Well I for one am interested in saving money. I tried the cheap OEM ink
from Frys (I sorry I don't remeber the name) and the color was off, the
prints looked faded and the black wasn't all it's supposed to be.  Considering
that it was only marginally less expensive I didn't think it much of a
bargin. But 
I have to admit that was about 6 months ago and I haven't tried any

I also freely admit to paying too much for some of the heavier papers,
in my rational mind I *know* that once it's framed you can't tell, but I
still love the feel of the paper in my hand. It seems to have more texture,
but that's probebly my imagination.

On the whole I do consider cost one of the factored to be balanced. For
instance I have a sample of "Etching Board Naterual White 310" that
I *loved*. That is I loved it till I found out it was $7 a sheet! (still maybe
for my birthday ;-)

But I do understand, and somewhat agree.
