I need new ink .... am willing to go online as stores don't carry mine anymore.

But do discounters sell real ones?

As in....are they half full? I don't see ink sold by the ounce so are some providing more ink than others?

Which stores do you use?

These days I just buy at Costco the original brand HP for my HP printer. The non-brand ones are in generic clone cartridges or refurbished cartridges. So the ink is full, but the ink comes from other 3rd party companies that are trying to copy the quality of the original ink. Some are good, while others are so-so or poor. To be safe, I would just try to find some at an office supply store. I did see some remanufactured HP cartridges at Office Depot (Staples, Office Max, etc...). So they are reusing HP cartridges and refilling them with their 3rd party ink.

Canon seems to be the easiest to get good 3rd party ink, because the cartridges are a little simpler.

We saw a lady buying a new printer a while back. Said hers is fine but it's cheaper to buy a new printer than it is to pay the price for the ink cartridge. If that aint crazy I don't know what is!
We bought that Kodak ESP 7 all in one wireless printer. The ink cartridges are less than $20 and last quite a while. My wife printed out some family tree booklets for our family reunion (around 80 booklets, 8 pages each) and I think she still has ink left in the second cartridge she bought.

For work, we use a local business that refills our printer ink for us. They refill and deliver. Not sure what kind of quantity you're looking for, but I would check with local businesses. They have more at stake to give good customer service and quality products.

If you ever added up what your paying per gallon for your printer ink you'd toss the printer, $2000 or more per gallon isn't unheard of. Color lasers are cheap enough now. I haven't owned an inkjet printer in 10 years as I refuse to blow my cash on overpriced refills.
