Better value than the XL cartridges!
on 5 June 2014
At the time of writing, this set is being sold at £28.53. These contain 7ml of ink, comapred to the XL cartridges which are 11ml. So the equivalent price for the XL cartridges would be £28.53 x 11 / 7, which is £44.84. Amazon are selling a full set of the XL cartridges for £59.48. This does also include the PG550XL, which costs £12.45 on its own. So the equivalent cost of the XL cartidges for comparison is £59.48 - £12.45, which is £47.03. If you're still with me, you'll now have realised that buying these smaller cartridges is better value than buying the XL ones, which isn't what you would have expected.
It's a different matter if you're buying individual cartridges, where the XL size is better value.
