    I have delt with Victor several times, always good service ect ect. Im thinking of using the inks he provides....does anyone else use/have used them? Any problems....concerns ect ect. Obviously the savings are tempting....but I value quality much much more...

    Anyone? thanks!

    Inks were LAVA brand when I bought from him. More odor and you'll get a slight color change at least I did when running a print with orange in it and changing inks 1/2 way thru. If your printing a wrap and swap out in the middle of it you might notice a change in color otherwise they worked out pretty good. Definately flush your lines.

    I worry when you say more odor, that typically means stronger solvents and quicker drying.

    More attack on components and easier to clog nozzles.

    Yeah, I think the worry is not worth it....there is almost always a reason something is half price. I just ordered some more Mutoh Ink......just doesnt seem worth it....not enough positive feedback on it.

    Best color and easy on your printer is OEM.

    Stick with OEM. Aftermarket inks kill the manufacturers warranty completely no matter what people tell you

    what about triangle inks? their was a post about a year ago that stated pros and cons but using a premium eco ink could save you hundreds without a negative effect on parts.
