holy hijack! start another inkjet vs laserjet thread

Old ink. I doubt you can use your old ink on a different model of printer. if you want to re-use your ink, make that a part of your replacement printer criteria (see if it's compatable). I find it highly unlikely you can _harvest_ the ink out of those old cart's and dump them into a HP cartridge or something.... plus very messy.

Epson is the only small form factor printer i know of that has a continuous ink system. HP does in the larger form factors (OfficeJet series). On top of that, you have the ability of printing 11x17 on most of their OfficeJet series (could be handy for large photo reproductions.)

Recycle the cartridges! Staples will take the old empties for recycling.
