I notice that the latest Epson - the 3000 - has tiny little cartridges - no idea how long they last but at least they're cheaper. It also uses NINE cartridges, including three different blacks - giving excellent b&w quality. However only 8 of the cartridges are used at a time and the automatic change of blacks, when required, is a big waste of ink and paper (as it cleans and checks nozzles each time and wants to use paper.
Printer ink, though, is the equivalent of the replacement blades for razors - buy a new razor and you get some new blades with it...... replacing the blades is always surprisingly costly. I'm sure that replacing printer ink only costs slightly less than buying a new printer.
$1000, for a set of inks. Sounds like the Japs are going to build a few more aircraft carriers
