Interesting. Thanks for that. I ask because I have an R2000 that I bought on run-out as a precaution against the day that my R1900 died, or at least got too cantankerous with refillables. That day seems like it’s just about here, and I’m a little apprehensive about whether the R2000, currently with flush in it and still awaiting its first ink, is going to be as trouble free as the R1900 was for most of its life. Especially after the trouble that @Jeffg53 had with his R2000.
My impression (admittedly from a small sample) is that they seem more troublesome with refillables than most other Epson desktop printers. In that sense I’m concerned that they’re a little like the R2400, which I found to be and often read to be particularly troublesome with refillables. I guess a P400 is an option, if it really is a better printer for refillables.
I suspect that many of those nozzle checks that you’re being asked to comment on are air in the system rather than clogs, caused by cartridge compatibility issues.
