Customer reviews for the C13S051099 epson Photoconductor Unit
Last ordered October 2014 — just reordered August 2015. Ten months! Very disappointing for a Epson product. In the past they have lasted three years+.
Better luck with this one I hope!
I'm sorry you're disappointed with the Epson photoconductor.
Inks, toners and photoconductors are designed to last a certain amount of pages rather than a period of time. The estimated amount of pages this photoconductor can produce is up to 20,000.
This is based on you printing at 5% coverage on every A4 page, which is basically a few sentences. So if you print at 10% coverage, the amount of pages it could process would reduce to approximately 10,000, 15% would be 6,666 etc.
So if you've used more coverage or done a lot more printing with this photoconductor it will have expired quicker.
The photoconductor (or drum unit) is a roller which prints the toner into your design on the page. As it's used the roller wears down and eventually the is causes the print to become poor so it's important to replace it when the printer tells you it is low or expired.Answered by Bethan Owen (staff member) - August 07, 2015 15:30
