I bought a Brother 2130 mid-2010, do all of my business printing on it and it's still not had it's cartridge replaces, that's probably 1000's of pages, printer ranges from $100 to $130, so is really good value, new cartridges about $90, so if and when it runs out, I may just get a new one.  Only black and white though

depends on your printer brand as to cost per sheet.
we always have used epson as their inks are not very expensive and always
seem to last plus they have their own brand budget inks.
i always found cannon and hp to be very expensive.

i'd agree with Stu on the mono laser printers, they last for ages, and are so cheap these days

mines an epson.
do a lot of printing cause it's too hard to read so many articles on the computer and it's easier to have them on hand for assignments.

not worried about cost per sheet...just any potential damage (so i've heard) to the printer from refills as opposed to new cartridges.

If something goes wrong with the printer, if they can prove you used refills, it gives them the right to void the warranty. But if it's not an expensive printer and/or is past it's warranty, then no reason why not. They refills can save a few buckeroos
