Can I use Epson 288 instead of 288XL?
What's the difference? The Epson 288 is a standard cartridge while the the 288XL is a high yield cartridge that contains more ink so it prints more pages (or can yield more pages). The Epson 288 and 288XL are interchangeable so YES you can use a 288 instead of a 288XL. This is especially better if you don't print a lot as often. High yield cartridges are usually recommended for those who print a lot regularly.
How many pages does Epson 288xl ink print?
A high yield black Epson 288XL ink cartridge prints 500 pages. Each cyan, magenta, and yellow high yield 288XL ink cartridge prints 450 pages.
Standard 288 page yields: A black Epson 288 prints 175 pages. Each cyan, magenta, and yellow standard 288 ink cartridge prints 165 pages.
How long cartridges last all depend on what you print and how often you print. If you print daily, it's better to go with high yield cartridges so you don't have to replace cartridges as often. If you don't print often, however, it's better to go with standard cartridges as ink tend to dry up when left unused and can lead to clogged cartridges or spotty print results.
Can Epson 288 ink cartridges be refilled?
It's possible to refill Epson 288 ink cartridges but for the very low price of this high yield Epson 288XL set, you can get back to printing right away and without the mess!
Can I use Epson 200 instead of 288?
No, these cartridges are not interchangeable. Each Epson cartridge is outfitted with a smart chip that communicates only with its designated compatible printers. Standard and high yield versions of the same cartridge series (288, 288XL) have the same chip; all others have a different chip. For this reason, you cannot interchange different Epson cartridges.

|Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges||Remanufactured Cartridges||Compatible Cartridges|
|Description||OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon.||Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill.||A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.|
|Price Factors||Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges.||Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch.||Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.|
|Quality||Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer||High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.||High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.|
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
|Ink Cartridges||Toner Cartridges|
|Printer Type||Work with inkjet printers||Work with laser printers|
|Material||Liquid ink||Dry powder|
|How it works||Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface||Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page|
|Commonly used by||Casual home users, small business and photographers||Large businesses and schools|
|Number of Pages You Can Print||A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.|
|Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life||Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.|
|Cartridge Care and Storage||Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.|
