> > When I said "about $50-$60 per set (printer + fake-cartridge + filled-side-ink-containers)" I meant for almost any brand, not limited to Epson. The Epson offer is attractive but many people still opt for even lower-end printers and inks (but quality usually are good at least for the eyes), if inks break parts or make the printers' life shorter, so be it. They can afford to again spend another $60 even twice or thrice more a year no problem. Some still have to look for dictionary to search the meaning of "warranty". To others it means "unaffordable long wait for repair time", so you know, that's just what I'm saying,...
