they should have compared the cost of Kodak printer ink, you get about 7 pages (if your lucky!) per cartridge.

I got myself a Kodak printer. I don't print that often but the thing lasts longer and costs less than the HP ink cartridges. You get a free printer from HP if you buy enough ink here in the UK.

I just use a business class laser printer (not one of the cheapo consumer models) - you will get good cost per print.

Lol yeah offset by the extra cost of the printer itself.

 

I've got 2 HP laser printers, both work fine with genuine HP toner costing £80 each but if using refilled/3rd party toner it's always got lines of ink down every sheet printed and looks pretty bad quality and smudges easily, but is less than half the price each.

I thought the more interesting claim in that graphic is that bottled water is more expensive than crude oil...

Sounds like a printer issue. My Oki prints perfectly fine using 3rd party toner and is so cheap to print with it is almost free...

It's all dependant upon the third party toner you get, all the 3rd party stuff here is just crap.
