Windows 7: Inkjet cartridge expired? Not necessarily...

Inkjet cartridge expired? Not necessarily...

I've had a Kodak Diconix 150+ portable inkjet printer for many years, but haven't used it in quite some time.

Just the other day I had a need for portable printing so I wondered if the Kodak still worked. Of course the cartridge that I had stupidly left in the thing wouldn't work, but I had several "new" ones still in the package.

Uh oh, the expiration dates are Aug 2001 and Jan 2002. Oh well, I'll give one a shot. Opened one of the HP packages (Jan 2002) and put it in the printer. It WORKS!

How good is that?

Laser colour printer better than an inkjet?
I had a laser jet printer for many years and got sick of it as it was costing a fortune in ink even though I was hardly using it.
