Lexmark Ink Cartridges & Compatibles

  Dumfy 00:15 24 Jan 2006

Hi everyone,

My father-in-law was given a Lexmark P915 photo printer for Christmas and has been shocked by the price of replacment ink cartridges.

I've searched numerous places on the Web for compatibles and while they're available at half the cost of the High Street (approx £13 each) it still is expensive for him on his pension.

Anybody have good links to suppliers of cheap comatibles for his printer, please?
I believe the cartridges required are numbers 31 and 33.

Many Thanks

I have had a Lexmark for 3 years and have resorted to refilling my own. Cheapest ink I have found is from Morrisons, around £2.99 for black and £3.99 for colour if I remember right. A bit messy but seems to work ok.

The cheapest method is to refill the Lexmark cartridges yourself. I have the Lexmark X5150 and refills work out at approximately 60 pence each. Quite a saving, when you consider the price of an original cartridge at anything from £18.00 to £25.00.And compatibles £11.00 to £19.00 approx.

I found these, one of the cheapest for compatibles click here And click here for originals.

I also use an Epson Stylus C86 for general letter copy work. The compatible cartridges cost 99pence each,which contain about 19ml of ink.

Advice and help much appreciated. Thanks.

As the printer is new, it's my guess that my Father-in-law won't want to dump it as he only just had it at christmas. Seems like self-refill is the way to go.
