    Does anyone have any experience with an Epson Stylus R1400 and a continuous ink system? I used generic ink with my old Epson Stylus CX3810 and always had problems with the heads being dirty and poor printing. So far, I've been buying genuine Epson Claria ink for the R1400 and it has been printing perfectly without ever having to clean the heads. I'm a little reluctant to switch to generic ink for fear it will mess up this printer, but $20 a pop for each of six ink cartridges gets expensive fast. The most recent order cost $113 for all carts, although two don't need to be replaced right away.

    I'm looking at this system:

    If you're using a continuous system, which one do you use?
