Suggestion about printer?

What about Epson WorkForce WF-2750DWF?
Ive found a great deal (-50%).
Am I able to refill its cartridges?

I would not recommend trying to refill the ink cartridges as they could cause numerous problems potentially even some which could cause damage to your printer. Epson has a EcoTank series of printers which can be refilled with bottles of ink stored in multiple color coordinated tanks. I would recommend a laser printer for most people as the price per page is going to be much lower than of inkjets and they can print pages generally more quickly when compared to a inkjet printer, Epson printers have usually very unreasonable costs per ink on most of their printers to the point that the printer is sometimes cheaper than the ink. So, I would do some research and try to find one with the features you need and with a low cost per page to print. In order to find how much it costs per page to print you take the cost of the ink/toner and divide by the page yield which is associated with it. If you do not need color printing then there are monochrome laser printers which only use one toner cartridge filled with black colored toner.

Thank you very much.

My friend owns the following printer.

 

Do you think its cartridges are cheaper?

It depends on if you want multiple cartridges or only one for black and one for color. If one color runs out (for example cyan) then you have to replace the whole cartridge which might contain other colors like magenta which you could have still used. This could cause more operating expense although it depends. Most printers are actually sold at a loss in order to then make more money from getting people to buy their expensive cartridges. 

 

Some printers which I would recommend and which have a low cost per page to print:

 

-Dell 1320C 

this printer can be purchased at :   https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Color-Laser-Printer-1320c-/253584311274

- toner purchase links for this printer:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1PK-New-1320-Yellow-Toner-Cartridge-For-Dell-Color-Laser-1320-1320C-Printer/252300250805?epid=686172589&hash=item3abe444eb5:g:jUMAAOSwPc9Wz8dK:rk:9:pf:0

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1PK-New-1320-Cyan-Toner-Cartridge-For-Dell-Color-Laser-1320-1320C-Printer/252300250806?hash=item3abe444eb6:g:CYAAAOSwFNZWz8bh:rk:10:pf:0

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1PK-New-1320-Magenta-Toner-Cartridge-For-Dell-Color-Laser-1320-1320C-Printer/262307641838?epid=1538924854&hash=item3d12c0f9ee:g:HbcAAOSwG-1Wz8dR:rk:11:pf:0

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1PK-Color-Laserjet-1320-Black-Toner-Cartridge-for-DELL-Color-Laser-1320c-USA-SEL/130783664999?hash=item1e73505b67:g:w9UAAOxyk99Ry-Ln:sc:ShippingMethodStandard!28277!US!-1:rk:5:pf:0

 

*Note that the printer may cost a little more than others although the toner cartridges are really cheap for many pages (around 2000 each).

 

Other wise I would recommend the Samsung M2830DW Monochrome Laser Printer (which I was able to buy at black Friday for fifty dollars) although I bought it for very accurate black prints and more importantly for being very reliable and not for lowest cost per page. The toner is around 17 dollars for 3000 pages if bought from eBay which I have and have not had any issues with the compatible toner. Inkjets can have their ink dried out, print nozzles becoming clogged, etc which can end up with higher costs of ownership and additional maintenance.

Thank you very much. AI'll see what to do. Also, my friend had his color ink ran out and he wants to refill it. The printer costs 25, so he doesnt care if it breaks down. What ink would you recomment from ebay?

The printer is the  Canon Pixma MG2550S

If you want ink that is re-manufactured for this printer and do not want to refill it then:   https://www.ebay.com/itm/PG245XL-CL246XL-PG240XL-241XL-PG210XL-CL211XL-PG40-CL41-Ink-Cartridges-for-Canon/173527884438?hash=item2867116296:m:mkRt9CWJHlrJDIRgvdgHZ3g

These both seem to be advertised to be compatible with the Cannon MG2550s I tired to find other ones on Germany's eBay page although even with google translations on the page it was still in German which I am unfortunately not able to comprehend. Either of these should work although I would select the one with more ink per cost which would make the cost per page to print cheaper. Make sure that you also have a drill instrument handy as you will need to drill into the cartridge of ink in order to add ink to it.
