Yes, the paper and ink generates the profit, the printer probably doesn't make Epson any money.
If you don't like clogging problems, be sure you know what you're getting into with a CIS system. Especially if you are tempted to try pigment inks in a 6-color printer. Pigment inks are very prone to clogging.
I've used aftermarket carts from www.inkjetart.com that I won't buy again. They clog easily and often compared to Epson inks.
