Hello. I just ran out of black ink on the Epson Xp-342. It is known that the original inks bought with the printer, so also a small capacity. Now I would like to buy replacements because they are cheaper and much more spacious. The only problem is that I do not know which substitutes are good. Unless it does not matter what I buy. I don't know ... Here I found such:
Hi. Maybe choose a cartridge with a filling hole. You will then be able to buy the ink in a larger package and refill it. Or if you will be printing a lot, invest in a CISS system right away.
I had the XP-442 and I don't recommend the CISS for it, especially if you're installing it for the first time. I installed the CISS and I no longer have the printer - I flooded the head electronics. When counting the costs, it is probably better to buy carcasses with a filling hole in normal use.
Now I have a Canon G3410 and the CISS is already built in there.
It is most economical to buy Eternal T29 cartridges + 4x100 ink-mate ink (I recommend), the price is about PLN 150.
ok. I looked through and the offer is very interesting. I would like to buy. There are two problems. First, which set is more profitable? The one from this link, which costs PLN 149 https://allegro.pl/wieczne-kartridze-t29-xp-2xx-3xx-4xx-i7563148024.html or the one from the other link which costs 119.99 https: // allegro .pl / 400ml-ink-mate-eternal-cartridze-xp45-xp342-t29-i7226264628.html
The second problem is that I have an updated printer to the latest version and somewhere I read about these eternal cartridges that there may be a problem with their operation if the printer was updated.
