This is why these bottom of the line printers are so cheap, cuz they get you on the ink. You are better off paying a little more for the printer to save on ink, usually the printers with individual carts have cheap generic ink available and if the generic ink breaks the printer (over time) then who cares because you saved so much on ink that it by far paid for itself. The Canon MX922 last I checked ink was about $1.50 per cartridge (on Amazon in bulk for generic) and it uses 5 carts, you can recycle at Staples for $2/cart so make a little money on each cart (or maybe break-even after buying $30 of ink per 180 days). I used the same logic when I bought my Canon MX870 and it by far paid for itself, I pay about 35¢ - 70¢ per cart and recycle @ $2 so I'm making money every time I print! when I bought the printer ink wasn't that cheap but still worth it, as the printer gets older the ink goes down in price. The MX922 and similar are probably going to get replaced soon with new printer/ink so ink should start dropping in price soon. Was able to pick up a MX922 for a friend a few weeks ago for about $90 so yeah, more than $25 but worth it for the ink (and its a way better printer than the MG2520).
