The point of the post was for anyone toying with the idea of buying replacement inks to think about buying a new printer instead. I for one won't buy any more replacement cartridges. My last printer Canon PIXMA MP495
, was purchased before Christmas for 25 quid
and if I get 12 months + out of it then I'll be happy. I'll then buy a new one ! I know it's not green or ethical but the cost of replacement ink dictates my reasoning.
