Epson - Xp 430 cartridge error

1.4
Details
Had my XP-430 for 2 yrs, of course I used a aftermarket cartridge once the originals ran out because Epson replacement cartridges were way to costly for what you get. Of course this year they sent out a update causing my printer to not recognize the aftermarket. Last Epson I will ever purchase! This is actually illegal and the should be fined!

Most printer manufacturers are now doing the same in an attempt to stop people from using non-OEM cartridges in an attempt to increase their cartridge sales. Gotta remember they don't make much on the printer itself, but through sales of their cartridges. Overall, a laser printer works out to be less costly even tho the cartridge for laser printers costs more initially.

Epson - Absolute ***, won't print black

1.0
Details
I understand a business needing to make money to survive, however flucking over your customers by requiring them to have ALL the color cartridges even when all you need is black is absolutely appalling. This product is complete garbage, even without this problem. I really hope the owner of this company or whoever decided this rule flucks themselves with a rusty broken metal rake. There is absolutely no reason to be so money hungry or just plain dumb that you would make this a rule in the setup of your product. And why do i need 100 words? Would you prefer I continue this rant? Because I'm pretty sure it will not.
