Epson Finally Brings Back the Black

I bought two but will there be another ink drought again?

Finally! Epson made the Black Color 73N Ink Cartridges available for TX110 printer owners like me. We know how most printers work and they won’t produce any output if you lack one cartridge.¬† The black printer cassettes¬† were delivered last Saturday (June 7th) but my friends at Silicon Valley at the Forum Robinsons Mall said only 20 were delivered. So after that, no word if it was going to be replenished. I bought two.

Imagine how many printer models will be affected without this cartridges

Those should last me about three months of four but as my observations tell me, it won’t last that long because these vials aren’t made like they used to. According to my observations, these ink containers used to last four months of printing black documents but now you’d be lucky to get two months out of these.

If you’re like me and would like to bring this issue up with Epson Philippines, you can contact them here.

Epson: Long on Sucess but Short On…

Epson Ink CartridgesAre you an Epson color-printer user? Have you ever noticed how fast your ink cartridge runs out even though you haven’t printed enough color work from these cassettes? Each charge cost around PhP450 x 4 cartridges = Pain in the wallet.

Back in 2007 when my wife and I were preparing for our wedding day, we made our entire 150+ invitations out of an Epson Photo Stylus Printer.  I only used up three to four cartridges per color. We printed the invites, the name cards, personalized wedding vows, and signboards, however, I only printed no more than fifteen letter-size color outputs from these cartridges using my Epson Stylus TX110.

Are you a long-time Epson printer user? Have you noticed the same drop in the number of outputs? Do you notice how fast the ink cartridges fall to its empty levels after applying a printer head cleaning round? What’s your insight?

Epson needs to know because buying ink cartridges is no joke.
