I don't usually see printer questions on these forums, but hopefully I can post them. Firstly, I am fed up with the speed at which my printer seems to be using ink. It seems to run out unbelievably fast, and i've read somewhere that the Epson Status Monitor tells the user it's out of ink, when in fact there is at least 25% still remaining. I agree with this. Is there a work around to this problem, or maybe an alternative to the Epson Status Monitor? Also, I am thinking about buying some new inks, but I feel it would be better to purchase them online rather than in stores, because of the huge price difference. I am thinking of purchasing from www.bigink.co.uk , but I am unsure on what the quality is like, because as far as i'm aware they are not official cartridges. Has anyone had any success with cartridges that arn't branded by Epson? I am also stuck to decide whether I should buy a pack of 4 sets of cartridges (all colours obviously) from here http://www.bigink.co.uk/products.php?arg[productid]=142&name=Epson+compatible.+Pack+of+4+sets. or, a pack of two sets of high capacity cartridges from here http://www.prink.co.uk/ink-cartridges/pages/epsonc84photo.htm I don't know how much ink in ml is in the basic Epson cartridges, so I can't work out which would be the better option. Can anyone help me here? Anyway, any help is appreciated for all my questions!
