    Need help finding a printer that takes cheap ink 13th Feb 18 at 8:58 AM
    Ive never had a printer before but i know from the past they make there money on the inks

    I want it to be wireless and can print,fax and copy i will only really use black ink for forms and letters.I want the ink to be really cheap and the printer doesnt have to be the latest and greatest also i would like a small black one.

    Cheers

    Do not buy genuine ink - ie) Epson costs around £10 per cartridge
    I can get at least 30 for £20 from various Amazon retailers
    So - choose your printer, based on what cartridges are available

    Get a mono laser if you are only printing black

    One way to find out which printers have cheap ink is to do a search on eBay for printer cartridges. Select only "buy it now" listings and sort in order of price.

    I used to be able to get cartridges for my old inkjet printer for about £1 to £1.50.
