I bought a full set of 125ml Lyson inks along with cartridges and separate syringes to fill them last year. Filling the cartridges is simple, but it’s advisable to do it over plenty of newspaper just in case of any spills. It’s easy to get ink on your fingers, but it does no harm and disappears after a couple of days.

 

I ordered an extra bottle of black ink, as you do tend to use more black than any of the other colours. Next time I’ll have to order just one set, with the black ink having being expended by around 50% more than the other colours.

There was a problem with one of the black cartridges supplied that didn’t work. As I had a second black cartridge, I was up and running after swapping over, but CityInkExpress' response to my support query was immediate and they sent me a fresh cartridge to replace the faulty one.

The inks are indistinguishable to my eye from original Epson ink, and it’s certainly far more cost effective to refill cartridges in this way.

 

The only problem I’ve encountered is when refilling a cartridge, the printer sometimes won’t start up correctly. The only way I’ve found to fix this is to power up the printer with one of the cartridges unseated so that the printer thinks that it’s not installed. Pushing the cartridge down and going through the printer startup cycle again seems to clear the error.

 

All in all, top quality ink and brilliant support from CityInkExpress.

I thought for a very long time about buying a CISS system and then after seeing my parents one in action I decided to bite the bullet of the initial expense and go for it for my Epson printer. After owning the CISS for over 4 years I have to say it was the best thing I ever did!

The huge amount of money I have saved over the years must total a staggering amount and I haven't had to replace cartridges all the time as it holds so much ink and it was so easy to set up.

 

I have just replaced my 8 year old Epson printer with a newer Epson model (as my old one was starting to fail on the paper feed) and of course the first thing I have done is head straight over to City Ink Express to see what CISS and refillable cartridge systems are available for it.

It's such a shame that my old 4 ink feed CISS system isn't compatible with my new 5 ink printer, but I've certainly had my moneys worth out of it.

 

Thanks again CityInkExpress for the huge amount of money I will save over the next few years!!

I’ve been using now the CISS for my Canon printer for 4 months. I’m very satisfied using this system.

The installation instructions are explained simply and clearly. And thanks to the instructional videos, installation is a piece of cake.

The quality of the ink is as good as the genuine Canon ink. There’s only a slight colour deviation. So recalibration of the printer may be needed.

Quick delivery of the goods. The right price for excellent quality.

I bought the CityInkExpress CIS system a while ago for my Epson printer and it has been invaluable.

I love to see the Epson software hassling me to buy more ink then just resetting and continuing printing (I have the older setup, I understand that the newer ones even reset themselves so even less to do!) I don't print a great deal but it's lasted for three years!

Once it's set up there is nothing else to do, apart from keeping an eye on the ink level in the tanks, which do down very slowly.

It's well worth the initial outlay and has saved me a small fortune and should continue to do so.

I always use CityInkExpress for my ink refills and CIS systems and I am saving a fortune on ink cartridges.

The quality is perfect and I could not be happier. The inks never dry up or cartridges never block.

I only buy printers now that CityInkExpress do the replacement inks and cartridges for.
