First lesson to learn before buying a brand name printer at a very low cost, consider the price of the ink cartridges. Most of the companies sell their printers at a surprisingly lower price in order to attract more customers through their marketing hype. A printer has no value with its complement, the even more costly printer ink cartridge. Lexmark is one among the many printer manufacturers who are earning a big profit from the sale of high cost cartridges than the price of their printers. With an extensive range of printer from Lexmark, the high expense of actually printing with this brand is almost unavoidable since the printer requires cost cartridges to do the printing job.
