I will NEVER buy another product from EPSON and am sharing my issues with everyone I know and on social media. I have the same exact issue as everyone else here has been writing about.

Running an update that only served to force me to use THEIR ink should absolutely be illegal.

I consider EPSON an evil business that uses predatory tactics.

I never would have purchased this printer if I had known they would secretly sabotage it by making it useless after the time when I could not return it. Forcing people to use their extremely overpriced in or else!

To me it's no different the taking your car in for a quick update and secretly having the company fix it so you could only buy THEIR brand of premium gas!

Product or Service Mentioned: Epson Ink Cartridge.

Reason of review: Secret upate to force only thier ink.

Monetary Loss: $150.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

Epson Pros: Printer worked until they sabotaged it with an update, Prinkter worked until the update that sabotaged it.

Epson Cons: Epson preditory tactics used on customers.
