Here’s a cost comparison on ink between refillable printers and the inkjet cartridge. I would have liked to have seen Which add in the cost of the printer models, and discuss full cost recovery and lifespan of these models.
Are we to take £200 as the “true cost” of a printer, minus the printer cartridge business model?
Appears that the refillable ink can pay back the higher cost of the printer in three years. This is still a potential risk to the “rational” consumer who might not trust a printer to last longer than three years. It’s also well outside of your rights as a consumer.
