Having thought long and hard before buying a CISS system, I have to say that the last 3 years have changed my mind completely. The simplicity of the CISS system from Cityink Express and the the staggering sums of money saved make this a must have for parents (since so much can wasted by kids) and business alike. Once setup, you simply pull out the cartridge and re-seat it, (I usually wait 4-5 secs) to make it be recognised once more.

 

Think of it this way, the cost of the entire CISS system is less than 2 original ink sets from EPSON!

 

Quality - The prints that I have produced are excellent and have been used in friends official wedding photo albums the print outs are that good. Could a skilled artist or expert designer tell the difference between inks? Not sure, however they normally use colour laser-jets, which are far too expensive for us. Assuming you use the correct photo quality paper, then the ink dries immediately, everytime! Also works fine on normal paper, if it stays wet, it is the fault of the paper, not the inks, I can assure you.

 

Refilling - With the CISS system this is almost never required, however the first fill up is straightforward and links to YouTube videos can be found including some from Cityinks.

 

TIP: Make sure the cables are not too tight, or do not bend too much or it can restrict ink flow.

Well I think it's a wonderful system - see the attached photo for my setup. It paid for itself when I had my first real commercial order, for 120 double-sided flyers. I would normally expect that much printing to use a significant amount of an ink cartridge.

 

I intend to continue with this setup for pretty much the life of the printer. Thanks very much for such a great system!

My first attempt to pick the pockets of those who make a fortune selling us a few mills of ink for a huge mark up. I did my homework, found the appropriate videos to watch (are you taking notes here?). Watched the videos again, watched for different machines to make sure they were not all the same but specific and took the plunge.

 

So far so good.

 

Delivery spot on ; ordered (At Bank Holiday weekend) on Friday and arrived Tuesday.

 

Packaging: sturdy box well packed. Contents more than adequate to do the job.

 

I had done my research and admire the people here make their video guides available to everyone.

 

I was sure I could do the filling process and ignored the advice to use one of the supplied large syringes... Big Mistake! If you have a shaky hand use the syringe (I’m still washing the ink off my fingers (which shows its good stuff I guess).

 

The guides are brilliant they make a simple process, well, simple! I’m printing off my song lists and the ink is no problem I did no Lab test research but it goes on, dries, no runs, no fading, no problem – as good as any I’ve bought ( I think). This is my first time using this service and am enjoying the freedom to print reams of stuff rather than only print essentials. I’ll see how much I print and let you know in a few months time.

I highly recommend the CISS for the Epson BX300f. I have previously used the official Epson ink cartridges, though these were not always available, and were very expensive. I have also tried the unbranded ones from supermarkets etc, but frustratingly hard to get them recognized. So when I heard about the continuous ink system, I thought to give it a try, especially as it offered a lot more ink at the same price as a set of official ink cartridges.

 

The extremely helpful YouTube videos, on priming the cartridges and installation, make installing the ciss fairly easy. Though I would recommend some gloves and kitchen roll on your work surface.

CISS is an excellent product...

 

I have been using a City Ink Express CISS bulk ink system on an HP Deskjet Pro 8600 for some months, used mainly by my university age children [who apparently drink printer ink]. Its easy to setup, mess and hassle free. You then simply watch the ink levels, i no longer have to keep buying cartridges every few weeks.

 

Printing results on plain and photo paper are identical to the OEM cartridges as far as I can see, and above all it works without issues, saves a lot of money and is very convenient!
