Epson C88 continuous ink system
is that a portable system?
I don't believe there is any such thing as an Epson C88 continuous ink system. Perhaps there is a continuous ink system for the Epson C88 printer. It's NOT an Epson product.
My one experience with an independent ink supplier was a half priced lesson well learned. In short: my self-imposed quality control procedures, from tripping the camera shutter to printing the best image possible, doesn't allow me to, as the final step, lay down what I consider, at best, a questionable ink.
The only bulk ink system I know of with a good track record is from http://www.mediastreet.com/site/index.html
I got one from www.echostore.com with pigment ink prefilled. Fatastic!!, it saves much for me. highly recommend!!
I have been using a continuous ink system purchased from eBay for over a year with absolutely no problems for my Epson C88. I have also been searching for the best one on the net but they are look the same but with different names.
It looked quite simple when I got with tubes attached to empty cartridges and tanks. How different would it be from one manufacturer to the next and is it worth paying $200 for one (often empty) when I can get it for under $80 on eBay already with ink? If you properly install it and take care of your printer well such as turning it off when not in use, the system will save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars a year.
All printer manufacturers make most of their money off of selling you their expensive cartridges so it is in their best interest and the interest of websites selling the manfucturer's printing supplies to bad mouth products that will block their profits. Beware of bias forums set up by such websites. There are many of them all over the internet.
The best thing to do is to look for actual buyers of these systems on eBay and read their comments. I have also seen posts on forums from what looks like the ink system manufacturer's themselves self praising their own products and pretending to be actual customers.
eBay members are real and ordinary people who have no bias. Printers are so cheap now but the cartridges have remain very expensive for obvious reasons (making money and breaking the backs of hard working individuals). My system came with a 60 day money back return policy but I had it for over a year and have seen no problems. The bulk ink is very cheap at only $25 to fill all 8 of my colors with 100 ml each or 8x100 ml of ink. 800 ml of ink is about 80 cartridges that I would have had to purchase from Epson if I did not have this system. Each Epson cartridge is around $14 so you do the math ($14 X 80) and find out how much I saved for $25. When purchasing a system just make sure you buy it from a seller with a reputable feedback.

You may want to try http://www.kyson.yangportal.com. They offer a 30 day free trial and their ink is made in the USA. Not imported. They also provide a printer protection program where if their product damages your printer in any way, they will pay for the cost of replacing the printer.
