The problem that I have is the the ink seems to leak out. I wanted to store the carts upright for fear of getting air in the "sponge", so I put it in a little paper box on my desktop, When I picked it up to use it there was quite a puddle of ink on my desktop thru the box. And dispite being epson OEM ink it hasn't faded yet :-(. On the positive side that very cart went into the printer and worked just fine. I've also printed my print heads completely dry a couple of times with no ill effects. It's kinda hard to avoid after putting an partial cart back in. The epson thinks that it's a new full one and won't signal even when the cart runs dry...
