Inkjet Refils

  PalaeoBill 20:37 18 Nov 2010

I have a Canon CX 350 business card printer that has been given some serious work to do over years. I have two complete sets of original Canon cartridges (6 in each set) and I have refilled these many times now using universal colour refill kits from click here which cost less than £2 each.

The original Canon cartridges were in the region of £25 each and the heads would block up if the printer was not used at least once a week. Since I've been refilling them they block up less with the cheaper ink and the print quality on uncoated card is better than the original ink was.

I was refilling the magenta cartridge this morning and it got me thinking... I can't work out how many times I've refilled or how much I've saved but it must be considerable now.

I have no axe to grid, I don't work for or have any association other than as a customer. I just want to say well done, great value for money. I suppose I shouldn't leave out Canon as their cartridges have survived the refilling and reuse process so many times - the build quality is pretty amazing.

I find this similar with Canon photocopiers. Their EP range fills no end of times for about £2.00 a time compared to about £60.00 for the new original toner barrel.

Having used many types of well known printers, I purchased a Brother DCP-135C all-in-one at low budget price. Cannot fault the printer, and compatible cartridges working out just over 50p each, I sure ain't complaining, especially as the printer is in daily use. Would mention that I have a CISS unit for this printer, but haven't got around to bother to fit it.
