I'm thinking about buying this printer right here:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Canon-PIXMA-Wireless-All-In-One-Inkjet-Printer-MG2929/391511496894?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D37798%26meid%3D91ba427274fe4ceca2acce5c0b702ff6%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D182208198759

 

What model of ink cartridge would I need?


My current build:

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P
Processor: AMD FX-8350
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB DDR3)
Video Card: Geforce GTX 1070ti

OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate

The cartridge model numbers are listed here:

I don't know where you are located, but it seems a set of cartridges cost about the price of the new printer, so hard to see the value of the s/h one then buying cartridges, rather than starting with the brand new printer.

Certainly you can economize with refilled cartridges.

If I read the specs posted above correctly, this printer has a combined colour tank - all three colours in one tank. This means that if you run out of one colour you have to replace the complete tank unless you plan on re-filling yourself. And this is (1) a fiddly process, and, (2) a messy one !

 

FWIW I would always advise buying a printer with separate tanks for each colour.
