People who use their printers a lot tend to like Epson printers.
They save lots!! of money on cartridges, almost  a dime to a dollar.
Those who use their printers very little generally do not like Epsons
because they tend to lose the cartridge prime after not being used for
a couple of weeks or so.
When this happens, the user often panics and wrecks the printer by
doing endless cleaning cycles and/or letting the printer sit with an empty

Personally I've had very good luck with Epsons, ( 7 ) and very bad
luck with HP printers.
