Default Compatibility with other printers

I have often heard that Sawgrass inks are not compatible with printers like the Flexi-Jet.
My question is: The Smart Garment printer and Direct Advantage printers are both based on the Epson 4800/4880 as also is the Flexi-Jet. So if the Direct Advantage and the Smart Garment printers use the Sawgrass inks, then why can't the Flexi-Jet since they all use the same print head?

I use the formerly known Fast T-Jet inks in my Sawgrass machine. You'll need refillable cartriges as well as a chip resetter. This move saved me about 60% of over head.

We often hear that the Sawgrass ink is the best.
When switching over to a T-jet compatible ink more likely dupont, did notice any change in quality / washability?
