There are diffent ways to measure quality. One is price versus number of
pages. This works if you are printing material where longevity is not an
important issue. I also produce high quality art prints that are displayed
in galleries and entered in juried art shows. My quality standards stress
consistant color matching and print longevity. I follow Wilhelm Imaging
Associates (http://www.wilhelm-research.com/) suggestions. They are the
standard for testing color imagery (film, ink jet, etc.). So, before you
purchase non-factory ink jet cartridges, determine what you are looking
for in your output. Off brand ink cartridges may work for you and they
will reduce your operating costs. They just won't work for me.
