    got ink????

    Does anyone notice that inks cartridges for inkjet printers are really expensive? their cost is (blk ink & color combined )almost the half of th price of the printer itself.
    how good are those that is generic brand or you buy them in a bottle & inject ?

    Definitely get the generic brands if you can or like you said, just get the bottle and make your own cartridges. The small hassle of refilling them is worth the money you save...
    To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've
    wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went
    to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    Sorry don't know, it might be worth a try. Just buy a generic colour cartridge and test it out, if you dont like it,maybe you could return it or just chaulk it up to experience. The advantage is, if it works well, you will save a bunch of cash every time you buy a generic cartridge...

    we have an epson too, and im usually wary of generic products (spoiled or somefin, i guess). but after seeing the prices we tried some generic ink, and it works just fine! if the printer itself is good the ink should make little difference.. for the most part.

    best buy & its kind are too expensive. our local computer store (Milwaukee PC) has generic stuff for dirt cheap. Online too, as was previously mentioned.

    i'll shut up my rambling now
