Hi guys,

Fed up with paying stupid money for cartridges, refill kits, recycled cartridges etc... Stupid bloody chips stopping me from printing etc...

Who knows a good printer which doesn't use these crappy chips and you can refill.

Or a good chip re-setter which works on a printer and it's cartridges...

Also one where the ink cartridges do NOT dry up after like a month of non usage.

Quality doesn't matter at all, just the above.

Thanks guys,

HP XL cartridges are quite cheap off amazon and they are genuine

Then again Kodak boast that their ink cartridges are the cheapest and best to run?

All consumer inkjet printers dry out after non-use. Do you have to have color? If no, spend about $200 on a laser printer. The dell 2330d or 2300dn is an excellent model. The cartridges are about $98 for 6000 pages and will never dry out. Laser is also sharper. The only problem would be no color.

I have always found canon printers are quite cheap, i paid about 80quid for the printer and then £5-7 on a black ink cartridge and anything from £9-15 on a colour. it doesnt get used that often and the ink never seems to dry up.
