I work with an Epson Stylus Color 850 at work. We have a lot of problems with the ink
cartridges because the printer wastes a lot of ink (for example, it cleans the injectors
on every startup by using quite much ink).

Besides, epson inkjet printers have a problem with injectors. In HP the injectors come
together with the cartridge, so every time you change the cartridges you are changing the
injectors. In Epson, if the printer is not used quite often (THIS IS MY CASE), the
injectors stall and they stop working. Therefore, the injectors have to be changed.

I have collected this information by asking to several friends and sellers. The
characteristics explained above, finally, lead to "higher cost maintenance".

What do you think about this?
