Does anyone know of any third party substitues for Dell printer ink
cartridges. My printer is a Dell Photoe 924. For the amount I spent on
cartridges last year I could have bought the pritner twice over.

Many of Dells printers have historically been made by
Lexmark and Samsung, you might see if one of their models
has identical ink cartridge then search for the respective
generic replacement carts.

You might also check for cartridges and refill kits on ebay
(though I dont' have this printer, can't tell you if any
particular refill kit works well and matches color good or
not), but for example:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Dell-922-942-96...EFILL-KIT_W0QQitemZ250201693327QQcmdZViewItem

A Google shopping search may also turn up a few,

I would look for a printer with lower ink cost.

This is down to the pricing of printers. The cost of the printer generates
little profit to the manufacturers - they make their money in ink sales.
Have you looked into refilling yourself?

I think many dell printers are actually manufactured by lexmark, so check
if this is the case and then search for the appropriate refill kit.

Yes, Lexmark and Samsung both make printers for Dell, but it
doesn't necessarily mean you can buy the cartridge or refill
kit for the other-brand, at least in one case I know Dell
spec'd an otherwise identical cartridge but with a fuse in
it that blows preventing buying anything other than the Dell
branded cartridge (or a refill kit that comes with new fuse
too). That fuse was on a laser toner cartridge so I am not
sure it's direclty applicable to inkjets, but it does
suggest Dell isn't above going the extra mile to try and
force customers to buy their branded refills and that one
should investigate further whether it applies to this
particular model.

In that case, I would prefer to buy another inkjet and make sure I can
refill the cartridges easily. The cost of a few cartridges would justify
the cost of a new printer.

Selling the old printer can easily reduce the cost of the new one, and
these things are pretty cheap these days. I would avoid spending more than
70 euros on an inkjet and 100 euros on an inkjet/scanner.

I doubt you could sell a used printer w/o ink for enough to
make it worth the bother, unless it was one that we desired
and wouldn't get rid of because it did accept cheap generic
refills.

Indeed, you are right. I would just toss the thing away and get done with
it.
