|The advantage of the Kodak ones is their cartridges are a decent size and the cartridges are relatively cheaper than all other OEM ones. However, nobody refills them so far as I know. |
The cheaper HP and Lexmark ones have tiny cartridges - a poor choice, in the long run.
Obviously, the more ink capacity of the cartridges, the less it will cost you in the long run.
You can buy already refilled original (e.g. "re-manufactured") cartridges on the web for your HP printer and not have to fuss with refilling them yourself, for about half the price of new cartridges, or less.
I have refilled older Canon BC-02 and BC-20 cartridges myself for years, the same cartridge as many as a dozen times.
Newer cartridges have a chip that must be re-set after you have refilled the cartridge, so you need a re-setting device as well as ink.
If you do a lot of printing, get a color laser printer - they're generally cheaper than they've ever been. The toner cartridges cost more, but it can be a very long time before you have to change them, and they can often be refilled locally for a lot less than buying a new one. .
