I’ve got a great one for ya- get the HP L7680. You can get a recertified one w/ 1 year warranty from newegg.com for $ 100. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16828115089
As far a refilling, there is a much better solution out there. Refilling cartridges is messy, you have to do it often, and the cartridges become clogged. Do what I do and use a continuous ink system. Continuous ink systems hold a LOT of ink, and you only have to refill the tanks when they get empty not the cartridges. Its perfect for me because I use color a lot. The L7680 is perfect for the continuous ink system because the printheads are separate from the cartridges.
You can get the ink systems on ebay or around the web.
This is the one I have and it works fairly well: http://cgi.ebay.com/Bulk-Ink-CIS-for-HP-88-L7555-L7750-L7550-L7650-K5400_W0QQitemZ360152174183QQihZ023QQcategoryZ51292QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
although there are some others out there. You may want one that you can get the air out of the lines a bit easier than mine (air in the lines are really bad for the printheads). I’m thinking about buying this: http://cgi.ebay.com/CISS-CIS-for-HP-88-L7590-L7650-L7480-L7500-L7600-L7700_W0QQitemZ270390488017QQcmdZViewItemQQptZBI_Toner?hash=item3ef4876bd1&_trksid=p3911.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50
If you have any questions let me know. I’ve been recommending both the printer and ink system to everyone I know because I love being able to print in color without worrying about ink costs at all.
