Editor's Notes

January 09, 2019: Given the fact that most of these companies design their printers to be relatively inexpensive with the hopes of hooking you on their ink, it's tough to guarantee that the prices of replacement cartridges will hold where they are. Still, the choices here are among the most affordable when it comes time to re-up. HP and Epson have a number of entries, with Epson's EcoTank inkwell system a pretty smart way to keep costs down.
