    I get all of my ink from LD Products at www.ldproducts.com. They have good refils and really decent prices. They also have monthly coupons for previous purchasers.

    What's better, they even have the tools necessary to bypass those unbearably unethical and anti-competitive chips that f{censored}ing bastard companies like Lexmark and Epson have installed onto some of their cartridges in order to force you to buy only their cartridges.

    I've purchased remanufactured ink cartridges locally a couple times, but each time the ink quality/print quality is sub-par, and even screws up the printer a bit.

    Will these cartridges have 100% compatibility with printers???

    (Both my old printer which i've used refurbed ink carts and the enw one, which has not are Hewlett Packards)

    If you don't mind buying a 3-pack, Costco is the cheapest I've found for HP 56 & 57 (they stock other brands as well).
