Don’t Buy Cheap Ink

Okay, I admit it.  I am cheap.  I don’t pay full price when I don’t have too.

However, being cheap has it’s problems.  You see, sometimes, it leads to consequences that you don’t want.

Well, I am a big talk radio junkie, and I happened to hear about a company that sells ink for inkjet printers.  I figured it was a better deal then what I can get in the store, so I went for it.

Sure it printed fine for the first little while, but now it has completely messed up my system.

You see about a month after I started using the cheap ink.  I noticed that the banding (or lines) started to appear in my print outs.  So, I performed a head cleaning.  That seemed to make things worse.  So, I did an alignment.  That was better.

But it soon became a battle between me and the printer.

Ever since, then I have sworn of the cheap stuff.  Actually, I went and forked out the dough to by four new ink cartidges (one of each color).  I was hoping that that would solve my problem.  But I still have banding.

So, the moral of this story is: DON’T BUY CHEAP INK!
