Jeff, I use the 3880 with 3rd party inks & carts. A typical 80 ml ink refill costs me ~$9, this does include the initial cost of the 80 ml carts, $90---150+ (for the same carts!).  There are 3-5 reliable vendors--see my posts and that of jtoolman, apotheker, petruska, fft81, and others inside of these posts.

I think I am going to use InkRepublic iRefill.  I read about them on this forum.  I would like to have CISS but they advised me by email that their refillable cartridges are probably better for my print volume.  I suppose I can always "upgrade" later if necessary.

It turns out my ink consumption estimates from the percentages in the LCD menu were WAY OFF.  The job log in the printer is showing ~2.34mL per print, for the poster pictured above on 13x19.  That was a nice surprise.
