Why would anybody buy a 2200 and even consider using non Epson UltraChrome ink?
The whole reason for getting a 2200 is to gain access to the UC ink with the
7th lite black hue. If one wants to use bulk ink, then they're better off with
a less expensive but very capable 1280. That is, unless the bulk ink they use
is syphoned from UC inks from 7600/9600 ink carts. That will lower print costs,
but the intial cost of this setup will almost be as much as the printer. The
CIS will run about $200. Carts for the 110ml UC ink run about $55 each (B and H
Photo). You need 7. Therefore, you need $385 worth of ink. But that should last
a long while. B and H prices the 220ml carts at $90 each. Therefore, it will
cost you $630 in ink. But this should last a very, very long time.

So a CIS and the 2200 is an attractive solution. Just realize the upfront cost
will not be insignificant.
