The Pros and Cons in Buying Printer Ink Cartridge Refills

Printer Ink refill kits have vastly improved over the decades. Computer Supply companies manufacture quality ink refill kits. But the ink refilling process can still be a bit technical and difficult for some people. Before buying ink refills you need to consider a lot of things, like for example the quality, reliability and also the price. Below are the pros and cons you need to look at yourself before refilling your ink.
The Pros of refilling ink
* It’s cheaper. Refill kits are usually the cheapest option out there for third-party cartridges. Because you’re buying only the ink, it is cheaper compared with ink cartridges. There are companies that offer cheap printer ink, companies that offer a great service with excellent prices.
* It’s green. Using a refill kit allows you to recycle your old printer cartridges instead of throwing them away. This way, you’re not only saving money you’re also saving the environment and helping the Mother Earth become cleaner.
* It’s convenient. If you have a refill kit, you won’t have to go to the store every time your cartridges run out, all you have to do is just refill them and put them back in the printer.
The Cons of refilling ink
* Room for mistakes. Because you’re refilling your cartridge by hand, there’s room for some human error in the process.
* Complex cartridges. Today’s cartridges have computer chips and other high-tech features that can get in the way of injecting your own ink. Not all cartridges are the same so you have to make sure that you’re buying the ink refill that is suitable to your computer printer.
* Warranty trouble. It’s a myth that any use of third-party ink or cartridges will void your printer’s warranty out of hand. But if the damage caused to your printer is obviously from a third-party ink, this may cause problems with your warranty. Companies do not void printer warranty and that the most important thing is to buy them from a reputable source with a full guarantee. One example of the savings which can be made on compatible ink is on the popular HP 21 ink cartridge. The original HP cartridge has 5ml of ink retails at approx £14.00. A standard remanufactured printer cartridge has 20ml of ink and can be picked up for around a tenner. That’s four times as much ink for around 2/3 the price. So you can see the savings are astronomical.
Buying ink refill kits can save you a lot of money. However, they are not perfect and do have their own disadvantages also. If you still want to save money without risking problems from human error in the ink refill process, you can still find cheap cartridges through companies that sell remanufactured or original third-party cartridges.
