Epson High Capacity 3 Color Cyan/Magenta/Yellow Ink Cartridge Reviews:
OEM really is a better alternative
My main beef about third-party/recycled cartridges is inconsistency, even from same manufacturer. I've had to return units (best case) and replace print heads [worst case - and printer was out of warranty, so no recourse]
I prefer to keep my printer for a while, with minimal issues. So yes, OEM can be a bit more expensive, but ultimately, I think, cheaper...
