    Default Refill Ink Places

    The ink for our printer is running low right now. We normally just go buy a new one but it seems so wasteful when they have the refill places. I have never heard of anyone using them IRL. Just curious if anyone has tried them or heard anything beyond the rumored "They don't fill them up all the way"?

    we used the one in MAsonville, worked for about 25 sheets then was out. I ended up deciding after that to buy new. They did offer a replacement or money back (I took money back).

    I found the refilled ones to run out faster too. Tried doing it ourselves for a few times, but it was a mess.

    Does anyone know the price difference between refilling and buying new?

    A word of advice...

    Refilling your cartridges or buying the cheap generic ink refills will not only ruin your machine in some cases, but the ink has a very high alcohol content and it runs out very fast partially due to this. It's a waste really. Pay the extra money and get the proper refills for your machine.

    Ditto...I'm in agreement with pps.
    Please always show kindness in your posts as the person receiving it may need it more than you will ever know.
