Guys', I use the Photobox website for my print requirements and they are terriffic. However, my printer recently ran out of ink, it is old and no longer particularly good at printing photos (EPSON PHOTO 870) it produces masses of horizontal banding, which despite all attempts to remedy still persist to this day. So I got some generic ink off of E-Bay. It was only £9.99 for 4 blacks and 2 colour I was stunned Only 4 years ago I was paying around £25 for a single cartridge So I began to ponder...ponder..ponder..ponder..yes I'm still pondering....and here is my question which I regurgitate to the forum Printers have evolved considerably since the Epson 870.....Ink costs made home photo printing far too expensive in the past; so is anyone out there using dirt cheap ink on a modern high quality photo printer and getting exceptional results????? Cheers, Pete.
