Thanks Petruska,

I'd appreciate any feedback on questions below.

I hope you're & others are right.  There were quite a few posts on this - but not from say, last few months (early 2013).

This from Jan, '12:

Other retail sites still have (outdated??) warnings:

I don't know that trying ONE compatible cart in my WF-3540 would give reliable results.  Read many times in the past, not suggested to mix OEM & compatible carts.  Don't know how accurate that is.  So many models, brands, software / firmware variables.

Trying one compatible MIGHT work, but could fail from mixing OEM / compatibles.  I could try a whole compatible set, from a better quality seller, that will refund $ if they don't work.

I'm open to suggestions on retailers w/ quality Epson compatibles & good refund policy.  In past for HP02 compatibles, I've used LD Products & seemed to work well.  But I'm not married to them.  Their page for Epson T127 carts:
