The cartridges that come with some printers are only good for 10 A4
sheets. Some of the genuine replacement cartridges have less ink than
some third party compatibles.
For years now I've always used compatible cartridges (inkjet) and toners
(laser) from StinkyInk and have not had any problems with them. With my
Epson InKjet I will run a full color small print through at least every
other week and I always replace all cartridges at the same time even
though some may still have a quarter of the ink still left. From
experience of the print heads drying out, I never leave an empty
cartridge in the printer - even for a day. I always have a replacement
set to hand before the ink runs out.
They want £327 for a set for my printer.
It cost £49 and came with a full set not starters.
Really nice and quick but it weighs a ton (35Kg).
Seen them second hand for £180.
One good thing about it is that there isn't a linux driver for it.
The first review is written by one of Amazons 'Top 1000 reviewers' no less:
<(Amazon.com product link shortened)>
Just read his other reviews - goes to show that Amazon sells lots of
Amazing and Awesome products :)
Perhaps Amazon are kindly flagging up to us that "Top 1000 reviewers"
may well not be what they seem.
Fake reviews are becoming more of a problem. But you can usually get the
sense of a product by looking at a reasonable number. People who mention
a slightly negative aspect are likely to be genuine.
Rather than following that link I just searched amazon for cordless
jigsaws. It appeared at the top of the page with “sponsored” next to it.
Amazon is awash with sponsored no-name products all with glowing 5 star
reviews. Given that they are never household names you have to ask yourself
how they’ve all go 5 star reviews so quickly. Simple answer is that the
sellers have paid for the ad AND the reviews. It’s clearly very lucrative.
I might be wrong, but I always assumed "sponsored" items were simply
ones that were pushed up the advertising ranking by the seller paying an
extra fee (as happens on Google). Although it seems quite likely that
such sellers would also pay for fake reviews. A little while ago you'd
get products with plausible rather than adulatory reviews where the
reviewer mentioned that they had had the product free or discounted.
Because once you "buy in" to a given manufacturer's cordless tools, you
don't generally want an extra battery and charger every time you buy
another tool to add to the collection ... I chose 18V Makita several
years ago, got 3x 3.0Ah batteries and a charger with a drill/impact
combo set and have bought several "bare" tools since, only recently when
I purchased a 36V tool did I buy a pair of 5.0Ah batteries along with a
