I have been comparing ink costs for an Epson ink jet. Im comparing Epson, Walmart, and Amazon.
The latter 2 seem to have the best prices? Is there much variance? I don't like remanufactured cartridges.
Thanks

I have not seen much variance in ink prices except when it's available at Costco, but then you have to buy a package of two at once. I agree, don't buy remanufactured or go to the refilling places, that's asking for trouble. When buying a new printer I always go look at the replacement cartridges to see how much they are. It's ridiculous to pay $149 for a printer and $55 for ink.

Ink can get crazy as far as prices for name brand cartridges but they are usually within a few dollars difference at places like walmart, costco, etc.

I bought an inexpensive HP wireless all-in-one printer for $40 on sale and the cartridges cost $15-20. It seems kind of crazy that the ink costs half the cost of the printer but thats how the manufacturers get you, the ink costs...
