I have an HP 895cse and the price for cartridges is ridiculous. I saw in Walwort that they sell refill kits for my black and color carts. For a third of the price and they will refill 5x!

Anyone have experience with these?

Thanks

Yeah, I tried to refill my Canon BJ-200 cartidge with one of those. It was horrible- got ink all over my desk and me, and it didn't last very long in its refilled state. Although, for about 5 bucks, its a pretty good deal- just do it somewhere that can get ink all over.

I've used them...

Other than staining my fingertips purple for a few days, I had no problems with them...

Of course, I'm a painter, so everyone is used to seeing me with various colours stained on my hands/fingers/clothes/face...

leaking?

Thanks guys. I'm not worried about my hands but worried about inside the printer. Have you guys seen any leaking inside your printer from the refilled carts.

I haven't. Just make sure the print heads are clean before you put the refilled cartridges back in.
