Ink & Image Durability – a study by CharisCo Printer Labs

Despite the fact that third party, or ‘compatible’, ink cartridges are priced to undercut the original cartridges from the printer manufacturer (often by a huge percentage), testing shows that the quality of the compatible inks and cartridges does not match the quality of the printer manufacturer’s original inks and cartridges, severely compromising the printed result and even the health of the printer itself. The user experience may be badly affected even if the costs of running the printer are reduced by buying the cheap ink.
