Do you use genuine or cheap alternative ink for your printer?
I use to just buy a new printer when the ink runs out becuase is cheaper than getting new ink cartridges. But one day i decided to take a gamble on the cheap cartridges from ebay and have never gone back to genuine.
I have a HP 5520 for a few years now and the ink is dirt cheap. I can get 4x Black, 2x Cyna, 2x yellow and 2x magenta for just $19 delivered while a genuine one cost $25 each!
Yes, colour is a bit off, head gets blocked once a while, and sometime with streak marks on the print. But a simple head clean fixes these issues.
I was looking at getting a new printer but now days the third party cartridges are not that much cheaper than the genuine. Especially with those tri-colour cartridges.
