I think the video is funny, - and scary. I’m still wondering if it’s all true. Anyways, I went through much the same process. There’s literally and physically hundreds of different cartridges in many stores.
We went for laser printers years ago. I still have an ink on my desk. I was replacing ink cartridges quite often. I found original cartridges at a good price. They looked good and all. I believe they were the real thing.
So, I didn't actually need color - I was mostly printing black and white every now and then. But the color ink cartridges seemed to need replacement quite often. I spent many hours to try and hack the problem, but the printer wouldn't operate (without the color). So now it’s just a convenient scanner, though I’m taking pictures with the mobile more and more. I may have to skip it, the ink printer, it’s like it’s kind of sitting there, laughing at me ...
My mom still has an ink printer. Last time, she went to the library and printed (laser) what she needed in black and white at about 20 cents per page. Well, next time she asks me for printer support, I guess the easy way out is to let her watch those 12 minutes on YouTube.
