I've just had the printer tell me that it will not print until the waste tank is renewed, fortunately I have 2 in stock so I went ahead and changed the cartridge, simple. But I then weighed the full cartridge 525 grams against the empty one 241 grams the equivalent of 3 new cartridges, which in the UK amounts to £131.50 ( $175 - 151 euros )

It just strikes me that this is a lot of money and materials wasted.

Great business model, isn't it? It is an excellent printer, however.

While we all complain about the price of petrol / gasoline, it's the price of ink that ought to be investigated. Alas, we are a captive audience that chose to walk into the open embrace of the printer companies and their stratospheric prices for ink. C'est la vie.
