Before the update, the printer would just say the cartridge wasn't factory and ask if I wanted to continue anyway. After the update, apparently the printer will no longer work when it notices the cartridge is no "factory". I have since disabled the ability of Epson software on the computer to contact Epson, and vice versa.
I truly believe that such practices should be illegal.
Would you buy a Honda, Ford or Toyota if the only place you could buy fuel was from a dealer?
Holy Cow!!!

I have been avoiding taking Epson printer upgrades on the theory it works just fine now, why mess with it?

I have tried to lock it out from upgrading, but it always gets around that somehow.
