    I can buy a Lexmark printer for £25. However, if I buy one black and one colour cartridge for it, the cost would be almost £50. Anyone buying a printer really should take great care, and find out the cost of cartridges, before making the purchase.

    I am pleased to say I am still running my Epson 460, and can get cartridges for next to nothing. I have just ordered 2 Black cartidges for the total sum of £5.49!

    LOL I agree I see cartridges for my epson stylus on E Bay for like 2$ 3$ ... before buying a printer people need to look for cheap ink cartridges first.

    I was speaking to a cartridge supplier today, and she said she always recommends either the Epson or the Canon printers because of the availability of cheaper cartridges.
