Quick Look at Silo Ink’s Refillable Ink Cartridges

By

SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD/IWORLD 21012 — Silo Ink’s refillable ink cartridges are the last inkjet cartridges you’ll ever buy, according to the company. It offers a lifetime replacement guarantee to back that up.

Once installed, the cartridges are refilled from bottles of ink, which cost about $15 and are good for 10 refills. A special chip that makes the cartridges appear as new to the printer after a refill.

A set of refillable cartridges cost between $100 and $200, depending on how many you need for your printer.

Here’s a quick look at the system, which is being showcased here at Macworld.

    Still cheaper to just buy a new printer.

    I take mine to Costco and get a refill for 9.99 each, and that last me about 6 months so this would not benefit me.

    This product is not new nor is it revolutionary. I actually already been using UltraGamut refillable cartridges AND continuous ink systems for the past 6 years from http://www.UltraGamut.com

    Hotzone360.com has the same stuff for less than 1/2 half the price

    Hi Friar,
    While there are some inexpensive printers on the market, what you get for that price doesn’t have a whole lot of value.  You are given just 1 set of cartridges with the purchase of that printer, which will last you anywhere from 100 – 500 pages.  Our products will allow you to print up to 5000 pages on just 1 set of refill bottles.  I can not argue with your point on price, but if we’re talking about value, Silo Ink’s refillable cartridges and refill bottles offer much more value than a new printer + 1 set of cartridges.

    This wouldn’t be beneficial to me. I got 4 complete sets of 5 ink cartridges for my Canon printer on Amazon for something like $30, and I can do that as many times as necessary. The cost of this system would never be more economical.

    I think the replaceable cartridge is more reasonable in price than this one.
