I buy generic brand cartridges on eBay. My printer can't always read the ink levels from them, but they do work. Saves me quite a bit of money! For instance: One magenta cartridge probably runs me $14-18 normally, but I just bought a set of 3 cartridges (one of each color: magenta, cyan, yellow) for a total of $12 on eBay and it was even free shipping. Also just bought 5 black cartridges for about $15 total (normally they'd be about $13 each).
~I get generics on Ebay too. Cartridges for my Epson printer are soooo cheap! For $12, shipping included, I can get a set of 4 black ink cartridges and 2 color cartridges. I've never had any trouble with generics, even when printing photos and t-shirt transfers.~
