In terms of generic ink retailers, I'd recommend Castle Ink (http://www.castleink.com). I've been using these ink cartridges for years now and have never had an issue with clogged heads.

OEM branded ink and toner cartridges are very expensive. Consumers have the right to seek out reputable sellers of aftermarket ink and toner cartridges. All HP aftermarket cartridges are "remanufactured" cartridges. This means that they are "re-used". Reputable vendors sell remanned cartridges that have new parts, new toner, new chips and have been subjected to quality control testing to ensure they are operational. These cartridges will work just fine in the printers they were designed for and they usually cost 50%-75% less than the new cartridges. Here is a reputable web site that we found: http://www.printerexperts.com/hp-compatible-cyan-toner-cartridge-q3961a-and-c9701a-4k-page-yield.html

If you stick to American made inks, you'll be fine.

In particular, I recommend inks by a company in the US called Image Specalists. There is a company in Canada called Precision Colors that sells IS inks in cartridges usable by your ink jet printer and it's considerably cheaper than"genuine" ink cartridges.

I have used them for years, and they are great.  Good prices, relatively long-lasting cartridges, and I have never had a clogged print head (or if I did, I didn't know it).

And, no, I don't work for Cartridge World, and did not receive any compensation for this testamonial.

FACT: KISS comic book from the 70's was printed with real KISS blood 

Printer ink costs more than blood, so what, milk is more than gas ... and the list goes on

really?  milk costs more than gas?

can i live near you?

milk - $2.59 a gallon (Lucerne) at Safeway

gas - $3.09 a gallon ("Regular" 87 Octane unleaded fuel found at the nearest discount place.  Shell / Cheveron / etc... have 87 for around $3.29 here.)

There are 3.785 liters in an American Gallon.

Gasoline is .94 cents per liter for 87 Octane fuel which is equal to 3.56 per American Gallon.

Milk is 3.99 for four liters or 3.78 per American Gallon.

 

 

You choose a flightless bird as a mascot and wonder why it doesn't take off?

Yah, but neither gas nor milk is priced by the mililiter.

You can have your recession. I'm not participating.

Go to the hosptial and have an operation and the blood you buy will be by the pint not milliliter.

HP #45? They could have used a newer cartridge. You know, like one found in a printer sold today.

Ok then, let's use the HP 74, which costs $15 and contains about 5mL of ink, so that comes to $3/mL

Oh I wasn't doubting the cost (and the 45 is better than some newer ones, worse than others), I was just wondering why they would use something not found in new machines. It's like compairing the sugar content of soda that was only made in the 70's vs. Soda only found today.

 It'll be the same type of ink!

Printers are routinely classified by the underlying print technology
they employ; numerous such technologies have been developed over the
years.
