I have an Epson XP-830 and use ink bought on Ebay with no problems. The seller is E-Z INK. A few weeks ago, I got an URGENT update notice from Epson. As usual, I checked online to see if anyone had a problem with the update. Good thing, because numerous posters said said the "update" killed the ability to use generic ink. 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?
Never had an update on anything actually improve anything, usually causes some problem.
With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
