    False. Machine breaks but you need to know which breaks. People are smart enough saying your machine breaks because of your compatible ink without really looking into the problem. What if the take up reel breaks, do you really believe it is the ink? I can tell you this. if you are choosing one of the reputable ones, you will only save 80% of ink cost. Use that 80% of ink cost savings to dominant your local market.

    Use J-STAR ink
    Four Refillable Cartridge
    Four liters of ink CMYK
    Options on chips permanent chips $45 each
    Shipped free for $400. Add $180 if you need permanent chips.

    Before you jump into the "J STAR" barrel, check out the plethora of bulk ink products available. Talk to several bulk ink dealers (CiberSupply offers Solaris and InkTec), get 2-3 referrals to out of market users, call the users and get their opinions, then you can make an informed choice. Please remember, the happiest users are the ones using GOOD ink, while receiving outstanding support in the event of an issue. Finally, be prepared to get your hands dirty.

    I will find out what we pay for ours, maybe you are cheaper. We use around 10 carts a month. Do you always have in stock? How long and cost to ship to 52802? You can PM info if you do not want on open board.

    Thanks,
    Terry
