I don't think this can help you, but if any Canadians are viewing, this is a great place...especially for Epson ink. I'm pretty lucky because I live right beside it.

As like JIM9 i get my ink from a local computer fair, the cheapest i have ever paid was £18 for 5 sets (30 Cartridges), at present i'am using Datasafe ink (6 cartridges boxed with 1 extra black) i paid £25 for 5 box's, this is for a R200 by the way.

if we are talking refilling as opposed to cartridges then I get enough to fill my HP1215psc tanks about 20-25 times for less than a tenner at a large supermarket whose name I wont say except that it ryhmes with Fresco

Ebay my friend, ebay. You can get complete sets for about 12 bucks plus shipping. I recenlty got 21 cartridges, 3 black 3 yellow and 2 each of the rest, for 32 dollars. They were also the larger 20ml cartridges. Just do a search on ebay for example: epson r320 ink

You will get plenty of results.

Also, I have not noticed ANY difference between the OEM ink and the generic/aftermarket inks. Actually, I think the generic inks last a little longer because they usually have a few more ml's.

It's important to compare like with like before you buy new cartridges.

I have had my HP printer for just over a year now and have just noticed that the Black cartridges come in various capacities.

The fist I ever bought was local from a national stationary supplier, it was a 14Ml

The second was a 25Ml from Ebay and I thought I'd got a bargain.

Just noticed I can get 47Ml cartridges, some of which are cheaper than the above 2, so it's well worth checking what your getting for your money.

Just been informed about this site but not used them as yet:

PrintGear

They do Free overnight delivery in the UK as well
