I just want to add that my printer has been printing almost better then ever. However the paper just out of the printer has a slight fried chicken smell. Weird huh? Chicken scented ink? Me thinks so.

I've been refilling 2 Canon MP830s with MSI ink from InkSupply.com for awhile now with nice results. I have plugged up the printhead before but have had no problems since I got the chip reseter. This allows me to use the ink level measuring system so I never run a cartridge dry, that's what causes the problems. I have refilled the same set
of cartridges at lease 5 times now.

I find that having 2 sets of cartridges works the best so that you are not leaving the print head uncovered when refilling and so the ink has plenty of time to saturate the sponge after you fill it.

Consumer Reports says no. The wastage you end up with from clogged jets or from reprinting poor pages turns out to offset the saving on refills. However, as with any quantitative economic statement, your mileage may vary.
