i like the idea of 2 cartridges, your not always chasing an empty cartridge
also the print head is on the HP cartridge, everytime you change the cartridge your changing the printhead
1. Problem with only 2 cartridges (black and a tri-color) Is that when you run out of one color, you have to buy a new cartridge (average color cart. is about say $20-$25 for HP, and don't bring me how you get them for free...
2. I also like the idea of changing the printhead everytime you change the cartridge, but, oh well. The R300 does have a cleaning tool which could come in handy at some point I suppose.
3. As far as always hunting down a cartridge, with the ink levels that come up ever time you print (almost standard nowadays) you just buy a new cartridge when it shows you as running low, that's what I'll be doing, and the cartridges are pretty cheap, and I'll just be typing it into Amazon, hit the order button, it's on the way to my house, and it'll be at my house before my ink runs out.
