    Epson’s incorrect reporting of inkjet cartridge levels may result in cash for those eligible
    Epson America, Inc. is going to give consumers $45 aimed towards the purchase of printers and ink cartridges after the company decided to settle lawsuits in several states.  The lawsuits started after it was revealed that Epson inkjet printers and cartridges showed users that the ink cartridge was empty when it truly was not.  Dozens of by-state lawsuits were filed earlier this year, but this most recent announcement combines all outstanding litigation into a single US blanket class action instead.
    The class action claims that anyone in the US who purchased an Epson inkjet printer between April 8, 1999 and May 8, 2006 may be eligible for a $45 per-printer credit purchased between those dates from Epson’s online store.  Eligible customers can forfeit that $45 credit for a $25 check from Epson America, plus a $20 credit instead.  If the $45 combined credit isn’t good enough, Epson will give 25% off items in the online store, up to $100, as a third option.
    Interestingly enough, the settlement does not require Epson to change the thresholds at which the print cartridges report empty. Epson America claims it will make it clear on new products that even though the printer reports no ink a “saftey reserve” of ink still sits in the dispenser.
    Eligible customers can visit the website http://www.epsonsettlement.com, set up by the law firms representing the class action, for more information.  The final hearing in the case is scheduled for August 15, 2006
