What about the carts?

I suppose the Inkjetcarts ink *is* safe to mix with the OEM Epson ink as it will during the changeover.

They all (Cone, Inkjetcarts, Inkjetfly) mix well with OEM ink. Cone is the only one out of the 3 that has resin encapsulated particles as OEM to maintain the same or better gloss characteristics as OEM.

Thanks for the clarification. I knew there were some inks that did't mix but didn't know which.

Thanks for sharing - this is good info, as I have an R3000 running on OEM carts, but I will switch to 3rd party inks as soon as the OEMs run out.

I already have a set of InkRepublic IRK nano inks and two sets of refillable carts at hand. I understand that I would likely need to reprofile each time I pop in a refillable cart for a given color, and this is basically not a problem for me (at least with cheap media) but what I wanted to ask is whether the printer will accept single refillable carts mixed with OEM carts? I thought this was not possible, and you'd need to swap out the whole set once a single OEM color runs out?
