I found if you continue to use the regular "non-XL" cartridges (a B&W and Color one of the regular cartridges generally come w/ the printer when you purchase it) - the printers are some of the worst in the industry for the price per printed page. But, using these can get you more than twice as many printed pages and lowers the on-going cost to make it one of the best available options. (There's actually a page on the Lexmark site that Amazon won't let me provide a link to that shows all of their cartridges and price per cost of sheet printed that demonstrates the point much better.)
Here's a couple of TIPS on ways I use that also extend use of these, though they may only work for you, if like me, there are only occassions that you need to print something out in crisp color:
- My default setting for printing is a quick, draft, black and white version. And, when printing a web page - I choose the "text only" option and specify the number of pages. I've set up a second "profile" that is for Best Quality Color - I use only on very limited occassions.
- I just completely ignore when Lexmark tells me to change to the cartridge. At least on mine, I've found that it has a long way to go before it actually runs out - when their software is telling me it needs to be changed immediately. In fact, even when either the black or the color cartridge says it's totally out - it will still give you the option of continuing to print w/ some variation of whichever cartridge still has ink.
Bottom Line: These are the cartridges you need if you want to run your Lexmark more affordably.
pay the extra few bucks for a better ink cartridge.
Flash forward to me getting this Lexmark printer. I got it at a phenomenal price from a Brick & Mortar big box store and the printer had two regular cartridges included in the box. Because of this, I was not even thinking about pricing these cartridges because the bundle (Printer + B&W + Magenta cartridge) was under $30! Yes, it was on sale, but still..
So, imagine my shock when I ran out of the free ink and came online to buy replacements. Never in a million years would I have guessed that a single cartridge would cost as much as the Printer and two Cartridges would! Well, that is OK I thought because I will just buy the refills from Sophia. Nope. When I got my printer, NONE of the ink sellers even made refills for my printer. In fact, you could not even buy the do it yourself refill kit for the 36/37. Since I love my printer so much I decided to buy a 4-pack from Staples because I had earned the rewards and also had a non-restricted 20% discount coupon. I figured that I would simply give the printer away or trash it if the cartridge price did not fall when the four pack ran out.
Not long after I had a health issue that sidelined me from my internet business for 6 months. Therefore, between the time that four cartridges lasted and the duration of my illness, I was very pleased to see that the 36/37 was offered as refills. I was pleased until my eyes traveled to the left and realized that the refills were relatively expensive as well.Read more ›
Don't waste your time or money on the third party cartridges! (every once in a while I think I'll save some money and do just that - and end up disappointed... that's what happened before I ordered this)... the OEM cartridges last longer and are more reliable than those, and the last batch of 3rd party cartridges I bought ended up costing me more because 3 of the 4 ended up "running out" (clogging up) only a few pages in.
