I have been printing some photos. And granted they use a lot of ink. I mean 2-3 ink catridges cost more than the printer. I know you can get recycled ones. But, are they really that expensive to make? Or is this just serious price gouging. For example my Hp deskjet printer uses 2 different catridges a black and tri-color. If I get a genuine HP color catridge I pay around $33 dollars. If I use a recycled one it costs around $20. And it seems they don't last too long.
