    Have any of you guys used the Solaris brand of Inks? Always used Roland Eco Sol OEM. Rep is trying to push a sale of buy 2 get 2 and I am a little skettchy about it. He makes it sound so simple lol -- Any thoughts?

    Thank you,
    Markus

    I tried them but ended up having issues so I switched back to Roland ink. I've heard people have good luck with Solaris inks but I didn't. The money I thought I would save ended up costing me more money. Only Roland OEM ink for me.

    I love Solaris inks. I have been running them for probably three years now. Zero problems. When I ran triangle inks I burned up one to two heads a year. I do not use their carts. I run bulk liters. I have no idea how their carts are, but the ink is great.

    The ink does stink. If you are in close proximity to the printer, don't bother.

    One of my competitors switched to Triangle inks.. Needless to say we've gained 3-5 of his clients this month already.
    Don't go cheap. They are charging way less than us an its irrelevant when you output garbage.

    they got me into their deal too,
    im going back to oem once i run these out.
    only issue i've had so far is the black and blue drain tubes clogging twice , never had that issue with roland inks, so i attribute this to solaris.

    Yah we put those inks in our Roland and the inks were fine the problem was the ink level indicator on the cartridge was no good and ran the line clean. Versa Works and the printer said I still had a good level too. Wasnt the case tho.
