Epson or Jettec

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers (More info?)

Time has come to get new cartridges in my Epsom R210 (R200) and I can
either go with the original Epson, or the Jettec replacements.

The cost difference in New Zealand isn't great, but the thought of
getting a 30% ink increase with the Jettec is attractive.

Has anyone using a Epson R210 (R200)tried the Jettec cartridges? If so
what is your opinion of the printed photo quality, and did you get the
increased ink amount as advertised?

Regards,
John.

    Just checked with DSE price, you save some 30%, I would think that is Great
    saving, plus the extra 30% more ink..

    Well now you can check with these two web sites.

    http://computerone.co.nz/store/customer/home.php?cat=91&page=4 (this
    is the web site that you have previously given for JetTec cartridges).

    6 JetTec Cartridges at $18.90 each = $113.04. Delivered by snail mail
    (courier extra).

    https://www.consumables.co.nz/store/web/viewCat_h.asp?idCategory=1334

    6 Epson Cartridges total price $129.95. This includes a free 25 sheet
    photo paper pack plus free courier anywhere in NZ.

    Hardly a 30% saving - in fact if you take the photo paper and courier
    into the sum, the Epson cartridges work out cheaper.

    Now to get back to my original message - have you used the JetTec
    cartridges in the R210 (R200) and if so, how did they compare with the
    original Epson cartridges?

    Regards,
    John.
