Finding a cheap ink cartridge is no easy task.
The ink cartridge is loaded with all of the technology, yet the printer companies make it a throw away piece of equipment. For quality purposes, you get new print heads with the new ink cartridge, which is a good thing. However there has to be a cheaper alternative.
We aren't forced to throw away the coffee pot once it's empty, so why are we forced away to throw away the ink cartridge once it's empty? The reason has to be so that the printer company can sell more ink cartridges to us at huge profits to them.
Ink in itself is cheap, so why are ink cartridges so costly? Take a look at your ink cartridge and you will see all of the technology packed into the ink cartridge. It seems ridiculous that we should throw away such a tech filled cartridge away. They should design it so that all we need to do is purchase cheap ink cartridges filled with cheap ink, instead of expensive ink cartridges filled with cheap ink and expensive printer heads and expensive technology that has to be thrown out and replaced every time it gets empty.
Unfortunately, this is not an option. So the quest for cheap ink cartridges continues. Forget about those refill kits. I've yet to have a good experience with one of those. The quality is not the same. I've been there, done that, and I ended up buying a new ink cartridge in the end.
