Those of us that use HP VIVERA inks...

Just a heads up.

I went to Office Max today to pick up some printer ink and other office supplies and while shopping in the ink isle I saw a 6 pack of the VIVERA inks in a "Special" package that includes 150 pieces of photo paper for $35.97!



Well, right next to the ink model number "02" there is an asterisk.

After searching the package for what this "*" means, I find a cryptic message that reads something like "these ink cartridges are custom designed for sale in the VIVERA ink and photo paper combopak."

What the crap does that mean?!

I go up to the service desk and actually find a knowledgeable person who knows about the ink they sell.

I asked him if the statement after the "*" is code for "these ink cartridges are half full". He chuckled and said "you're pretty sharp... that's all I can say."

So, don't bother buying the combopak of VIVERA ink and Photo paper, unless it's all your budget will allow.

What a gimmick!

I guess I'm really bored and looking forward to this darn snow melting! :)

I'm posting to myself now.

yes, but I've opened it three times to see what someone else had to say.
So you have probably been read 2000 times. Very good.
