    So, here are the details. I used to own an Epson R200, which finally died after years of service. But not before I bought large (and expensive) quantities of ink cartriges for it. So, I would like to purchase a printer that uses the same ink.

    I have researched this but to no avail -- I was hoping someone out there might be familiar with these things.

    Is your ink the T048120 cartridge (for black, or similar for color)? If you Google this, you'll see that compatible models seem to be the R300, R300M, and RX500. There might be more.

    Personally, I'd sell the cartridges on eBay (or Amazon or Craigslist or...) and use the money to buy a laser printer, which will probably last you longer and have you spending less money on ink/toner. (Color is a different story, since they're more expensive and the quality will be different--but not necessarily worse--than that of an inkjet.) But ... you can do what you like. :D
