I've had an R2400 for a few months and haven't spent a lot of time with it. I'm already getting some low signals from several of the carts and will need to replace them. I'm sure this question has been asked, but where is a good, honest, reliable vendor that gives good prices on R2400 cartridges? The typical prices I've seen are around $14. Can I do better than that? I usually don't sweat the small stuff but this printer is not exactly frugal with ink (in fact, I'm pretty shocked at how fast it has run low). Getting a decent prices on carts with this printer is going to be pretty important.
I know what you mean. I have the same printer and have gone through a few sets of ink...
When I looked at atlex.com, their ink prices are really good at $11.50 per cart. But their cheapest shipping price with buying a set of carts for me was $10.72 to ship to California where I live. That is UPS ground which also takes days...
Their ink is $12.99 per cart, but their paper prices are very good, and their delivery is very fast. Many times I have placed orders online only to receive them next day. And the reason I even mentioned this is because if you spend $75 or more you get free shipping. That may be more cost efffective for you than going with atlex.
Here is some feedback. I ordered from Atlex.com. I was initially a little put out by the $9.90 shipping, and it might not be worth it if I were buying one cart at a time. But, I ordered all eight carts for my 2400 at $11.20 each. They arrived very quickly and for a package that size and that fast the $9.90 is definitely worth it. Very pleased. Thanks for the tip.
itsupplies.com. 2400 carts are 12.99 and they charge $5 for shipping. If your order is over $75, shipping is free. I live in NY, so there is no tax and...drum roll....I've never asked for expedited shipping, paying just the $5 "normal" charge and the carts have never been on my porch anytime OTHER than the the second day after I order. Said another way, your $5 gets you pretty close to 2nd day delivery. Last time i ordered, about a week ago, I place the order sunday night from my computer. The carts were here tuesday morning!
Another vote for Atlex. I've purchased printers and supplies from them for years now and have never had a problem. They're quick, honest, very professional, and their customer service is excellent. In fact, I just ordered a new Epson 3800 printer from them last week -- only $1149.99 with free shipping and handling.
