    Epson ET8550 - What compatible inks and the quality of them ?

    The 8550 OEM inks are pretty cheap considering the amount that you get and how long it lasts, and their expiration dates are 3-4 years out.

    First time using ArgyllCMS

    Hi, I'm a first time user of Argyll trying to create an ICC profile. Charts created fine, but when I go to scan, Argyll doesn't recognize my i1Pro2. What am I doing wrong? Driver missing? UPDATE: I just noticed that The i1Pro is installed as an "X-Rite Device" in Device Manager instead of an...

    New Epson Photo printers

    I doubt that they will do B&W photos as well as the 8550 with the lack of gray ink.

    New (used) i1PRO2 owner

    I picked up a used i1PRO2, but the iProfiler software won't let me create ICC profiles because it's not licensed for it. How do I go about fixing this? Cost? I downloaded Argyll but am having trouble figuring out how to install. Thanks...

    ET-8550 incoming

    After using this printer now for a little more than a week, I don't know if I could go back to a cartridge-based printer. Ink management is pretty much a thing of the past, and the print quality is beyond what I expected.

    LD Products ink?

    I just got an Epson ET-8550 and will be using OEM with it. I was inquiring about LD for my former Canon printer.

    ET-8550 incoming

    I got the 8550 set up and all I can say is WOW. I was using a Canon TS9020 (also a 6-ink printer) and I had the hardest time color matching what I saw on my monitor. That and the pain of constantly filling carts. This Epson matched my monitor right off the bat. Photos are stunning compared to...

    Ink supply companies

    If that's the case they should shut down their web site.

    Ink supply companies

    They used to be quite decent for bulk inks and supplies, but I haven't ordered from them for several years. I use Precision Colors now.

    Ink supply companies

    UPDATE: I finally got a response from them. They are not selling bulk because of supply and quality issues. They actually haven't been selling bulk for quite some time. They are selling refilled carts. Where thery're getting the ink for those is anybody's guess.

    Ink supply companies

    I used to get all of my bulk ink and supplies from them. Their web site now just shows refilled cartridges for sale. They have a FB page (inksupply.com), but nothing's been posted on it since 2016. I e-mailed them a couple of time asking if they are still in business - no response. They have...

    Refurbished Printhead Locked

    Refurbs are a gamble. I got a refurb for my TS9020 and the printer didn't even recognize it. Returned it and got a new one. All good.

    Best place to buy QY6-0084 print head for Canon Pro 100

    There is a guy on the big auction house that sells new in box, genuine Canon print heads (not cheap). I just got one for my TS9020 and it is the real deal. He also has the Pro-100 head.
