    I've said it once, I'll say it again. Unless you are running Merritt kind of quantity, are the savings from 3rd party ink worth the hassles? They all claim to be guaranteed to to mess up your printer, but I have yet to hear of a third party ink company take responsibility for something going wrong.

    if you are paying $130 for genuine HP ink, 750 ml, why on earth would you want to run anything else?!?!

    We looked at using the Sam-ink because it is $69/liter... That's less than half, we took the chance because we knew the heads are replaceable by the end user and it was worth the shot... it didn't pan out so we are back to OEM.

    high cost

    In any case Sam-ink has cost us a lot
    3 latex printers L26500 down and 2 Z6100 down,
    Total 12 printheads not working on latex
    8 not working on Z6100
    Tons of ink laying around
    One bord fried,
    customer service is useless
    they sent chip decoder , did not do anything;
    they told us they would send replacement print heads, then said they did not have any left....
    very Frustrating
    3 orders placed, every time we are told that the next order will fix problems
    3 stores stopped in morocco
    only printers still working are the Z6200
    that did not get Sam-ink....
    this might actually kill me

    I would never trust buying ink from someone named Sam.

    If your product f*cked up someone else's machine. Admit it, apologize it, fix it or get a new printer. It seems like every complaint that I read on signs101 you want nothing to do with it. It is not me, it is not Sam's. It never happened. We're local to Kevsign. They did use your ink.

    Latex: Always use HP OEM product. Bordeaux has latex ink product but because of not as good as OEM. It is putting on hold.

    Fool`s gold

    We had some experience with SAM Ink and can give an honest opinion. We tried it for a few months (with a lot of financial effort on our part). For a 25500 we used both HP Refilled Cartridges and SAM Ink refillable cartridge units. With both of them we experienced serious head clogging and changed a lot of printheads.
    Further more, even though we were still testing the inks and considered the option of distributing them locally (upon confirmation of quality) the prices that they offered us kept rising from one order to another (20 - 50% increase per order). Sam does sound professional but he does not have his money and mouth in the same place.
    We would advise against the use of their inks.

    Dear KevSign,

    I think you also suck. Z6100, L25500, L260, L280 do NOT share the same parts.

    Please clarify before making false and misleading statements.

    Yours truly,

    This turned bad. Not a happy ending at all.

    Remember people..... when you point a finger accusing someone of something, you still have three pointing back k at yourself. So, be careful.


    And it's like a 6 year old thread !!!!!

    Dear PremierColour,

    I think you are an ink competitor.

    I have been trying to help you but now I think I know your intentions.

    This thread was before my time...but surely looks like 10 fingers from 10 different people are pointing at Sam..... Sam revived an old thread that died out, and really the response from him left egg all over his face. No not a happy ending at all.... ya should just let it die and do what other overseas people do...change your name and sell it unsuspecting people all over again.

    Samink - All of those titles you find necessary to string after your name won't do anything for you when you act like a child. When publicly representing a company ALWAYS take the high road.

    No way someone with BSc, MSc, MBA. Director & CEO would be schlepping ink. Unless their name is Sam.

    Dear Equippaint,

    Nice to meet you. I'll be 54 this year, & Grace and I have 3 wonderful children.

    When you represent yourself, your family, your business, or your country, you do not need to be ALWAYS apologetic - especially to business competitors.

    The Good Book also taught us that it is not wrong or sinful to be proud of or take pleasure in a job well done—winning an award, following a difficult recipe in the kitchen, running a successful business, passing a challenging exam, negotiating bargains, graduating school, raising a family, and the like. We can scrutinize and be satisfied with the work we did. This attitude is simply opposed to being displeased (which discontentment would motivate us to do it again until we got it right)

    Forever Yours,
    Sam Leong BSc MSc MBA. sam@sam-ink.com | WA +65-9011-2282.

    At 54, you should be better than this. I never said to be apologetic. I said that, at a minimum, you should act like an adult while representing your company.
    Since you brought it up, the good book does not condone the way you are being, it promotes being humble and kind. With that being said I don't care. You are just making yourself look stupid with your company plastered all over it.

    With Appreciation,

    Dear Player,

    You're right. Schlepping inks is nothing compared to JP Morgan Chase or Boeing.

    But somehow the Good Lord has closed some doors and opened some, and He has led a servant down this path. I am not complaining.

    It has been 20 years now and I'm just starting to see the real purpose for which I am called to harvest.

    Best Regards,
    Sam Leong BSc MSc MBA. sam@sam-ink.com | WA +65-9011-2282.

    Someone putting all that stuff after their name looks tacky and not professional...and questionable..but then again your suit says that too.
