    Hello:

    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

Refurbished vs. Original Cartridges: The Real Score

Refurbished vs. Original Cartridges: The Real Score

IDG News Service has a post with a rather interesting title: “Tech Secrets: 21 Things “They” Don’t Want You to Know.” And one “thing” that is mentioned is that consumers are spending too much on printer ink. Now where did we hear that from before?

printer cartridgesWe will be the first to admit that before we got all interested in printers and printer ink, we were among those who believed that one can only put brand new printer-manufacturer-made ink cartridges into printers – or suffer the consequences. After all, it made much more sense at the outset: I am using a XYZ printer, so it only follows that I ought to only use XYZ ink in it.

We are not exactly downplaying the print quality that name-brand printer ink cartridges can provide, but we cannot help but admit that these are simply way too expensive – especially those that normally go into dirt cheap printer models. During these rather challenging financial times, one cannot help but wish there was simply a more inexpensive alternative, although it does seem like some manufacturers are starting to offer cheap ink.

Enter the refurbished or refilled ink cartridges. You can either have your cartridges refilled, or use a refill ink.

Will the prints using these types of cartridges not be as good? Sometimes, may be; Like in photographic archival of prints, but for normal everyday use, they compare on par with OEM inks in our opinion.

Will these cartridges hurt your printer? No, if the refill is done properly.

So should you stay away from them? Absolutely not.

The bottom line is simply this: what is it that you can afford? There is certainly nothing wrong with sticking to brand-name cartridges if you can very well afford them. But should you feel you cannot, then the next best thing is certainly not a bad option at all.

Still think it isn’t worth it to at least try these 3rd party inks in your printer ?
