All In One In Jet Printers with The Least Expensive Cartridges

I am looking for an Ink Jet All In One Colour Printer with the least expensive ink cartridges that will print the most pages before cartridge replacement. Also would like to be able to print when one cartridge runs out and having just to replace the one cartridge. Also need a document feeder as well as being able to use legal size paper as well as regular paper.

The Kodak Printer used to be the best. Kodak has stopped making printers.

Any Ideas?

Canon inkjet are the low cost way to go.
Ebay canada has a guy in Vancouver (tonerdepot2010) that sell 2 sets of non-oem ink with the chip for less than $20.

Staples also usually has good prices on the canon printers.


Sale this week for $80 ($40 off) http://www.staples.ca/en/Canon-PIXMA...1_2-CA_1_20001

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

+1 for Canon inkjet. I use a fairly high volume of Canon ink jet cartridges (5 set), all remanufactured, good quality, with chips. Cost about half price of OEM.

I too can vouch for the Canon products. I have the PIXMA MG4120 All-In-One (minus Fax) and am very happy with it. Ink cartridges are very reasonably priced at Staples.

With these Cannon All In One Color Printers can you just print in black with having to replace the Color Cartridges when they run out?

Generally yes. Depends on the model. Just look at the specs to see how many cartridges it uses.

I have a Cannon MP560. I pay 20 bucks for a cartridge of black ink only.

My printer tried to give me error messages that the other tanks were out and it wouldn't print because of the error, but i found a way to bypass it online by holding the stop or print button , i cannot remember which atm. But yeah, haven't filled those other tanks in a while and it works.

But I've gotta admit, the tank doesn't last long. At all. I'm already looking at buying a lazerjet because of how quickly the ink dries up. I don't feel im getting my moneys worth on printing.

My opinions and time are all my own.

I use a Canon printer that is not an AIO. But it is a good photo printer with 5 cartridges, including big and small black ones. I get replacements from 123InkCartridges, and they are reliable suppliers and shippers with a huge range of carts available. Carts have chips and are fully compatible with Canon carts.

The Canon driver can be set to monochrome-only at time of printing, and I am quite sure that this uses only the black carts.

Carts can be replaced individually.
