I'm looking into the precision color ink refills as a more cost effective (and for me space saving) option. I've gotten by upgrading printers buying whatever is on Craigslist for the cost of set of branded ink refills and more recently jumped on that free paper deal. Now I have too many unused printers in the basement that I need to get rid of and several boxes of paper.
I'm on the Precision Color website and I'll probably just get the 32 oz kit with a full set of cartridges... what do you think?
Advice? What should I know?
For example, what does "purge" mean? I don't understand the process and reasons for it below.
Dont replace 1 cart at a time if your refilling. everytime you replace a cart the printer will purge all 8 carts. So then you are wasting alot of ink then you will be on a cycle of replacing one cart every week cause of it and purging all 8 each time. Then once the pads in the printer are 100 saturated they cannot take anymore from purges or cleaning the printer is basically dead. I have 2 sets so when 1 ink cart is low and about to run out i swap all 8 out. so its only 1 purge cycle and then refill all the ones i pulled ready to go in the next time 1 goes low. so you are doing ALOT less ink purges and saving alot of ink
