    I have an Epson 1400 and am considering buying replacement cartridges from Inkjet Fly. Does anybody have experience with 3rd party ink suppliers? I am not looking to put in a CIS.

    I've used various third party cartridges in the past. Some were good (Jettec I still use) and some seemed to create a lot of blocked nozzles. That said, that's in an office type machine - not something that's color critical. If you're printing photos, you may find that you have to adjust colors to suit, or profile the printer with the third party inks.

    i find they are ok for general printing. Colours fade quickly and go a weird green colour from my canon photo printer, were originals don't.
