*Note that Epson printers often report the cartridge as empty when there is still ink remaining. With single-use ink cartridges that remaining ink is wasted, so you really don't get the full value. With reusable and refillable ink cartridges, the chip resets to full.
This is the best value if you don't have a Staples or OfficeDeport nearby or can't be bothered to return empty ink tanks for store credit. Just 12 cents per ml!
This is the best value if you plan on returning the empty ink tanks to Staples or OfficeDepot for $2 in store credit for each. Just 7 cents per ml!
