It's true that our choice of ink can say a lot about us. There will always be the more expensive varieties but it does not always necessarily mean that it's the best. It's more of a status symbol. The cheap ones, need I say more? It's never going to work. They dry out easily and sometimes their parts are also not working well. I guess it's always good to do your own research on what are the best and it has nothing to do with the price, believe me.
