There's more to it than just wasted ink. People assume an individual cart printer is more economical than a printer that uses a multi ink cartridge. But it all depends on ink volume and cart cost. Just because the 2100/2200 huses individual tanks doesn't mean it's going to be more economical to run. If the carts cost $12 each, then a whole set will cost $79. A black and colored cart for the 1270/80 will $45-$50. Will the ink ones saves by using individual tanks make up for the increased price? I don't know. But we can't assume anything until we know the tank costs, ink volumes, and ink consumption rate of the 2200. --- Ursula Freer <art@UrsulaFreer.com> wrote: > You may be saving the expense of buying two printers, but you'd be spending > money on the wasted ink by changing from one set to another. > > Ursula > > But if the 2200 prints b&w as good as the reviews claim, it could save > > me the expense of buying two separate printers--a 1280 for color, and a > > 3000 (or used 1160) with piezography drivers/inks for b&w. > > > > Dan > > > > - > Turn off HTML mail features.
