As you may remember from last week I was unable to get my black ink cartridge refilled at Costco so HP sent me another cartridge to be refilled. This time I went to a little shop less than a mile from my house called Ink 2 Go on Halsey in NE Portland. They had the same cartridge in stock, so I gave them mine and they handed me one that had already been refilled so I didn’t have to wait. The cost was only $8 and it worked on the first try! It was a relief to install it in my printer and have it work.
I then printed off documents from both printers for week 1 of the challenge. I have to say that the original HP cartridges did perform a little better. Both sets of documents look good, but there is a little bit of color banding visible on the documents printed with the refilled ink. I’ll be using the same cartridges throughout the challenge, so it will be interesting to see how the two types hold up over time.
