The fakiest thing about this? A close inspection will show there
are no ink cartridges loaded.
Fairly tough plastic. Will make good park benches.
I used up most of the ink before destroying it. What the heck, they already had my money. The important thing was to not give them any more. And I won't.
I figure this is the best way to deal with Lexmark and their DMCA crapola. Lest we forget HP wanted to do the same thing but sanity prevailed (probably after they realized what jerks they were being, and how ill they could afford yet more bad publicity).
So far, I think Epson has been playing fair. If you gotta have color, try them out.
If you have a Lexmark -- you know what to do.
