Anyone know of a good place where I can get these cheaply? Went into WHSmiths today and they tried to charge me £40 for one black cartridge!!! My printers not even worth that much!

I found this: ... -Cartridge but bit unsure about the quality/reliability of the cartridge.

Any site recommendations would be gratefully received.

Cheers, Rich.


  • Try CPC
  • IMO the compatible cartridges are as good as the originals. Just looked and CPC have the Lexmark for £20
  • Try here ... _id=106364

    I always get stuff from here.
  • Or you could try here

    I'd recommend both websites. I always buy from the 7dayshop or MX2 depending on who's cheapest.

    7dayshop or choice stationery for me.

    I use the manufacturer's carts until the 1 year warranty's up, then switch to compatibles.

    Last 3 printers have been Canon; don't know if it's the compatible carts but the print heads seem to clog irreparably after 4 or 5 years. Mind you, by then the technology has usually improved to the extent that it's worth buying a new printer anyway.

    Our new one is an iP4600 (already superseded by the near identical iP4700!) and produces amazing photo prints.

    I had a Lexmark printer a few years ago. Replacement ink cartridges cost more than the printer! Then it went wrong so I threw it out the window I hated it so much. The quality of it's printing was variable to say the least, so in replacing it, I bought an Epson instead which has been much better quality and ink cartridges are much more reasonably priced..............until that is it buggered up, but this time I think it was due to a driver software prob. I haven't been bothered to solve the problem as it is more time and cost effective to just pay to print out as and when on a quality printer at 10p a sheet.

    Think how stupid the average person is.......
    half of them are even more stupid than you first thought.

    I ordered cartridges at 13:00 the other day and got a mail at 13:05 saying my order had been despatched and arrived at 09:00 following morning.
