If that $25 Lexmark is like most printers, it came with a starter cartridge, which has far less capacity than a standard one. Regardless, with the cost of new cartridges, you'd probably still break even by buying a new unit each time.

Is that not what I said? Printers are disposable now.

My office neighbor, a computer geek-for-hire, goes from office-to-office asking everyone for their empty copier toner and printer cartridges. He buys wholesale inks and toners in bulk and found a way to refill - reselling to others for 50% off list.

I haven't yet trusted his bootleg refills and declined all his attempts at selling them to me. Maybe he's on to something?

I see that at NewEgg at the moment for $195 w/free shipping.

Customer reviews complain about tiny ink cartridges. Have you found that to be a problem?

Thanks for the report. Was the quality poor for text or pictures, or both?
