Have a look at eBay, that is where I get my all compatibles from. For your model, less than £1.00 each?.

You could also consider a CISS or refillable system for that model. Might work out cheaper, if you are a big user?.

Check the feedback rating of the seller first.

Plenty of CISS systems are available for the SX series printers. I got mine from a French company on Ebay. I'm not normally an Ebay fan but got excellent service from the company I ordered from. A system complete with 100ml each of Pigment inks for £41 including postage from France. 100ml of ink is approximately equivalent to 16 sets of cartridges so the saving is worth it.

If you want compatible cartridges you can't beat Tescos. Not as cheap as some online but they last for ages.

I seem to recall that someone on the forum, suggested that Tesco compatibles were re-branded Jet Tec cartridges?.

I've also heard that, but its handy if you need some in a hurry, and as I said they last for ages, and about half the price of OEM.

I've been using Inkredible for my Epson D92 with no problems so far.

Thanks for asking - been in hospital, small Procedure (previously known as Operation), could have been more serious, must go again next week for further full-body CT scan.

But feeling OK ... thanks again!

Nontek you were the one that recommendeed Inkredible here first. Excellent service until Epson and others make it more difficult for third parties to produce compatibe inks.

On the mend I think, NHS the best there is, even if adverse pubilcity now and again. Nice to hear from you.
