12 Yes, cheap printers have expensive ink (how else are the OEMs going to make
13 money)?
15 I recall reading a comparison study some time ago where different printers were
16 compared to each other at various price points. Expensive ink and
17 unnecessarily wasteful printing-head cleaning cycles were the two main causes
18 for not jumping on the first cheap printer on sale.
20 My experience with HP has also been trouble free.
