Recently I had a query from an Epson customer in Italy, asking about waste ink kits for the relatively new PX800FW which translates to Photo, Multifunction, Fax + Wireless for the uninitiated.
Upshot of the conversation was that I hadn’t seen one of these printers so I couldn’t offer much help but if they wanted to go digging… Great!
The point where you realise you’ve unleashed a monster is always fun!
Anyway… Away they went on a voyage of discovery, with photos coming in thick and fast until, after about 24 hours they decided to go for broke. Thus it was discovered that the PX800FW has a removable plate, above which lives an easy to remove (and service) waste pad assembly.
The words at this point are WOW!, Brilliant!, and “About ruddy time!”
Obviously this is a new discovery for me and, as a result, it’s hard to say which other printers have this design feature too, but I’d imagine the PX700W is a good contender and maybe the SX/BX600FW. It certainly calls for a bit of further investigation down at the local computer store.
With thanks to Andrea Sapienza for the info
As always I’d welcome information on new printer models, like this, so please keep it coming… (Pictures always welcome!).
