    It's price locked to $135, it can't be sold for less and shouldn't be for more.

    SourceGraphics in Anaheim CA lists them for $115.46, but I haven't tried ordering from them and I don't think they will ship them. I've gotten some from ITSupplies.com, $135 with free shipping.
     
  4. That's what I've heard....I just always assume there is someone somewhere getting a better deal... and there usually is...
     
  5. just checked them out, they only have 4 of the 6 colors in stock, no optimizer. cost was $115 each, shipping was $38 for 4 of them.

    They better hope HP doesnt catch wind or they will lose the ability to sell HP products.

    Unless someone shows me an actual invoice, I call BS on anyone paying less than $135 (Unless your a franchise), I will pay $20 for every invoice you provide me that shows you get them under $135 for HP Branded OEM Latex Ink (300/500 series)

    Can I show you an invoice with the vendors name removed, so you don't report them to HP? :D

    So.. buy then one at a time from the above link for $115, get $20 from you... And that makes them only $95 each

    List on inks @ $140 with MRP @ $135. I bet Source Graphics will have their pricing adjusted by end of the week - that or risk losing their HP franchise. From an HP reseller's point of view, there is not one customer out there worth that risk.

    This is very much not true... Ink cost for a few of our projects made a major difference in profit.
     
  15. ink cost really doesn't matter much, correct, but if i can get a set of them for $111.28 each instead of $135 each like i just did, i will go that route all day long..

    Or you can pay $375 for the 3L. At my last shop, which had a 360, we paid $125 from a major HP vendor in the in the Southern states. My current shop just bought a 570 through the same vendor, so it's somebody that might be under tight HP scrutiny.
