Epson printer class-action lawsuit settlement (US)

Epson has settled a class-action lawsuit in the US regarding its inkjet printers. The complaint was that Epson's cartridges indicate that they're empty when they are not, and that the printers will refuse to operate even though ink remains in the cartridge.

Epson continues to deny any wrong-doing but has settled. The settlement offer gives three options:
o $45 credit at Epson's e-store (the default benefit)
o $25 by check + $20 credit at Epson's e-store
o 25% off purchases at Epson's e-store up to a limit of $100 credit

The selected e-store benefit is applied to each qualifying printer registered under the settlement program - if you have multiple Epson printers, you get multiple benefits. It's not clear to me if the $25 check is per printer or per claimant.

Claims must be made by June 22, 2006.
