    Expensive & Goes Quickly - No Fault of Product

    Printers are much less expensive than the print cartridges it takes to operate them. The Epson XP-430 printer is a high-quality, yet inexpensive, printer. The print cartridges are not cheap, however. Print quality is excellent. Well worth it if you only print occasionally. Put the price of the cartridges with the printer price, however, and you may wish to think again before buying this printer. NO fault with the cartridges whatsoever; each one works right out of the packaging.

    Much needed combo

    I have been purchasing standard capacity cartridges so far which doesn't last much long especially black ink even in fast draft mode. This combo is ideal as it gives the flexibility of a slightly larger capacity for black cartridge and standard capacity for the color cartridges. Regardless, the price of these are quite expensive and cheaper to buy a new printer rather than replacing the cartridges.

    I purchased this Epson printer on Jan. 29 after reading many product reviews on many different sites. I am completely satisfied with my purchase. I also purchased a package of Epson ink containing 1 black XL cartridge, and 1 each of the 3 color cartridges. I haven't replaced any of the original cartridges that came with the printer; so it appears that it doesn't use an excessive amount of ink. I would purchase this printer again without hesitation.

    The Right Ink for the Right Printer

    We have tried several printers through the years and most have not lasted nearly as long as we would have liked, so we decided to upgrade to an Epson. We are very satisfied. We wanted to purchase the qualifying ink for this particular printer plus we wanted the ink supply to be longer lasting, thus the XL size pack was perfect, and having all the colors including the black has worked quite well for us and economically .

    Print quality is good but unfortunately cartridges won't last. After printing and average of 10 color pages ink levels are reduced significantly. It can get really expensive to print in color. Was expecting at least to be able to print 15 pages before replacing cartridges. DO NOT BUY if you're buying to use for school projects. Is cheaper to print at any office supply stores.

    I try not to print every document to save the trees, but I would say I print my fair share of documents. When I print, the quality of the Epson ink is excellent. My printer came with starter ink and last week I replaced the black ink. I've had the printer for about 2 months. Compared to other ink and printers I have had, this ink lasts longer than what I've used in the past.

    Epson 288xl ink

    I regret purchasing this printer. The ink does not last at all. I bought the xl multi color pack and printed about 15 pages black and white and it's already finished. It's not worth the money. I spent $65 for the 4 pack XL toner and didn't last.

    I like that this ink package was available. It has a large black cartridge which is great since I print B&W most of the time. Only problem is that with the colors having separate cartridges, you find you need one color more than another, and the color cartridges aren't available to purchase separately. At least not at Best Buy.

    I have no problems with the quality of this. It works great for Epson. My only complaint is, I can buy a new printer cheaper than buying the replacement ink. I don't trust the off brand ink refills. I had one printer ruined by one. I guess just shop around for the best price. Or, buy a new printer next time you need ink.

    Although it's probably the most expensive liquid on the planet per gallon, they still can't seem to make the ink last longer. I hate buying ink. I only do because my fax machine won't work without it to print the confirmation page. Le sigh one day I'll own stock in printer ink. I only did this review for the points lol

    Used cartridges. Sealed box

    To my surprise the Epson cartridges were used (plastic seal punctured and individual cartridge bag opened even though the box was sealed by manufacturer. As I did not have my B.B. receipt, I made a direct complaint to manufacturer and they kindly sent me new and sealed cartridges after a quick investigation.

    The multi-pack Epson 99 printer ink I purchased is fine. The Rockaway store did not have any Epson 98 Black ink cartridges in stock which I thought was lame on their part. Perhaps I will order on-line instead or call ahead to check if the store has what I need before I make another fruitless trip.

    I love this cartridge as it has tremendously increased the life of my printer and printing capacities. The printer cartridges that come with the printer are sample sizes, the XL version that I purchased here has lasted me months now and I fee like it was a good purchase.

    This is a wireless printer and it has already paid for itself. I have only had it for 6 weeks and it is easy to use and efficient. The Ink is spendy, though what I saved on the computer and the number of sheets I can print on one set of cartridges makes this a small issue. A great value.

    I like the extra capacity Edson cartridges for my printer. They are a little bit more in price, but last longer than the standard ones. I will continue to purchase them until the printer breaks.

    I really like the Epson brand ink jet printer cartridge. They are really worth the money and I find Best Buy has a great selection and great value for the money. I will only use Epson brand ink jet printer cartridge because of their reputation.

    Great price for all of these inks! I will say though, I was under the impression that ALL the inks would be XL, however, just the Black is. I just misread the box. With a quick glance, someone else might make the same mistake.

    I was disappointed with Best buy as it seems every time i go in to purchase just one color they are out.This forces me to buy the multi pack which i dont want to do. This seems to be a norm in the Concord Nh store.and the last visit i had to buy the XL pack which cost more.

    Ink for Printer

    Bought my son an Epson printer for college at a great price and then bought this spare ink since I was told the ink that comes with the printer out of the box does not last long. However, I don't think my son has had to replace it yet - not enough papers so far.
