best "cheap" ink cartridge source: where?

I'm looking for a reputable source for cheap ink cartridges for my HP PhotoSmart printer....

Can anyone recommend a place they have dealt with? There seems to be so many, and I've heard conflicting stories about quality.


(i did a forum search, but didn't find anything, btw)

Just make sure you get authentic and brand new ones. When I was in the army, the office I worked in used to use cheap recycled toner for our HP laser printers. It would always spill and clog up the printer and we would pay $150 for an onsite call for a tech to clean it with a special cleaner. He also recommended we use HP toner cartridges.

I took his advice and the problems went away. They cost 3 times as much, but they also lasted longer and we didn't have to pay $150 for the onsite calls anymore. So in the end we saved money.
