Hi Ian, I know that "we" use inks from a number of different suppliers.
oh yeah. so when a customer buys from this relabeler he does not know
what he is getting at any point in time
Unfortunately, some of these are guarded secrets
oh yeah more standard bs. this is what they all say. this is what is
wrong with the industry. read for your self. this is what i have been
trying to tell people.
so I can't just come out
and tell you. Often, we source product from the same manufacturers that the
OEMs do,
nobody but the oems know who they get what from and the what is under
patent so as long as the who meets the patent it really does not make a
difference who they are since the oems closely monitor the quality and
consistency.
and that puts the source "overseas". That's as much as I can tell
you without getting fired.
righto they are willing to fire their employees for telling the truth
and disclosing what the customer is really buying. what a joke.
And shot at sundown. And buried in a shallow
grave where vermin are sure to nibble on me.

What I am interested in is this whole question of "relabeling". The major
OEM manufacturers "relabel" all the time.
no no they designed, engineered a patented printing system where the ink
is only part of the system and they control all aspects.
Have you noticed how cartridges
from one manufacturer fit another manufacturer's printer? It's the same
hardware platform being relabeled and sold as "Lexmark" or "Dell" or
what-have-you. You know this, don't you? Or is this news?
right i going to put an hp cart in my canon printer
Now as to problematic ink,
it all is
this is where I am in the odd position of
defending Measekite. I'll admit this on behalf of a company that's been
working since 1991 to deliver value: sometimes it screws up.

In other words, we've been suckered just like many of "you". It happens.
That's where our 100% satisfaction guarantee comes in. If we ship a
defective product, you get your money back. In other words,
you went and bought a $1000 Epson printer and the printhead (a permenant
one) was ruined from the generic ink. So you get back the $10.00 you
paid for the ink and lost $1,000 printer. whoa baby let me otta here.
we don't make
money off selling inferior products. We make money off selling superior
products for less.
that is exactly what they all say. without knowing what you are buying
the customer cannot tell up from down in this industry. the oems give
you a consistant brand and the same thing is sold all over.
That's why "we" like Measekite. If you never, ever go aftermarket, you are
reasonably assured of specified performance. Of course, if you can live
with $.13 per sheet, you have no problems.

I myself have a budget to maintain, just like everybody else. I understand
how the aftermarket can save money and improve quality, but it's on a
case-by-case basis and CAVEAT EMPTOR.
Let the buyer beware.
The buyer has to beware cause he does not know what he is buying.

I'm so shocked and stunned at the revelation that some of it comes from
the same factory that makes OEM inks. Measekite's in shock right now,
downing Pepto-Bismal for acid ink reflux in his tummy.

You should spend more time on R&D, before your sell the ink. This is
know excuse.

You like measekite????? Is your company that unprofessional????

case-by-case basis and CAVEAT EMPTOR. Let the buyer beware. This is good
advice no matter where or who you are in life.
CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is the name of your company?????
Thanks for the question. It was a good one.
And you never answered it.

Hey Ian, I notice that you failed to answer my challenge to provide actualy
factual data for your moving "HP RULEZ, CANON SUCKZ" argument. Can't say
that I'm surprised, as I had you labeled as a clown from the start.

Another one for the plonk file.

And is ebay the only way to get the ink? I was under the impression one
could order directly from hobbicolors. After a couple of bad
experiences, I swore off ebay's shady grey-market aspect that seems to
be more and more prevalent.
You can place an order in e-mail. You may post payment via a postal
money order or via paypal. The "kit" is nothing more than a one
syringe and plugs, which I'm sure you can request no syringe and no
plugs, but I doubt the cost savings would be enough to be worth the
time. The stuff is shipped via USPS (us postal service) and should
have no issues crossing the boarder, and shouldn't cost an arm and a
leg. Other companies who use FedEX or UPS tend to cost much for
shipping.

re-inks.com and atlanticinkjet.com (same company AFAIK) offer free
shipping even to canada for orders above $50.

Actually, many of us have known this info now for years. Only
meashershithead seems incapable of understanding this fact.
