The 920 cartridges can be refilled running on HP6500. I have done this since May 2010. Just do before it run of ink or giving you warning. I have also bought the aftermarket emptry cartidge and it works too. You just have to move the little computer chip to the new cartidge. A relatively simple job using a razor blade to remove it. The left over glue on the chip is good enough to stick to the new cartridge.

Thank you for the information. I don't print too much but have always refilled the cartridges for many years. I did not upgrade my two old HP printers because I suspect the newer cartridges cannot be refilled. The manufacturers want to sell ink cartridges (can't blame them, it is liquid gold). I bought this printer already. Hopefully the ink cost isn't too excessive.

Welcome. Having the 920XLs refilled is more expensive than your home refills, but it's cheaper than buying HP-Gold". The big XL black is rated around 1200+ pages. I set the software preferences for "grayscale", "fast draft" and "light ink" coverage, and it looks great for everyday use and quite economical. Color is turned on only as needed. Excellent printer -- have not seen any delays in printing that others have mentioned. Really like it. Best of luck!

My 6500 Model E709A has a 920XL black cartridge and regular 920 cartridges for color. That's all the room there is for them in the cartridge carrier. I don't see how the color XL cartridges could possibly fit in it. The black XL is twice as wide as the regular 920s. Are the color XLs just taller, maybe?

I can't confirm that it's an ink-sucking pig. I do know that commercial ink cart stores (like Cartridge World) will refill the 920 series carts for a reasonable price, much cheaper than buying new carts. The larger "XL" sized carts (color and black) are very economical per page. Finally, you can set the software to print in draft and low-ink economy mode to conserve ink and save money.
If you do high volume work look for a cheap laser with a reloadable toner unit.
