A protest movement is needed, to force legislators and consumer protection agencies to put a halt to the abuse of printer consumers by engineering planned obsolescence into inkjet printers. They do this with ink waste pads and purge counters. I have yet to see any statement in any advertisement that "This printer is only good for 1,200 purge cycles and then you have to throw it away". Most of us know this is happening but we never learn it up front before we buy. The practice should be illegal. There is no reason the manufacturer can't make all these printers with a easily removable waste ink pad that can be cleaned or replaced at the owner's option, and make the purge counter resetable by the user. The ONLY reason they don't do it is greed. Any thoughts on this?
