      Not in this case.. see the Q and the A.. I m sure it is possible, but the thing the manufacturer is trying to convey is throw away as often as possible and buy

        I'm sure it is possible, but the thing the manufacturer is trying to
        convey is throw away as often as possible and buy new from US... and as
        long as we are translating a manual/website as opposed to stirring up a
        revolution, we should convey the intended meaning..
        After all, this is standard practice, one step more user-friendly and
        less unethical than installing a kurvi'tko/fuck-up device (see Wiki)
        IMHO..

        Users that are not complete morons will know you can actually have ink
        cartridges refilled and will do their own thing... but AFAICR refilling
        ink cartridges is a messy business and they often dry up once
        opened/tampered with (as will the unused inks) - maybe the technology
        changed dramatically, but I remember having to do all sorts of tricks
        to get things going when I had an ink printer back in my pro-photo
        days.. both colour and B&W lasers are so cheap now that an ink printer
        only makes sense for a highly specialised and very consistent and
        frequent use these days, IMHO..

        ... Got a bit distracted there, but the message definitely is that (as
        far as the text in question is concerned) the cartridges are only good
        for throwing away once they run out of ink (and they probably run out
        of ink sooner than they'd have to)..

          I switched to refilled ink cartridges because of the expense of new ones from the manufacturer. They came from a "reputable" company and smelled different but worked fine until they ate away my printer's ink nozzles.
