problem and is just sad that EPSON it's allowed to rip off consumers in this manner.

Printers are cheap to purchase but can get expensive to use on a regular basis due to the high cost of the ink cartridges. This applies to ALL printer manufacturers, not just Epson.

Years ago I could refill the cartridges by buying the ink in an 8 oz. or so bottle and refilling them with a syringe. No more. They have re-designed the cartridges to preclude this operation.

You might consider buying a laser printer if all you use is black ink. The initial cost of the cartridge is higher than an inkjet but they tend to last alot longer than the normal inkjet printers.

As I recall, HP was also doing something of the kind a while back, at least on some of their printers. In any event, I have found that it is probably best to use the manufacturer's ink instead of off-brand or refilled cartridges.

I had far too many problems with non-brand ink cartridges in the past.

However, as you probably have guessed, they make their money on the ink cartridges, not the printers themselves. Gotta make a buck.

When I replace a cartridge and it checks levels, the new cartridges NEver show full! Always different levels. Can only print maybe 5 pics and 4 letters and black runs out. This is with the high capacity cartridges. Epsom is into the business of *** their customers and really only selling cartridges! No more for me!!!

Don't buy from ClickInks

I bought almost $100. worth of print cartridges for my home printer, an Epson Workforce WF-2660 and when they arrived they did not fit my printer. I shipped them back to the company's Florida address for refund or replacement, but nothing happened for over a month. When I sent an e-mail to customer service, they insisted I provide the shipping receipt--I had already provided the receipt for the printer cartridges. When I could not find the shipping receipt, they told me I was out of luck--they would not send a refund or replacement cartridges. This was a very expensive lesson--do NOT do business with ClickInks!

Epson printer ink bad value

I bought an Epson XP630 printer about 6months ago for school. It seemed a good value and indeed it does do a good job of printing and scanning. However, the ink system is a total rip-off. I have already spent more on ink than the for the printer itself, and I really don't print much at all. Here's one example: My cyan was depleted, so I replaced it. After loading it (just that one!), ALL the other cartridge levels dropped at least 10%. Which then caused the yellow to be depleted, even though I hadn't printed a single page yet. So then I had to replace the yellow, and sure enough, ALL the cartridges dropped again. Now the black, which this morning had about 40% left, is at about 10%. It just dumps inks from all the cartridges! WITHOUT printing a single page! I have taken the advice of other commenters to NEVER turn the printer off (it dumps a lot of ink every time it powers on/off). I also specify gray scale printing for anything black&white, since I've learned that even black text will use the color inks. I also reduce the quality to deliver less ink-- on default it uses way more than is necessary. With these settings I estimate I can get about 100 pages of black text, still less than the advertised estimated capacity. A total scam. And because of their fancy-schmancy microchips, you cannot refill the cartridges or use an after-market supplier. Also you might want to disable auto-update of settings, because they keep finding ways to take away features. Like, at first I had the option to continue printing using the photo-black cartridge if the regular black ran out, but after "updating" this option has been removed. Gee, thanks. Since I never print photos this means the only way I use the photo-black is when the printer dumps ink to waste... Caveat emptor.
