View Full Version : HP Ink cartridges

29th February 2008, 10:36 PM

I read on the HP website (US) that there are new print cartridges with Vivera (piment) inks available for my trusty old DeskJet 1220C. It says they are for "upgrading" your old printer.
This is great because the pigment inks are a lot better longevity wise than then dye inks. Unfortunately it seems these Vivera cartridges (No 45 and 78) are neither available in the UK nor Europe.

Does anybody know anything about this?

I'd be quite happy to keep using my printer as the quality is generally o.k. and I do not print that often, but the prints just fade out too quickly!

I remember this has happened in the past with paper stocks where they were simply available in the US for a month or more, certainly widely available, before over here in the UK. Perhaps the same is happening here?
