| p.1 #7 · Epson replace cartidge ink use question |
That's the reason for my inquiry. I have three coming due at about the same time and was considering "beating the system" by changing all three at once. I have several 13x19 I need to print and knowing a cartridge can fail mid print is very disconcerting. Hate to waste the ink either way but if I screw a print must consider the paper waste as well.

I'm running a 3880 and for nearly 2 weeks it has been screaming at me that one cart is "dangerously" low. Message, flashing light, etc. Curious to see just how accurate this was I've continued to print. I've done (all full color on glossy media) 8 10x16, 10 8x10, and maybe 2 dozen 4x6. Still printing, light still blinking.
I'm coming to the conclusion that unless you are printing on truly expensive paper, running the cart dry is the way to go cause Epson certainly lets you know waaay in advance. If I were the suspicious type, I'd think Epson is trying to sell more ink.
