Enquiring about CISS and Refillable Cartridge for Epson T60 or Epson R290

I am looking to buy Epson T60 or Epson R290 printers to save some money on printing and i am looking to use this printer with Continuous Ink Supply System (CISS) or to use refillable cartridges. I have a few questions to enquire about CISS and Refillable Cartridge with this printers.
  1. I have heard that CISS is only good for people who print a lot and if I not use the printer for few days then my printer would be dead ? is it true?
  2. Does the above problem that I have mentioned is also with the Refillable Cartridge instead of CISS?
Now I have to choose between either the mention printer or HP photosmart plus e-all in one which actually has a lot of features if anyone have use these techniques and having knowledge of this technique then please help me.

If you will use CISS ink cartridge with your Epson printer then generally you doesn?t have to face any problem with the printers. if you will not use the printer for few days then this will result in to the damage of your printers head which you have to either repair it or replace it with the new head otherwise your printer would be dead.

I think if you want to use the printer continuously then you should go with CISS because using CISS users can save in buying cartridges and high cost inks and you can also save up to 50% in cost of inks and cartridges . CISS can last up to 6 months or 1 year and even sometimes for 2 years depending upon the volume of prints.

I have Epson T6161 printers and I am using Refillable cartridge for my printer and never face any problems with my printer. I think this one suits better for the Epson printers. In my opinion the refillable cartridge is the better way to go with because using this technique you doesn?t have any pressure or the risk of your printer head getting damaged or something and it works like a normal ink.

If you are buying the Epson printers then I would like to recommend you to go with CISS but the CISS is really for the people who print a lot as people using the printers for commercial purposes like photographer. If you are using the printer for commercial purpose then you surely go with CISS because it is better than Refillable cartridge in terms of quality and reliability.

I would prefer you to get HP photosmart plus e all in one printer instead of buying the Epson printer because HP printer is generally better than Epson. HP PhotoSmart printers offers you a lot of features and in addition a good printing quality which is nearly same as Epson T60 printers.

I think you should use refillable cartridge with Epson printers because if you use CISS then Epson will void your warranty for the machine . you cannot send your printers to the Epson service centers for repair if you already installed and use them with CISS. Sometimes CISS will also makes the printers head faulty as ink particles can be harden which will cause a blockage into a printers print head. Printers print head is a critical part of the printer and the most expensive one.
