Re: 3rd party inks

From what ive heard about printers and problems, dont go 3rd party. Long term could cause you problems that are far more costly than inks.

We've been using color magic for quite a while without any issues. It's all a bit subjective really because unless you monitor all your printer hardware constantly, you can't really tell if a particular ink has caused a failure on a part, unless it happens constantly perhaps, and then you swap back to original ink and it stops happening etc.

I have asked a couple of printer engineers off the record and you usually hear that color magic and granthams in particular seem to be pretty good.

I use Granthams inks in my BN20 and have had no issues. I bought the machine second hand and the previous owner was using them. I had the machine serviced and the engineer said in his opinion the inks were fine.
