arnt all ink prices rediculous unless you can find a refurb'd cartridge.? I think I saw a refill kit on the net that was relativly cheap. how well they work, I have no idea. but this printer does have like 5 cartridges or something, so it very well may be pricey.
It's relatively expensive. I think the cheapest I found was a refurb kit.. it's around $10 for black and $15 for color, which means a total of around $55 to refit the printer.
On amazon, if you had a brother printer, you could get a full set of refills (4 black and 2 of each color) for $10.
