Selling suboptimal adhesive paper that yellow almost instantly
Received 2 sets of photo glossy paper from MIR-AUS that yellow almost instantly (2 days). I thought it was the laser printer I was using. I contacted MIR-AUS only to be told that they will follow it up but never did. I switched to my inkjet printer only to find that the paper started to yellow from the edges regardless of what I did. I contacted MIR-AUS and sent photos only to not receive any response for two weeks. I emailed again only to be told that they have never heard of this issue and the I will get a "free" pack on next order and cut of...f the unusable edges. I do not understand how a company can fob off a serious product issue by asking me that I "cut off the affected areas because it's a label". This is unacceptable considering once you cut a label, those edges start to yellow. Pretty poor in my opinion.
Does not live up to the sellers claims
This system looks good initially, but is a real pain to use.
Colours are washed out even though I purchased their most expensive pigment inks.
Refilling is tedious and quite messy. You need a good supply of alcohol or similar to clean your hands and the syringes.
I don't know if it is the ink or cartridges, but the system blocks frequently where the original Epson inks never blocked in this printer.
Using the same paper print quality is noticeably worse with these inks compared to the Epson originals.
While the ink is cheaper, you use more through constant cleaning and priming of the cartridges and heads.
Bottom line, not worth the trouble at any price.
Not worth a 1 star!
When I looked at the reviews most were good, however, some stated customer service was bad. I wish I had taken more notice of them! I had an issue with one cartridge, and after a week a new chip arrived but I was unable to replace it. I called again and was talked to as if I was an imbecile. Throughout this process, I bought original Epson cartridges as I work from home and could not be without my printer. After many more exchanges, I received a replacement cartridge. I had actually requested a refund on many occasions throughout these exchang...es but this did not occur. The cartridge arrived too late. My faith in this company has been severed! I will not be using this company again and if I were you I would take note of this review. Try Inkstation instead, cheaper and easier to deal with, that is my recommendation.
Regret Getting an Mir Ciss
Got this MIR CISS unit for exactly 7 months and 1 day.....the black ink cartridge got an U150 error "The following ink tank cannot be recognized", tried all possible solutions to get it to works again, no luck, tried online help rep from MIR, could not help me out but come down to need a replacement chip for the cartridge, unfortunately MIR only cover 6 months warranty for the chip-set, online help rep said the chip cost $5 each, but i can get the chip for free if i purchase ink from them ......"hello".......$141.50 MIR CISS unit that last for ...7 months and 1 day, to hell with that .......long story cut short in the end the online help rep talk to the manager and offered to send the replacement chip for free........but the offer of free chip with ink purchase put me off..........SO I SAID NO THANK YOU......and like my others printer, I will go back to RIHAC CISS unit.................guys others reviewers are so lucky, but not me............I thought try something new and maybe better...........in the end waste money and times
