I recently purchased the Epson WF-2838 printer for my home office, and was shocked at how quickly I was running through ink cartridges. I knew there had to be a better solution, so I started researching alternatives and discovered chipless firmware. After some hesitation, I decided to take the plunge and install the chipless firmware on my WF-2838.
I’m happy to say that it was a great decision. The installation process was a bit daunting at first, but following the instructions carefully made it a relatively simple process. Once I had the firmware installed, I noticed a significant difference in the amount of ink being used. With the original firmware, I was constantly replacing cartridges, but with the chipless firmware, I’ve gone months without having to refill the ink tanks.
Another benefit of the chipless firmware is the ability to use third-party ink, which is much cheaper than the Epson branded ink. This has saved me a considerable amount of money over time.
Overall, I’m extremely happy with the decision to install chipless firmware on my Epson WF-2838 printer. It has saved me money, time, and frustration, and has allowed me to focus more on my work without constantly worrying about running out of ink. I highly recommend this option to anyone who is looking for a more cost-effective and efficient printing solution.
