Is it worth it to try and refill Canon ink cartridges?

Asked by kevbo (25624points) August 15th, 2008

I have an MP830 that uses the 5 ink setup—black (text), black (graphic), cyan, magenta, yellow. A five pack (one of each) is $60 at Costco. I’ve never refilled ink cartridges before, although I’ve heard it can be messy. Also the newer Canon cartridges have some kind of chip or sensor on them, which may or may not prevent a refill from working. I don’t know. Any suggestions?

Peggylou does it all the time. I always get super messy. I go on amazon (through a link on fluther, of course) and buy cheap generics.
