Re: Used printer economics--different there?

...I was curious, so I just checked prices at Wex Photo in the U.K. The P800 is still available new, for £899. A full P800 inkset is £410. So if the P800 comes with an 80%-full 'starter' inkset as it does in the U.S., then the net cost of the printer is £571; or if the U.K. version comes with a full inkset, then the net cost of the new P800 is £489.

At the time I bought it, the P800 ran for about 1200.00 euro and Amazon Germany sells it right now for 1129.99.

Anyway, I wanted the 3880 specifically because there are quite many cheap (expired) ink cartridges on the market. I got this idea watching Rodriguez´- the Printing Techie -  Youtube videos. Should the 3880 break down on me some day, I´ll be out 400.00 euro, no big deal, I´ll probably get another one, if I still have enough of the cartridges.
