I’m just so tired of being ripped off for Laser Jet Toner. For years, I have been using HP Color LaserJet printers. And dread every time that flashing warning comes on telling me to replace one of the cartridges. It almost feels cheaper to replace the whole printer. At least you get the cartridges and the latest technology.
As I was doing some printing yesterday, my printer stoped printing and the warning started flashing “Change Magenta Cartridge.” And the led shows the other cartridges being closed to empty. Here we go again.
This time, I decided to go against the official warnings of the big tech companies. “Using toner from unauthorized sources can damage your printer.” At this point, I really don’t care. I’m tired of being held with the HP gun against my head. So I went to DuckDuck Go for suggestions. From there, I just went to Amazon. And after a lot of reluctance, I took the dive.
Normally, I just drive around the corner to Staples. It so convenient. You need ink right now, you come home with it in 15 minutes. Not this time! No, I’m not doing it.
Here is the comparison of prices:
- Staples – 1 Black, 1 Cyan, 1 Magenta and 1 Yellow all for a low price of $573.00
- The HP website is pretty much the same
- Greensky Remanufactured (Amazon) – 2 Black, 1 Cyan, 1 Magenta and 1 Yellow for a topping $69.70 with overnight Prime shipping
(There were many other deals on Amazon)
Thank you Greensky! I’ll never go back to the big tech rip off. Here are a few pics.
