Hi Dan, I used to refill the "non-refillable" cartridges on my old H-P inkjet printer. I used an aftermarket device that looked like a hypodermic needle from a really bad "B" movie. You could refill a cartridge twice in this way before you had to toss it out. It DID save me a few bucks in the 'old' days ... YMMV. [Experiential note: Take the cartridge and the ink outside - to a remote area - to do the re-inking. Don't try doing this in the house. This operation has (or at least it used to have) plenty of opportunity to make a heck of a mess!] HTH, RonL. -----Original Message----- From: Daniel S. O'Shea [mailto:doshea at surfree.com] Past decade I've owned inkjet printers made by Canon. Have been satisfied with their products, but since I need a new one, I was wondering if anyone knew about the 'refiller' type printers. Are they worth looking into and are they really cheaper than the non-refillable cartridges and do they work as well?
