As I have written before regarding HP cartridges, too expensive with a product that works as well as you have a right to hope it will for the price. If I were HP, I would stand on the corner of every city in the world giving away their printers by the millions. Then, when people find out how well they work and how they can no longer refill their cartridges in the privacy of their own home or office, they go to HP and Pay and Pay and Pay. What's not to love about that business model .... except that you did not think of it first. Truly they make a great product, however, when you look at the volume of fluid inside and the vast numbers they sell, one gets a deep sense of something I call "RIP OFF" and that irritates me each time I make this purchase. Their ink market is wrapped tighter than the corset on Lila Mae ... don't know Lila, trust me, she was strapped in like a forgotten back pack on the outside of the space shuttle.
