    Help with a printer

    Hi. I need a printer that is a multifunction device (has a scanner built in) and it has to take generic carts. Can anyone suggest one? I want to avoid buying one that doesn't take generics. Thanks.

    No printer manufacturer is going to certify their printer to work with a cartiridge not made by themselves. After all, you might only sell a printer to a person once every 5 years, but you can sell hundreds of cartiridges to them over that time.

    epsons.. my R220 (same carts as RX500, RX600 and RX620 multifunctions, cant see em for sale anymore though) are £1.25 each and it must have been through 50 sets at least by now. printer may be pretty much throwaway but with the ink that cheap who cares.

    soo...
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/133094 "Epson Stylus DX4450" £32.85

    £9.40 for a full set on there.. no doubt somewhere cheaper only had a quick look
