My first language is French, but I am happy to share my review of
one of 5 CIS systems I have tested. Hope this will help those of
you looking for a good CIS for your R2400 or R1800.

You can also see my reviews in French in other French forums.

I've tested several continuous ink systems and I was disappointed
either by the quality of the inks or the CIS

I had first tested the MIS system but after too many problems I had
given up:

  • the cartridges reset did not work

  • the ink feed ribbons/lines were wedged

  • I have waited for 3 weeks and no reply from MIS

I had also tested a system from Ebay seen in the URL below:

  • the system functions well but inks are not of the quality I expected

There are 2 other system I have not yet tested:
Lyson
Inkfly

Here is a system I found which gives me complete satisfaction from
efillink:

I received my package from Efillink last week. Packing is of
quality and the parts are well protected in the package.

I do not find the details of the installation in the package, but
the videos on the web site at Efillink details the installation
step by step and it is very easy to implement:

In my web site you can see the mounting of the ink feed ribbons and
their support mounting bracket

the system requrires 3 batteries LR6 and there is a button on-off
switch that controls the low ink alert systems and the air inlet to
the ink bottles.

LEDS on the front indicates when the bottles should be refilled.
This is the low ink alert to indicate when the bottle is almost
empty.

This is very important: if a bottle is empty, air will goes in the
ink feed ribbons and move into the cartridge. Running the printer
with an empty cartridge could potentially damage the print heads.

There is a version of the R2400 Ink System Pro that allows exchange
of the PK and MK cartridges. Both cartridges are connected to the
system and they are easily interchangable:

I did not find other suppliers who has the chip/cartridge that
reset so nicely.(The chip will reset at 20% to 90% )

9 syringes are provided with the system for filling the bottles and
the cartridges.

Extra items makes it easy:
The package contains a bottle of cleaning fluid and a syringe with
a flexible tube. I did not use it initially.

After two prints from the printer, the print did not come out right.
I realized that the system used bad quality inks previously.
To convert to the new ink and the Ink System Pro, I use a syringe
and fitted a small flexible tube and fit it on the nipple which
comes with the cartridge.

I put 1 ml of the cleaning fluid and await 1 min then. I used the
syringe to purge the air in the cartridge. After the print nozzle
was purged of the old inks, the printer works fine.

Another easy way: to feed ink into the lines, I used SSC Service
Utility with the function Head Cleaning ==> Powerful
cleaning: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

On the site of the supplier, the recommendation is : The ink tank
must be positioned slightly below the cartridges.

The inks that came with the package are of exceptional quality. My
prints are identical to inks of the original inks, color and B&W.
For the moment I have tested with of Premium Glossy, Semi-gloss and
Moab KOKOPELLI. I use with Photoshop CS2 with Epson profiles (and
Moab)
without having any problem. I also compare to the monitor screen
(Dell Trinitron 21" gauged with 5500?K).

The system functions perfectly

Here is a picture of the system in action. If you want to see more
photographs of the Efillink system, you can go on my web site:

People from Efillink are really responsive and answer very quickly
when I email and with questions. A quality of service which I
really appreciate.

Prices for R2400:

  • complete system with 8 inks 247$

  • complete system with 9 inks 287$

Also exist for various printers Epson, Canon and Hp

Are you using the 9 color set? How does it work?
