Am I on my own in thinking that the price charged for genuine inks is absolutely diabolical. The Epson "Cheetah" inks I use can cost over £40 if you are barmy enough to pay that amount and the cheapest at the moment seem's to be around £28. Even when bought at the lower price the amount of output is nowhere near what the maker claims. What a rip off!
I agree with others - never buy "genuine" inks - I always buy compatibles . Buy from whoever is offering the best deal at the time (inc cost of p&p) . So for my Canon I've bought at Rubberfrog.com; 365ink.co.uk; and mx2.co.uk All equally good and quick service. I've also had some genuine ink cartridges refilled at Cartridge world which has a shop near me. Equally good, but more expensive than the compatibles (tho cheaper than genuines)
You're definately not on your own thinking the price of genuine inks is diabolical. To replace all five inks in my Canon printer using Canon originals would cost £92 - the printer only cost £70 (with the inks).
I have mine refilled at Cartridge World at a cost of £6 each and they work fine.
