Class action lawsuit against Epson Settled

Ripped from FW:

Class action lawsuit against Epson because their printers would notify user that ink cartridge was empty when it wasn't and halting use of printer forcing them to buy a new cartridge.

They have agreed to settle to avoid fees. If you purchased an Epson on or after April 8, 1999 to May 8, 2006 you can receive a $45 dollar credit to the Epson estore as part of the settlement. There is an alternative to treceive a $20 check and $25 credit to the estore or 25% of an estore purchase up tp $100 dollars.

Go to http://www.epsonsettlement.com/ to see if your printer qualifies

List of printers

Register your printer now if you havent done it. Looks like they give 45$ for each printer you own. Registration needs serial number from the printer.

I actually just bought ink this weekend because of this problem....

Did they "fix" the software so it won't notify you when it's empty?

Yea, good question.

As far as I can tell, this isn't quite over yet. I'm not holding my breath on seeing the 90.00 I would be due.

Have they released a work around for this problem yet? I have the RX600 (This is my third one because the first 2 LCDs died) and it just flies through ink and I don't even print that much. I want to be able to force it to print even when the printer thinks it's empty.
