£17 a cartridge :w00t:
Unless you have a unique requirement for your specific printer, I think I would be looking at alternative models from Epson or Canon - they would pay for themselves in no time via significantly cheaper ink options.

Yes, and they clog up in no time too :-(
Google can show vast numbers of people with the problem which is rarely fixable!

This is why I have just thrown a Brother printer/scanner in the bin and gone back to HP (the very same cartridges as in this post, which I agree are very expensive, but contain new printing heads) where I can replace the heads simply by putting in a new ink cartridge.

I use ink intermittently, sometimes hardly any at all, other times, a fair bit, and have had the problem before with Epson, it was never a problem when I had HP before, unfortunately the same old problem returned with a Brother machine. This time it left me stuck with no means of printing, a bag full of cheap but useless full cartridges, and I had to wait until the next day to get a new one, missing an important deadline which probably cost me a lot more than a new printer! :-(

I will go back to what I did in the past - fill them up, and when they start to give poor printing fter 4 or 5 refills, put in new cartridges!

As you say ,don't use the epson for 3 days and it requires head cleaning which uses ink!.
I paid £52 last month for 350xl and 351xl cheapest i could find online.I've just bought the same at Tesco for£34

Use cheap cartridges, not the cheapest, and it is unlikely you will have problems.
I have use of various epsons at home work and rarely have issues even after extended periods of non-use - probably longest I can recall is about 3 months.
Surely I can't be the only person on the planet who doesn't buy the cheapest and potentially nastiest available items?

Have to say I've had the clogged up heads problem with epson as well. I switched to Hp and not had the problem. I've been using some refilled cartridges I got form 7dayshop.com, seem to be ok so far and a lot cheaper.
#6
Fair do's ,but have a look for hp cartridges 350xl,351xl and see what you come up with.
Cheapest refilled etc is about £12 so to get gen xls for £17 is cheap ,normally about £30 odd.
Still a rip off at £30+ mind you.
My HP prints on dvds cost £60......... epson was about £150+.
Anyway if your after these cartridges good luck.

I have had the problem with ORIGINAL carts!

I had the very first Epson Stylus MANY years ago, it had the problem and I have had another Epson since, before the Brother! In the meantime I had 2 HP printers with zero problems. Just thrown the Brother in the bin last Thursday... and I personally know plenty of other people who have had the same problem with different makes (a good few have had replacements under warranty!) - as far as I can see it is one of those rare problems that every manufacturer has, it is the technology that is the problem, not the brand - as I say search, and you will find so many people with this problem.
The pages of Ebay are FULL of "Refurb" printers with even the manufacturers on there themselves flogging them off after fixing as so many get returned! As an end user, having a machine repaired with new heads is rarely viable now the cost of a new one is so low, and it means you will have no printer for weeks!

All that has changed since the very first models is it is now MUCH more difficult or impossible to access the heads to soak them in cleaning fluid (the Brother was carefully designed to be as tamper-proof as possible - Clever!)
It is much cheaper to replace the printer now though! :-(

If you do not use it near enough every day, especially in a warm environment, get a printer which does NOT have built in heads (very, very few now), or buy a laser or LED printer; but that is not very practical for small volume users, and of course colour laser printers are even more expensive in outlay for the home user:-(

£33 .... for a printer cartridge :w00t: My printer didn't even cost that much new. I use the cheapest ones I can find on the internet and have never had a problem

This is interesting. I've just bought some ASDA's own make cartridges for my HP deskjet 5150. Haven't put them in yet but I thought I'd try them as ASDA's money back guarantee is excellent so I thought if they're carp I'll get my money back. What I'm interested in though is if anyone can advise me as to the difference in running costs of a Ink Jet Printer compared to a Laser Printer? Obviously I know the Laser takes Toners and they are expensive but do they work out more expensive than an Ink Jet?

Thanks in advance of your replies.

It's just not that simple.

Every model and every brand has it's own pricing structure, and it all depends on your needs and usage when working out the pros and cons of different types.
Some lasers can be a tenth of the cost per page compared to inkjet, but a full refill might cost 100 quid, whereas you can buy a basic inkjet printer complete for 30 quid!

You just have to look at what you need and want, price everything and work it out compared to what is available, and what you are willing to lay out at once, not an easy decision. If the replacement disposables are hard to get for a particular momdel, you might also need to weigh up the availability - not much good if you are going to have no printer for a few days when you want one, or if you end up paying full price just because you need it NOW! :-(

I have had the problem with ORIGINAL (Epson) carts (clogging)! ...

maybe to close on a genuine example of my good fortune with Epson:
Weekend before last I saw the HUKD for a £7 CISS system for the Epson R200 (the Epson model that prints directly to CD / DVD media). I had an Epson R200 literally gathering dust that I had rarely used and certainly hadn't used for in excess of two years.
Loaded the printer drivers; plugged it in.
First print was questionable. Single clean of the heads via the utility panel and hey presto: as good as new printing. These were the original catrs i.e. genuine Epson (I've never bought any replacement genuine carts).
Maybe I'm Mr. Lucky? Maybe others are not so lucky, or have difficulty successfully using the clean utility?
Whatever.
Let's not drift away from the fact that this thread shows where to obtain a genuinely great price for the stated HP carts (maybe depending on availability locally). It's just that less-costly ownership costs are readily obtainable via other manufacturers' products, for me at least.

I DID NOT SAY THAT, what I said was:

"I have had the problem with ORIGINAL carts!"


Please don't ADD to the content of quotes, (rather than just cut bulk out) in an attempt to makes some sort of point, it is VERY devious :-(

I have had problems with BOTH Epson and Brother cartridges as it happens, and other than clogging too, but don't make words up that I didn't say in the hope people will take them as literal.

Anyway, I have made the points I meant to make, and would only repeat them if I went on: the thread is dead anyway, as no-one has reported any other stores having them at the posted price :-(

In the context of my subsequent post, I would suggest that the truncation and standard quote convention clarification of brackets and periods did not alter the essence of the quotation, it simply condensed elements of five paragraphs into half a line.
No offence was intended, and equally none taken.
nihcaj, I would send PM but you have PM disabled.
