On my HP all in one, the print heads are part of the ink cartridge so every time I replace a cartridge I get a new head. The good side of that is if print heads clog up all I have to do is replace the ink cartridge. The bad side is the ink cartridges are likely more expensive as a result and/or the print heads are likely of lesser quality than a more expensive model with them built in. I'm happy with the quality of my printed pictures and I probably print just often enough to keep my heads from drying up.

It's pretty well known that printer companies give away the printer at a loss and make their money on the ink and toner.

I wish somebody would have told me that when I spent $700 dollars on one printer (Epson 2200) and $400 on another (Epson R800) -That was 8 years ago, however the ink for those printer hasn't risen significantly over time.

Still, I get your point

BTW I'm still using both printers, in fact I've been printing photos with them all day.
