Default Remanufactured Ink Cartridges

Are they any good, or should I spend the extra $10 for a new one?

Well I was given this printer by a relative and don't even know if it works. Staples has got a black cartridge for $14.60. I figure if the printer doesn't work, I'd only be out that much. At the same time, I don't want ink splattered all over the walls either.

I guess the main thing that I'm concerned about is ink flooding the bottom of the printer. Because right now, I've got the thing REAL clean.

thats the least of your worries, what happens most of the time is the cheap ink clogs your print head, and you can get it clean.
Then you got to spend $40-100 for a new print head(*) depending on your printer. and most of the time they cost as much as the printer.

So you're saying that it'* not so much as the cartridge that'* the problem, but the ink itself?
