3rd party ink suppliers are as good as the OEM provided they stand behind their product. Saddly all too often pre-packaged ink carts sold in stores are of 3rd world source. -OR- a large supplier using 3rd world sources. They do work and for the most part for plain text, do well. The only fault is I don't trust them for photo or truly archival outputs, so think carefully. Great for draft and general output. I tend to use office outlet ink carts to save "alittle $" not much but if they fail, I can easily return them and only did that once. If "dated" read it and don't trust any over 12mo. usually with 1-10mo. is best., IMHO. The choice is yours and don't forget online sources, I suggest inkfarm and carrot ink, google for them.

I dislike all in one products for a couple of reasons.

1. They seem to have a plethora of compatibility isses
2. If one part breaks they are all gone.

I do my faxing VIA Free Call Center and my scanner, and have room for a printer and a scanner. Even if I neeed a fax machine, I would make room for a stand alone. Your mileage may vary.
