When Hp sell you a new printer (Officejet 8100) they only give you starter cartridges with it which hold a very small amount of ink in them Hp 950 black and the Hp 951 colour cartridges c/m/y (STARTER CARTRIDGES). I was using about 3 black and 2 each of the colours cartridge per month and it was costing me a small forturne. I later found out that Hp do a higher yield versions of the 950 and 951 cartridges which cost only a few pounds more but hold far more ink in them than the starter cartridges which I was using before. What you need is a HP 950XL on the black which hold 53mls of ink rather than the 24mls of ink that is in the 950 starter cartridge and on the colour what you should be using is a HP 951XL cartridges which holds 17mls each rather than the 8mls which is in the 951 colour starter cartridges. I can even go one better, I now use a company called advantage online who stock the Hp originals 950/951XL's plus do a British premium compatible 950XL and 951XL cartridges which hold a impressive 86mls black and 26mls per colour. I have used them a couple of times so far and have been quite impressed. I hope you don't fall into the Hp trap of selling a very good printer (Officejet 8100) at a very cheap price and then trying to charge you load of money for starter cartridges which are nearly empty.
