I read the old therad about the Epson ink cartige and that week my month old new Epson C60 printer ran out of ink, just today I saw one of those places where the refill the used cartiges and started to talk to the guy... I came to my house, took both cartiges and went back to the place just to have the memory chip reseted. My sorprice is that I'm printing 20 pages for a catalog, full color and the ink still there. The guy told me that the cartiges where heavy still and that mean with 75% of ink at least. He told me that looks like the printer make a calculation of the ink used but there is no actual way to measure the real level of ink inside. Now, that sound very logical because I had a old Epson Stylus 660 and I sold it because it was serial and I need a USB printer. With that Epson 660 I printed a 80 pages catalog (plus the defective pages) and my girlfriend printed her tesis too. With the new generation C60 I may printed about 20 pages with a lot of colors may be, not even the shadow of the old technology. For all of you I would recomend you to use no Empson cartiges or to find a way to reset the ink cartiges, it just take 2 minutes.
