    I should have a good shop round on the tinternet if I was you Maestro, there are literally hundreds of sites selling them.There's the potential to save yourself a good few bob.I've found a site that'll do me the colour and the black for less than most do the colour on it's own including postage. I haven't got their name to hand but will post it on here for you later.

    I've used for a long time now. They're a reasonable amount cheaper than shops for the ink we use and give excellent service. Their price includes postage and is sent out the day you order it, almost always has arrived the following day.

    Why not search for your ink cartridges on ebay, post the link to the required item here on tMP, follow your posted link and make you purchase. You win the bid or "buy it now" and a few cents go into the tMP purse. :) Every little helps. ;)

    Unfortunately I've never found printer cartridges on ebay cheaper than on internet shops.It's not very often you don't pay postage on there and the delivery isn't as quick unless you "buy it now" and your setup for Paypal.

    I'm not saying don't have a look just don't be suprised if it's not as cheap.

    Yes, you do end up paying postage on ebay, and fair do's the internet site you've posted quotes free delivery. But a simple comparison on the cartridge used in my printer shows: : £14.99 - postage free

    1st result on ebay search : £3.99 + £3.00 postage - ok, this one's a refill, but'll do the job just as well.

    2nd result on ebay search : £4.99 + £2.99 postage - ok, a refill again. :)

    The only "non-genuine HP" cartridges I've ever bought that don't work have been from Tescos. Twice I've had the coloured cartridge from them and twice the yellow didn't work and I had to return them.

    Yes of course the cheapest supplier will change from cartridge to cartridge, my previous printer cartridges were cheaper from a different internet shop than these are and you also have to compare like for like eg originals, non branded, refills etc. I'm just saying in my own experiences of the last 5 printers I've used, not a single cartridge has been the best value on ebay and I have bought allsorts of things from ebay when they've been better value than elsewhere.

    The other slight point is you don't need to set up a Paypal account if you shop elsewhere, you can just pay with your card there and then.

    One to look ay -

    Good for memory cards and stuff, too.

    Printer ink is the most expensive liquid on earth!

    I've used very often in recent years, and they frequently
    send me money-off vouchers by email which is nice. I only buy genuine
    inks too - the last time I used a "compatible" cartridge the colours were
    well off...

    I buy the ink refill kits and refill my own, you usually get quite a few uses out of each cartridge before the jets bung up. works out as being the cheapest way round.

    I always use these people they mainly sell Recycled cartridges at resonable prices.

    You can use thier website to order or phone and they will deal on prices 01458 272727.

    Never had any problems with my Epson printer or my HP.

    Worth a try.
