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?
