Nobody wants to spend more than they need to on anything they buy. However, sometimes going cheap can give you sub-par quality. This is where we get the saying, ‘you get what you pay for'. With cheap ink cartridges, you can often fall into the same problem. While many cheap ink cartridges will give you great results, others can cost you more than you bargained for. I decided to go with cheap ink cartridges a few months ago and it resulted in a printing nightmare. When my prints were coming out with lines in them, I removed the ink cartridge to try to clean it. When I took it out, it proceeded to bleed all over my hands and the other papers on my desk.
In my case, cheap ink cartridges cost me a half a bottle of soap and a ream of paper. I know others that have had trouble-free experiences with cheap ink cartridges, so there are some out there that are worth the risk. Just be sure to look for a guarantee on the goods before you buy.
