“Low on Ink”? Taking a Look at the Epson Chip Resetter

Do you get a “low on ink” warning even though you know you have plenty of ink left in your Epson ink cartridges? Most printer brands, like Epson, are designed to hold a “chip” in their printers that forces consumers to buy Epson branded cartridges as these are recognized by the printer. What this means is that third-party Epson compatibles, refilled Epson ink cartridges and remanufactured Epson ink cartridges, might still continue to show a frustrating “low on ink” warning because the printer does not recognize them. Epson printers are known for their excellent quality, vibrant and crisp printing and a lot of this has got to do with their great ink and high quality ink cartridges. Especially, if you’re printing photos or high-resolution graphics for brochures, flyers and marketing material, you can count on an Epson printer and cartridge to do the job. However there are many reliable suppliers in the market today that offer Epson ink cartridges that meet or even exceed OEM, or branded quality. For major printer manufacturers like Epson, this is not good news. You see, printer manufacturers don’t make most of their money selling printers, they make their money selling ink and toner for […]

After all “the laser printer segment share is quite substantial if you look at the overall printer market.” Moorthy: We do agree that today a large number of customers still prefer the laser printers. But the fact is that inkjet printers started to grow in the last two years, especially among business users. It is going to grow further in the times to come.

The Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540: A No-Nonsense Inkjet Printer

If you run a home office or a small to medium sized enterprise and are printing a couple hundred or so pages a week of both black and white and colour then you need to check out this latest printer model release from Epson. You might have considered purchasing a laser printer for speed, efficiency and low-cost but what many users don’t realize is that newer inkjet models today are equipped for speed and can in many cases also be cost-effective. Many organizations choose laser toner printers as toner dries instantly and they can grab paper copies while they’re still hot and they won’t smudge. But today’s inkjets also sport inks that not only dry fast but give vibrant presentation and brochure worthy prints. So if you need to print a few copies everyday and need a printer that can crank out some excellent colour prints on the fly, then an inkjet can be the printer of choice for you. Laser printers that use colour toner are more suited for large scale applications and companies that print in high volumes – the cost per page is no doubt less, but you’ll need to print volumes to justify the cost of […]
