We can afford to buy two units for each Canadian engineers working here 3 times each during their 2 years of overseas contracts, and while they're on vacations twice a year to Bali the secretaries and friends are 'allowed' to abuse the inks for personal Facebook posts prints - l o l

Hi David,

Read my reply to Tushar. Seems like if I purhase ink from 3rd party sources I null and void
the printer warranty over here. I checked with HP as well and you must use their original ink
or your warranty is compromized.
Here original ink bottles cost close to $100.00 not under $1.50.

I hate to repeat myself, but for most clients I deal with they range from 20 users at the low end
to 300 network users on some larger sites. In some of my larger clients with 500-600 users,
you cannot put 600 printers in place, one for each user.

Even for my business, since I cannot use non-original manufacturer ink and the ink cost it seems
over here is 100 times what you can use from 3rd party suppliers, I use laser printers.

As a real world example I sold a client here a 8000 Pro Inkjet printer. The ink the client used
on their first refill was 3rd party ink. The ink plugged the Inkjet hose assembly.
The Inkjet although only 6 weeks old was not covered under warranty.
The hose and tracking assembly priced out at $99.99 US and the printer only cost $129.00.
Since the warranty was already voided, the client had to purchase a new unit.

This point again goes back to my OP on the topic of replacement part pricing that does not
make any sense at all.

Thread is getting off track here my friends. Let's just agree that in the case of Epson the
ink bottle usage it seems was only released in the east part of the globe.

Maybe someone over here in the US and Canada can comment on this please?
