When you call for warranty service they give you the lecture about using certified OEM ink.  That's rhetoric to pay for the execs and outsourced support team. My first Epson printer (220?) was a dinosaur but a superb working dinosaur that had a symbiotic relationship with Linux.  The house got struck by electricity taking out the printer and 4490 Scanner and various network cards.  Sad to see it go, I bought a second Epson MFC which got ditched for paper jam within a year, no paper found. Lots of unused ink I couldn't sell on craigslist.  So here I am preparing a burial ceremony on my final printer with ink and the memory of Epson.  It seems to be trending.   Oops...
