    my dad ordered something like that (not that exactly) and it gummed up the printer after a few months.

    would you mind updating this thread after you start using it so we know if the one you got is legit?

    sure, i'll update. I'm printing like a mad man lately. Plus, i'm printing in color for an anatomy class I'm taking b/c printing in B&W is almost useless. I'm hoping this thing lives up to the reviews I've read.

    Hopefully this doesn't clog up the head. If it does, Ill just chunk the system since I can easily replace the printer head.

    I guess it's a little late now, but I think you'd be better off buying a printer designed to handle ink reservoirs. There's a lot of extra hardware that has to go along with it, it's not just a simple gravity feed or capillary-action feed; the reservoirs need to be filled with air as the ink level drops, the system needs to be able to recirculate to bleed out air in the feed lines, the printhead scrubbers need to be replaceable (since it stands to reason you'll be going through a LOT of ink if you have a setup like this), etc...

    I know this because I service one of these:
