Refillable cartridge seems like an excellent idea to slash printing costs, but it depends on how much you print. Remember, when you buy your refill ink in bulk, they have to be used up within 6 months. If you only print 1 page a month, normal cartridges is definately a cheaper option for you. If you go through at least 3 sets of cartridges every 6 month, that's when you can enjoy the cost savings of refillable cartridges.

Windows may be starting files that are on their way to the printer in their "raw" form. That's sometimes the default Windows setting. But raw files must be converted from their raw format that the application understood to the printer format. If you instead tell Windows to send documents as EMF -- Enhanced Metafile Format -- files, then Windows doesn't have to work at the conversion. The printer is then responsible for understanding the EMF. That can slow the printer but speed your PC. To send documents as EMF, first choose Start, Settings, Printers. Next, right-click the printer you're using. Choose Properties, Details, Spool Settings. In the Spool Data Format list, choose EMF. Easy enough.
