    Yes and no, most Epson printers work fine on compats though will nag you about being non Epson, however currently some machines taking the 29 (strawberry) and 33 (orange) cartridges are refusing to work on compats due to revised firmware but this was done during production, not an update, it's always best to set your printer up not to accept updates, that way you should have no problems.
