I use a Canon i850 printer to run off the material I gather from APUG and the web. My problem is the high cost of Canon ink cartridges.
My printer is set to "greyscale" which helps a bit.
Has anyone had success with the ink refill centers which will do a single unit for 1/3 the cost of a replacement. Most important is will the refill nullify the extended warranty I have on my printer?
Thanks in advance,
I have the Canon i900D. I've tried several of the generic inks without success. I finally gave up and switched to the Canon inks which cost me about $45 a set off ebay. Under the generics, even monochromes has color casts.
Funny story, when I went to change back to the Canon inks I needed a whole set and in a hurry. So I went to Fry's Electronics and they had a set for $68.95. I was wandering around and noticed they had refurbished i950s for $69.95 with a new set of ink carts. So I bought the new printer for the ink carts. I got home and my son was visiting. He asked me what I was going to do with the printer and bought it off me for $10. Someone else was buying me the ink carts so I could prints some photos for them so I made $9 off the deal.
I used the ink refill once and it was ok for black ink but did not last long. I heard that if anything goes wrong with your printer and it is still in warranty, they won't cover it if you use the replacement ink. (For what it's worth)
