Angry I hate my CISS

I've been doing some research in this forum about CISS systems and it's been kind of hard to find real consumer reviews since so many were spam.

I've been having a lot of problems with my CISS system. I bought mine from Kyson USA (which seems to look exactly like the one from echostore).

I've had air problems in my system since I've set it up. I was wondering if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong. My system was working fine for about a month and then.. BAM! My printer wont recognize the black. I did the flip the cartridge upside down thing to siphon and it eventually started leaking from the top of the cartridge (not from the print head).

I think my problem might be that my printer is an officejet and it's kind of tall. Should the bottom of the CISS system be at the same exact level as the cartridges? Mine has been below a bit. If it's an inch above, will it get rid of the air? Every website has said their product takes 5-10 minutes to install. LIARS!! Siphoning is so annoying.

Printer HP 7410
Cartridge: HP 94/95 or 96/97

Does the Kyson one just suck?

These are the companies I know of: MIS, Kyson, echostore, & inkrepublic. I'm new, I have like a hundred questions (sorry).

Instead of giving me info about the companies, does anybody know a link that has real reviews/comparisons and not just employees spamming?

The magical CIS system is turning out to be a nightmare. It copped out on me at work last week and it really messed things up at.

See post #2 in this thread...


Get plugged into that group, among whom are some real sharp folks when it comes to this kind of thing. Real users, not 'reviews' which IMO tend to be biased or conveniently leave out the entire truth.
