Hello, I have an Epson stylus photo R800- a full set of genuine epson inks costs me 90 odd. (bear in mind I am a student!). I've been browsing the forum and was wondering if anyone has tried compatible inks for this printer and if so are they any good? so far I have only used genuine inks as professional quality is important to me. Do any of the compatible inks come close? is there any hope for my bank balance?

I ditched mine........home printing is awful, costly, and a PAIN!!!!!

use your local printer instead for photographic stuff. I use Edinburgh Cameras and they're awesome. You local Pro printing is probably too so get down there!
