I would highly recommend this product if you go through a lot of ink.
The supplied instruction were just ok. I used the video on their website to help me prime the cartridges. As for installation, removal of the cover from the cartridge holder was the most difficult part. I ended up just cutting the left hinge of the cover so it was a little shorter. Then the cover just popped right off. It was not completely clear what the best way to route the ink supply tubes was, but after a little trial and error I was able to get them in a good spot with no interference to the printer head. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the supplied clips did not seem to fit my printer (Workforce 645) nor were they mentioned anywhere in the instructions, so I used tape.
I ran several color test prints using both the original Epson ink cartridges and the CISS and found no noticable difference. As of this review, I've printed about 60 color pages on it so far with no issues and I'm very happy with my purchase. If I ever run out of ink, I will buy this again.
The written directions in english have very poor grammar, and when you need them, they are confusing. The online directions are better in the how-to/trouble shooting area.
I did not see in the original written directions that you need to hit a reset button built into the chip near the battery when installed. They mention hitting the button for each color... Previous CISS just need you to pull the cartridges out and put them back down. I do think when they need to be reset the button will be easier than my old printer/system.
FYI - Once installed and powered back on. Go back and hit cartridge replacement. An error may come up, do what it says to get you to the replacement phase. When the bin slides over and stops waiting for you to replace the cartridges, all you have to do is press the button for 3-5 seconds once. You will see the colors on the mini screen go to a shade of grey as if they are missing, when you release the button the colors will brighten back up and hit ok to go through charging.
The directions almost give it a 4 stars, but the website helped and once you spend 5 minutes figuring it out and how it works, it runs great. I will update later if any problems arise.
I received the system with some printed instructions, which were pretty decent and I went to the vendor site as suggested in order to watch the suggested videos. After getting documented (inverted about an hour between reading and watching the video) I proceeded to the installation. I do not see any other way to remove the ink compartment door than breaking the small plastic hinge that keeps it in place. I tried to remove it without breaking it but it snapped at some point. No big deal I hope, at least not so far.
Before installing the ink cartridges I had to "prime" the system (remove all the air bubbles inside the ink hoses) which was easier than I thought. The vendors site describes a couple of ways to do it, one is more difficult than the other (includes removing the electronic board of the assembly), I suggest that you try the easier one first, it worked for me. I just had to remove some air plugs located at the ink containers and pull the air bubbles using the included syringe. I had to do it a couple of times for each of the colors, but really no big deal, it took less than ten minutes.
After priming I installed the ink cartridges (which actually is just one piece), followed the ink replacement procedure from Epson and RESET the ink levels by pressing the button in the cartridges assembly. All this was done by following the provided written instructions from the vendor.Read more ›
