Original Ink Cartridges better than 3rd party ink?
I was wondering if you folks buy original Epson/HP/Canon ink, or also ink from 3rd party (like Pelikan or refill options). And if so: do you experience less quality?
I have a Canon i550, so I have one black cartridge and 3 seperate colour cartridges. One 13 ml cartridge costs about 12 euro from Canon and 8 euro from Pelikan (3rd party). I have the feeling that 3rd party ink isn't quite the same quality when you're printing HQ pictures (like covers).
And are you also using the advised paper (so Canon paper for a Canon printer, HP paper for a HP printer, etc.)? Or do you use 3rd party photopaper when you're printing in High Quality?
