I've been trying to save the company some money by using Rhinotek ink in our Epson P/S 1200. I haven't had any trouble with the black, but the colour isn't right. Aside from the fact it clogs the jets more than Epson ink, it isn't the same colour. Prints come out heavy on the warms (reds, oranges, etc.). I like the black just fine with the 1200, but for colour I will only use Epson.

-Scott quote

I was encouraged to buy Rhinotek after reading numerous positive customer reviews at various sites. My personal experience ran contrary to what I had read however. Using an Epson Photo 1200, the colors are indeed comparable for everyday use and the hardware/software recognition of the cartridge was just fine. The problem, and it's a considerable one, is with the ink distribution. With numerous cartridges (I've used 3 or four each color and black) the need for repeated cleaning cycles was incredibly wasteful. One of the color cartridges had a clogged nozzled throughout the last third of it's use, unresponsive to cleaning cycles. The Epson brand cartridges just do not have this problem and my machine has been running smoothly ever since I switched back. Buy.com has lost my ink orders since it's stopped carrying them. Do yourself a favor if you want to try and buy only one. If you have the above problems with it, don't suppose it's a fluke.
