Epson America Inc Complaint - Photo Printer - Epson Stylus Photo R1900

Review by Bigelowjive on 2008-06-12
I purchased an Epson R1900 from the Epson Store online. The problem is getting ink cartridge replacement for the printer at a local store. I went to the three stores listed on the Epson web site to purchase ink cartridges. These are the 87 models. None of the stores carry these cartridges. When they look up the printer it is not listed on their computer. Not listed not ordered. I went to Compusa, a store that carries the printer and they do not carry the ink cartridges.

I have to order through the Epson store which shipping charges are added to the purchase price. The printer does a great job but when I run out of ink I am unable to print.

That's how they can sell these printers so cheaply.

Do you have a Best Buy near you? You can look up the cartridge online, and see if stores near you have the cartridge in stock. According to epson.com the Cyan cartridge for your printer is #t087220. I live in MI, and all the Best Buys in my area have that cartridge in stock. It looks like a great printer!

Can you find a place nearby that will refill the cartridges?
