  • It has to match up. I think *think* some office supply stores sell their own knock off of the appropriate size for a few bucks less, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Look for a model that you can have the cartridge refilled instead of having to replace it entirely. Generally, the more you spend on a printer the less you will spend on ink in the long run.

  • It does need to match up and I agree with wildsun, I think there are store brands.

  • The numbers have to match up, but you can buy off brand and you can get the cartridges refilled.

  • They sell compatibles (non-name brand). Better option than refillable cartridges, which always leak. I work for an imaging supply company. :)
