HP 73 twin pack ink cartridges for the Z3200 discontinued?
« on: December 08, 2012, 11:08:41 AM »

I was talking with someone yesterday who said that the HP 73 series ink cartridge twin packs were discontinued or soon to be discontinued. Can anyone verify this?

TIA

Yeah they are.  I tried to order a batch yesterday and was told they were discontinued.  Effectively my ink costs just went up 30%.

Edit:  73 is chromatic red right?  It's not just that color it's all 70 (z-series) twin packs.

^I dunno. My understanding is that the Z3200 uses the 73 series where the z3100 uses the 70 series. But I donít own a Z3200. Iím am considering it but news such as this this makes me hesitant.

Can anyone clarify the ink cartridges used by the z3200?

As an owner of a z3100 and a z3200 I can verify that the two printers use the exact same ink carts with the exception of red:  HP70  (HP73 for the chromatic red on a z3200).

Parts List.

HP z3200 ink price per mL: $.50 (used to be $.38 when twin packs were available)
Canon 8400 price per mL (700 ml size): $.42

That would suck for me.  But I show them in stock lots of places as of now, so who knows.  http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/757924-REG/HP_Hewlett_Packard_CD952A_73_2_pack_130_ml_Chromatic.html
