completely random post about printer ink
Anyone who has a printer knows that printer ink is terribly expensive, the recycled kind never really works and doesn't have the greatest life span, and if you work in an office/go to school you really try to print "important" stuff on someone else's nice laserjet printer. Me too. But at home I have an Epson 777 color printer (not some expensive thing, it's about three years old) and I dutifully replace the black ink cartridge ($25+ at Office Whatever) and color ink cartridge ($27+ at Office Whatever) when I've used them up. But I don't pay those prices.
I don't know about you, but those "cheap ink!" spam mails and what not, which lead to crappy-looking web sites that scream "Do NOT provide your credit card number, you idiot! Are you nuts?" well, I see those and I don't mind paying sixty bucks for new ink. But a few years ago I bought some ink cartridges off an eBay merchant (I'm a big fan of eBay, my feedback rating is 1540!) for really cheap: $8 for black, $9 for color. You know what? They're absolutely fine.
So, if you have an Epson, HP or Canon printer and need ink, I recommend Ink Kingdom
, which appears just to be some fellow out of Salt Lake City, but I've never had a bad experience and I've probably bought ink ten or fifteen times from him in the last few years. Ignore the crappy web site, it is actually secure.
No, I don't get a kickback, I just like to pass on tips about fine, cheap stuff!
