My System Specs

Default Lexmark $4.99 ink carts?

Just saw an ad for lexmark printers which promoted the fact that some of their lines have high yield (500 sheet) black carts for $4.99. So far (quick look), the one I've come up with is this model which is discontinued.....

Looks like it might only be on their higher end business MFPs, but it's certainly a move in the right direction if we can convince other printer manufacturers to go the same route.

Anybody else heard anything on this? From the google search I did, it appears that this has been around since last spring... seems strange that I didn't hear anything about it.

edit: Here's one that doesn't appear to be EOL.....

It's pricy, but at least it's a duplex MFP.

Yeah saw it in the Staples flyer a few days ago. Although the colour ink is the more typical $50ish.

I'd say your mainly paying for that colour touchscren though. If they removed that, the printer would probably be closer to $150.

My X7675 has been running pretty well for a few years now. It also uses XL cartridges, but at the normal price of $50. I still get quite a few pages out of it and it has duplex along with Ethernet and WiFi.
