I use the knock off cartridges in my Epson printer and have not had a
problem. The color is the same and the price is less than half - $10 for
black and $11 for color cartridges - Epson brand; $19.95 and $29.95 -

I've just been pleased with their service. I order by email and get a
package in about three days!
