Trek Store Epson timeline:
June 2008 - Epson Fax/Scanner/Printer purchased.
Aug. 2008 - through Jan 2010 - colour cartridges replaced every 3 months despite never having used colour ink. The machine won't work unless there are new colour cartridges installed.
Jan. 2010 - fed up with the fax machine it was replaced (in anger) with a far superior HP black and white laser unit. It works perfectly.
Feb. 26th 2011 -
Don - "Check this out, I just got a new colour printer for the store!"
Jeremy - "You bought an Epson? What were you thinking? Do you remember the problems we had with our old fax machine?"
Don - Yeah, but it was only $40"
Jeremy - "OK, we'll see".
Feb. 28th 2011- New printer will not work until we replace the yellow cartridge, less than 24 hours after it was hooked up to our computer. Awesome.
