Walgreens has just start professional inkjet refilling. There
average refill is 15 dollars. Most cartridge refills are around 50
percent of the cost of a new one. Walgreens is a well know
retailler with quality products and great customer service. I know
alot about there service as i am a Cetified photo specialist at
walgreens winghaven in Ofallon Missouri 63368 and i have refilled
these several times. Also if you sign up for a corporate account
on photo finishing you get a 15 percent discount on film, (must
actually be a business or school) That 15 percent also applies
ontop of the 50 of inject refills. so you could get you injet
refills at 65 off the cost of a new one if you qualify for
corporate account. Thanks for your time and happy injet refilling
to everyone!

Aside from the fact that he works for Walgreens, wouldn't you want an unbiased recommendation?

I have used re-filled/sealed cartridges for my HP all-in-one and the ones from Cartridge World didn't work very well. The printer kept telling me that one or the other cartridge was missing, when I had just replaced it. I bought one from PostNet and it worked fine, although it ran out faster than I expected. Kinko's has the 27 Black one for $17.95 and the refills cost $16.95, so I don't save much for the PITA. Other brands may work better but for mine, it's not worth the trouble.
