People are always on the lookout for cheap quality products. Thus, it is understandable that when cheaper ink cartridges from China become available, we are tempted to try them. But here’s a little caveat: Using ink cartridges other than the original will be more expensive in the long run. Below are some of the reasons why it is not always advisable to use cheaper substitutes for EpsonT200 ink cartridges:
One: The quality of the original Epson T200 ink is superior as it is fade-resistant and dries instantly. It delivers smudge resistant prints every time, which is something you may not find in remanufactured cartridges.
Two: Epson ink cartridges clones may not be compatible with Epson printers. Epson T200 ink cartridges support Epson Expression Home XP-200, Home XP-300, 310, 400, 410, Workfkorce WF 2520, 2530 and 2540 printers.
Three: Epson ink cartridge substitutes are not supported for refilling. Printer detection errors and leakages may occur after refilling.
Four: Cheaper substitutes may cause damage to the printer. Epson’s warranty does not cover damages when the original ink cartridges are not installed.
Five: When the original is not used, information about ink levels may not be displayed on the printer. The printer will also record the use of substitutes and will not allow use of service support in the future.
Considering the five factors above, it is best to use the original Epson T200 ink cartridges for reliable printing results. More importantly, it will ensure that the printer will last longer.
