AFAIK Octoink gives discount on their inks if you send your OEM carts in. Shipping them to Jose Rodriguez would make him happy just as well, although I don't know if he still buys them in - the market is dwindling. He used to sell modified carts that accept the 3rd party one-time chips.Is there any market for complete and empty set of PRO-1 original cartridges ?
Jose just got a second piece last week, so he might be changing his opinion (or not). While he hates this very expensive girlfriend, he is still willing to get his hands dirty with her... old love never rusts!Jose just hates the PRO-1....
everybody hates PRO-1....me too
This printer was run without due care or attention to the nozzle check, when there is an issue with a few clogs then a normal head clean usually solves the problem and normal printing can resume without causing any damage to the nozzles..Only 800 pages and reaching End of Life makes me sad...
No that’s not correct, non OEM’s can work just as well, but like everything else you buy, there are very poor ink tanks out there too, and there might not be pigment ink them either, only dye, buy cheap, pay twice., I would never-ever put non-OEM cartridge inside the Pro-1 printer. They are significantly different in their built-quality, and they WILL kill your printer.
Jose Rodriguez does not buy Pro 1 ink tank, he use to get his spares free from a reliable source (Not anymore) and you can modify your cart yourself, but you’ll also have to purchase 1 time chips from AliExpress, so it’s not all straight forwards.I don't know if he still buys them in - the market is dwindling. He used to sell modified carts that accept the 3rd party one-time chips.
Lots of owners hate the Pro 1 simply because they don’t understand that it’s a professional photo printer and not a play thing, it fills that roll very well..everybody hates PRO-1....me too
It’s only expensive if you can’t afford to run it on OEM inks..While he hates this very expensive girlfriend
Now because of Brexit that avenue may be more expensive to get your supplies from , and you won’t know till you purchase something, beside octopus-office.de/shop/ is still a good place for all supplies..AFAIK Octoink gives discount on their inks
