Printer Ink Cartridges
Printer inks are incredibly expensive here in UK. I do think the same ink might be 50% cheaper in Malaysia. Somewhere in the middle the prices went sky rocketing.
A pair of ink (black & color) would cost you so much, that the third time you buy the inks it would have covered the price of your printer. Sometimes it is better to buy a new printer if your ink cartridge has depleted.
Currently I'm searching for ways to do ink refills, and as you might guessed, those too are expensive. Maybe laser printers would be the best choice... well, there is no rush in that.
