Pigment vs. Dye Based Ink Cartridges: The Verdict

At the end of the day, your choice depends upon two things – what kind of things you want to print and how much you are willing to pay. Consider.

    Choose pigment if you want longevity.
    Choose pigment if your prints will see a lot of sunlight.
    Choose pigment if you’re printing on glossy paper.
    Choose dye if colour quality is important.
    Choose dye if price is a concern.
    Choose dye if you want to avoid smudging.

 i have a bunch of ink i need to store. as the printer i was useing reached the end of its life. therefore rendered the ciss useless. and want to reuse the ink in another printer.

so what kinds of bottles can i store all this ink in. since i cant use the ciss any more i just want to empty it rather than trying to seal the lins up

I have a brandy new  HP T120 wide format Deskjet. Ran the initial factory cartridges near the end today and so I had bought a refillable kit from CIS. No dice. I am following the instructions but I find no way to turn off cartridge usage information or cartridge tracking in either the front panel or the web server interface. Now the printer will only boot if I uninstall the cartridges.

The error message is simply "ink system problem" " turn the printer off and back on again and if the problem persists call HP support"

That is with the original HP cartridges back in.

Please don't tell me that these cartridges have rendered this $700 printer useless right in the middle of a job for a customer!

It may apply to the chip placement, but why it is not correct can be many reasons.  Taking out the CISS cartridge can damage the spring pin connectors in the print head.  My CISS cartridge did!

My CISinks CISS cartridges chips are mounted in such a way that there is a very fine 'lip' at the edge of the chip created by the edge of the plastic cartridge casing. When the cartridge is removed from the print head, the plastic case 'lip' catches on the spring tooth contact strip of the HP print head cartridge receiver and bends it back out of shape. Subsequent attempts to seat any cartridge, HP or CIS, fails.  Had to get new print head from HP twice. 
Do I have a defective CISS set of cartridges?

I received a set of refillable cartridges for an Epson WF-3640 printer.  Based on my reading of the online faq's etc. it's not clear to me which hole is the refill hole and which is the air vent.

As looked at from the front of the printer, the back of each cartridge appears to be the end with the chip - it has colored, oblong tabs on the top and on the top front are round plugs.  The front plugs look like they have the small plastic compartments underneath which would make them the air vents based on what I've read elsewhere on this site, yet the label on the top of each cartridge says "DO NOT REMOVE" right by the front plug.

Do any of these plugs need to be permanently removed for the printer to properly function in normal use?

If yes, which ones - the front or the back?  And just to be thorough, could you please confirm which of these holes should be used for refilling the cartridges when the time comes?

Can you recommend a refill ink for an HP 6602A cartridge? I see lots of HP options, but that particular cartridge isn't listed.

You'd think they'd monitor this a bit better. Lots of unanswered questions in here.

Is there any difference in the ink for different brand printers? For instance, the 'dye' ink for a Canon printer, is it the same as a 'dye' ink for an Epson? This is just on the ink, not the cartridges.

Thanks in advance.

I'm new to cis systems and was wondering if there are any video's with tips and recommendations on refilling cis ink reservoirs?
is there a level the reservoir is not supposed to fall below? can you refill at anytime to keep reservoirs full?
