    How many of you guys use roland ink, or other inks? Any big differences? Besides a bulk ink setup.

    I'm using on sp300 other inks(www.sunmicroinks.com), some problems with black, but the rest is OK.
    On VP540 using only original Roland color!

    Roland OEM vs. 3rd party plug-n-play

    It depends on the volume of printing you are doing. Are you printing 8 hours per day five days a week -or- five hours per week?

    Only OEM inks here. I don't print enough to justify getting bulk ink and chancing my heads.

    Ya, i agree, im not trying to go the cheap route, i rather habe my bumper to bumper warranty from the dealer then get that voided..my other sign supplier is trying to push a third party ink, thats why i asked. Ill stick to roland ecosolmax inks....i was just wondering the difference in color gamut, scratch resistance, and if any head problems will arrive later on.

    I have Fuji Sericol inks in my XC540....they work great. Fuji tech provided me with profiles....colors look great. Not anymore ink used vs OEM. Had 2 issues with ink...one Lt Magenta...one in Black. Both times...reimbursed me for a printhead cost. They knew the issue was theirs and backed up what they said they would. I have NO complaints about that. Inks are consistent and printability is fine.

    There are plenty of pro's and con's to the third party ink question. If your ink savings per month will exceed paying for a tech visit and parts, then it absolutely makes sense.

    If you are in a position where your business is 100% reliant on that printer working up to par with no down time, i would say better safe than sorry and stick with OEM. That ink mist covers a lot of surfaces on the inside of the machine and can casue elusive electrical problems that can be costly. Stick with OEM if you are not going through a set of 440's a week.
