    No good, these are Canon ones, as you say big and expensive, £60/£70 a piece to buy.

    If you can point me in the direction of £60-70 ones I’ll bite their hands off lol
    They’re best part of £100 trade, there’s not a lot of margin. My Mrs place are an HP reseller and they’ve given up on ink as there’s no money in it.

    No can do, no longer touch HP plotters, mainly Canon hence £60/£70 cartridges, just so much wastage with them, cannot move them without draining the ink out, that’s half your set of inks gone, then the other half goes when it’s set up again, plus in doing so, the maintenance cartridge fills, that’s another £50/£60

    Lol, I’m toying with a getting a Canon next. The last 2 HP’s have been pretty unreliable which surprised me. I had my 650 for over 10 years and never had the service engineers out once but these last 2, well, at one point I thought the fella was living in my office!!
    Maybe they’re just a bit too complicated these days?

    sad that for domestic users its cheaper to get a new unit and use the complementary inks and repeat,

    is there a good lease option on any of them these days?

    I bought a bargainous colour laser printer/scanner with flatbed and document feed, around 3 years ago for £180 and it's still using the ink it came with. It's a Brother DCP 9020CDW. Running costs so far zero
    Interface with various iThings in the house is flawless too.
    I wanted to print stuff out that doesn't run when it gets wet mostly, but this is by far the best printer I've ever owned.

    Brother stuff is pretty ok, had a couple in the office until recently.
