why ya yelling?? (all caps) Ah, nevermind. I have thought alot recently about at least re-rilling the black ink. I am a photographer, and I must count on archivability of the prints I sell to families, so I take HP at their word and print with HP inks on HP paper. They tell me 70 years + I absolutely love doing weddings digital, doing my own post processing, and producing my own prints up to 8 x 10 at home. They are beautiful, I have full control, and never ONE complaint.
I trade in cartriges at Office Max or Staples for $3.00 credit, and NEVER buy ink without at least a "Save $30.00 on a $100.00 Purchase" coupon. They come along for either Office Max or Staples on a regular basis. Figuring all this in, I have not found ANY cheaper new ink cartriges anywhere. Again, this said, I am thinking for my word processing printer (never the photo printer) that I will try black ink refills. JP
