Its worth a lot. What it is saying, very simply, is that if the use of
refilled or third party ink carts causes damage to the printer, that
Epson can ascertain, then they reserve the right to not repair those
damages under warranty. They are further saying that using third party
inks or refills does not void the basic warranty of the unit, should it
fail due to other reasons than relating to non-Epson inks.
Epson needed to clarify this, because in easy printed material the
impression was left that the full warranty might be voided if one
refilled carts or used third party inks.
