The Differences Between Refilled and Remanufactured Ink
Would it surprise you to know that people spend triple the amount on replacing ink cartridges for their printer than the price of the printer itself? No, probably not. Buying remanufactured ink cartridges from companies like 4inkjets and 123inkjets, isn't a new trend, and with today's dwindling economy, it's really no surprise that many people are choosing to buy inexpensive remanufactured ink cartridges instead of overly priced brand new ones. To help you navigate the multitude of options when it comes to buying remanufactured ink, here is a list of important information you should always keep on hand.
With the hundreds of different printers on the market today, it can be difficult to decide which type will suit your individual printing needs. All printers come with their own set of pro's and con's, so research is a must. Don't buy a printer based solely on price. You might have the cheapest printer, but like the saying goes, "You get what you paid for". I have been through numerous cheap printers that couldn't withstand the test of time, and most survived only a couple of years at most. Between work and our children's school projects, we do a ton of printing, and unfortunately it took wasting money on a lot of "lemons" to come to grips with the fact that I had to faithfully invest in a printer that was durable and would last, even if that meant spending a few extra dollars.
Between my two teenage sons and their school projects, and my scrapbooking hobby, we have been through our fair share of printers. I learned a long time ago that spending a ton of money on a printer is self-defeating. Just because a certain brand costs a lot of money does not mean that it's going to print beautifully and never come with its share of problems. Even the most well-known printer manufacturers put out dud's every now and then, and believe me when I say I have been the unfortunate owner of plenty of them. I wouldn't call myself a technology savvy person, but I do know what works and doesn't work for me and my family.
