I am looking for good, compatible cartridges for my Epson CX 5200 All-in-one
printer.

Can someone share his experience in using compatible cartridges that use
Epson quality ink and that do not give error messages when inserted?

Thanks

What error message? Are you talking about the warning message
indicating the non-Epson chipset/cartridge?

By law, you should not remove the warning message, it's all about
copyright (I guess). however, it does not affect anything, just a
"one-more-click-job".

I did use mediastreet.com and inkrepublic.com bulk ink system for
1280/1290 printer. it's great saving.

I suggest you can try several good ink system or cartridge:

Epson uses Epson quality ink. You take your chances with the rest.

Microland gave you a recommendation based on his (or her) actual use.
Measekite has no experience with aftermarket inks and, more importantly,
Epson aftermarket inks. Read his past posts to understand his position and
questionable credibility. In addition to the information you get from
people on this NG you can go to
http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/ where aftermarket inks and cartridges are
discussed, sign in, search the forum for Epson ink info (most people on that
forum are Canon users) and post a question as well. There are some Epson
users who answer questions on Nifty. You would be wise to also email Arthur
Entlich (fiind one of his recent postings for the email address) and ask him
for his epson print head cleaning manual which he will email to you. Good
information to have in the event that you have a maintenance problem in the
future.

Hi,

We've been using Inktek compatible cartridges for our Epson 740, 880,
C80, C82 and C84 for a couple of years for our more than 60 printers at
school without head clogs and very nice printing. These folks are in New
York city area.
They've proved reliable and have saved us an arm and a leg moneywise They
apparently have ink for the CX5200.

Walter - A request - After you purchase and use an aftermarket ink or
prefilled cartridge for a while would you please report back to this
newsgroup and also to
http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/

Sign in and post a message indicating the printer you are using, the vendor
from whom you purchased your ink or cartridges, and your experience with the
vendor and product. Your experience can help to guide others in their
purchase and use of aftermarket inks. It is best to read posts from
personal experience before making a purchase of these products. I started
using bulk ink to refill cartridges for my Canon i960 after reading a lot of
postings on several forums stating personal positive experience with
products from specific vendors. It was a great help and I ended up with
excellent results and no problem with my printer in nearly a year of use.

I expect Measekite to follow this post by telling you that you don't know
what you are getting as the vendor relabels someone elses product and
doesn't tell you the manufacturer, etc. Although this is generally true,
people have found vendors that have been reliable for many years and
delivered a product that has worked consistantly well for them. That is the
experience we need to transmit to each other as it is all "word-or-mouth."

The different label only makes a difference in the price.
This is like generic drugs verses big drug company rip-offs. You get the
same thing but at a very different price.

I've been using MediaStreet inks for my Epson 2200. I'm ready to throw them
all away and go back to Epson inks. Or where do I learn about other 3rd
party inks that actually work, are archival, and cost a lot less than Epson?

A Smart move. Who is the mfg/formulator of those inks? I bet they are
sold under many labels so people who buy them will suffer the same
problems you have because they are buying the same thing under a
different name.

Never listens to this idiot. He's a moron who's never ever used third
party inks. He has but one printer and hardly ever prints anything. He
is mentally unstable, lives in his mother's basement and by his own
admission weighs just under 300 lbs (he eats a lot of donuts).
Ng's are his only friends which he's constantly abuses (what are friends
for?).
He badly needs help but refuses to admit it while inflicting his
psychotic rants on unsuspecting posters in this ng.

Read other posters who daily use 3rd party inks successfully, justt as I
have for years without one single problem.

To help others who might be interested in using good compatable inks and
avoiding problem products could you indicate what you found unsuitable about
the MediStreet inks? Rather than a "Measekite" blanket indictment against
all third party products, it helps others to explain where you found the
product lacking. Description of color match problems? Clogging?

No information will help. This ink, mfg and formulated by WhoKnows, is
sold under many labels through many vendors. Since it is almost
impossible to know who sells what in this industry, there is a high
likelyhood you will get the same thing (headaches) from multiple
sources. The Churchgoers do not want to admit this. They just ignore
the facts. Especially Burtie Furtie aka photofreek in his nifty forum.

And there's the problem. You have a choice - you can have good inks
(Epson, Permajet as an independent for example) or you can have cheap
inks. Your choice.

Walter and Alan are looking for people who have experience with aftermarket
ink products Measekite rants against all aftermarket inks and carts with
the same tired misinformation. He has never purchased from any of the
vendors, nor has he ever used aftermarket inks. His personal experience is
with one Canon ip4000 and one HP inkjet printer, all with OEM inks. He has
absolutely zero experience with Epson printers. Why he continues with his
diatribe I don't know, but I hope that actual users of these products will
continue to post messages to this newsgroup whether their experience is
positive or negative, to help others decide if they want to use non-oem inks
and which vendors and products to consider. Personal experience counts,
Biased rants help no one.

www.permajet.com Independent British ink and paper makers/suppliers.
Excellent quality. They do cartridges for most Epsons. but the real
savings in terms of cost are if you splash out on a CIS system. You
don't really go to Permajet to save money unless you can afford a CIS
system. However, even their cartridges are better value than Epson.
The inks are excellent quality and are particularly useful if you
print a lot of B&W as their monochrome sets give superb results. The
papers are good too.

And no, I don't work for them in any capacity. Just a very satisfied
customer. ;-)

Are you using them as cartridges that were factory filled, are you
filling them yourself or are you using a CIS (continuous inking system)

What problems are you having? Have you reported them to MediaStreet
they might be aware of one or more color problems, which can
occasionally happen.

I've been talking to their tech support for months. But now they've stopped
answering my queries on the tech support site. I guess they know they can't
solve my problems. (scuffing of prints by the exit rollers, clogging).

What you obviously don't know is that the Epson 2200 is the US name
and the Epson 2100 is used everywhere else. So yes, they do. Otherwise
my Epson 2100 is operating on ghost ink ;-)

Use Epson ink. You paid a lot for the printer and you do not want to
damage it.

Epson is not a manufacturer of ink. They pay a 'contract ink
manufacturer", usually located in China (Epson is not a Chinese based
company) to manufacturer ink for them according to their specifications.
They then put an Epson label on the ink cartridges.
This gives Epson the legal rights to refer to the ink cartridges as
Epson OEM (original equipment of the manufacturer) labeled ink cartridges.
This does not explicitely imply that Epson actually manufactured the ink.
Is that what you're referring to when you say "use Epson ink"?

Demand a refund for the unused ink and the CIS.

If they can't resolve the problem they should at least return your money
so you can buy an alternative product.

Epson is the formulator of the ink. They monitor and control its mfg
and quality control. That is what I mean by Epson ink.

Not really. Epson pays a contract ink manufacturer to formulate,
manufacturer and check the quality (quality control) of their Epson
labeled inks.
Any contract ink manufacturer wiil do that for anyone who is willing to
pay the price.

Inkystinky (is you nickname Stinky or Inky? Mine, by the way is not
schmuck.) claims to have earned an MBA from Stanford. Measekite, you
should have adequate proficiency in English to know that the comma in my
posting after "Epson inks" had a modifying phrase, "OEM or aftermarket"
referring to EPSON INKS and merely states that you have no experience with
EPSON OEM or EPSON AFTERMARKET INKS. You just flunked the English
comprehension portion of the SAT exam. Back to bonehead English for you,
Stinky. Enough of your name calling, trying to find fault with all my
posts, and denying the validity of other people's experience.

NO (see - I have a caps lock key too), It is sadly amusing to see that when
someone points out an inconsistancy, error, or misinformation in your
non-contributory responses you don't have the decency or common sense to
admit it, much less apologize. You just escalate the insults.

Alan -- I have an Epson 2200 and had the same problem of roller marks on the
prints when I switched to Costco paper. It seemed to be the combination of
slow drying pigment ink and Costco paper. Problem solved by using dye based
ink -- much better colours (no muddy looking pigment colours). It the prints
last as long as I do then I'll be happy. The only fading I have seen is with
prints made by an old HP about 7 years ago. I have an Epson 1200, 2200, R200
and 870, all with CIS systems.

If that is the case you are better off with a Canon i9900 and Costco paper.
