Using J-Tek as an example which I believe is the most popular ink on this forum for wide format and very good quality goes for about $120 from most dealers. You can find it on the internet for $100 and specials down to $85.

Wouldn't cost much to create a profile and have top quality ink at 1/2 the price of Cobra. Once you create the profile you are saving $2500 a year for a better quality ink. Just something for desktop users who are using a decent amount of ink to consider.
Excellent points. And yes something I have looked at too.

I'm OK at the ink prices I'm paying now, it does allows me to use low end equipment without the risk. But yes, I am certainly leaning that way toward large format inks, probably Italian or Korean perhaps. Not a expensive proposition to prove that out with an additional $150 small format printer and $400 dollars in inks.

The risk of having to do an ink dump is not an issue if those inks expire as at those prices as they are not sitting in printers till they are quickly consumed by small ink delivery (no ink lines). Only a small portion of the inks are ever committed at any given time in a printer lacking long ink lines and CIS, meaning the expiration can easily be managed.

Even where I am now probably at the point I can still save money and dump 50% of those in the toilet. Not that I would do that ... the inks are valuable in the market once there is a profile covering them. But you didn't hear that from me.

So yes, the math you describe will indeed work.

I now have got about 200 sq ft. of my house freed up on top of the existing office I have for the PC and printers and includes a 15 x 12 garage lined with custom built in cabinets lined full on 2 walls and electricity capacity to run (2) 16x20's, which is my current setup for the presses and packaging area. 2 more rooms are empty now and about 200 sq. ft.

Anyway I have nice options. I'm in a 2000 sq ft. 4 bedroom and just me and 2 dogs. Either that or my dogs get their own bedrooms.

It seems ink expiration is a bigger problem on the desktop side especially early on with Ricoh gel inks. J-Tek liters do not even have expiration dates on them. I assume they could tell you manufactured date based on lot number but there is no such markings on the bottle. Typically in wide format ink does not sit around a long time but one has no way of telling how long it sat at the manufactures warehouse nor how long it sat at a distributors warehouse. Not saying it last forever but it does not seem to have this magical drop dead date.

You kept saying year after year to get the epson7110 from cobra, and so I finally did. My mistake was not seeing that you said to stay away from the cis system and stick with the refillable carts!

I used to use Jtek in a mutoh rj900 and it worked great. I wondered if it was possible to use in the little epson I just ordered from cobra, but figured I would just try their system as a whole and see how it worked out..so it would just be a matter of changing profile?

I've been using a CIS system and inks from inkXpro since January on my 7610 and have had absolutely no issues. Easy to install yourself, costs right around $100 for system (including full bottles of all four colors). Add the $150 printer and you have an extremely inexpensive and reliable setup. Just my 2 cents
