Default Printer help.

I'm looking to buy a printer and my budget is quite small. I found this:

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=96319

What I mainly want to know is, would this printer accept cheap ink cartridges. I don't want to have to buy a printer only to be paying £25/$43 for an ink cartridge.

Also, I'd need a USB cable. Would this one work?

Thanks for the help

Buy printer cartridge refill kits. A hell of a lot cheaper than buying new cartridges, but it voids your warranty.

Try the Pixma line (canon):

I have the IP2000. It's better than the one I posted - slightly. The cartridges are ridiculously cheap. Even considering the capacity differences of these cartridges, I think it is still extremely cheap. I got the ngear brand replace cartridges - not genuine canon.

After Cdn to US conversion, I paid about $2 for the black cartridges and about $4 for the color cartridges. They are equivalent to the BCI 24 B/C cartridges from Canon.
