I'm sorry. I meant which of those printers are available on the market
Expert:  hongkongpom replied 3 years ago.

Hi there,

Ok I checked the normal retailers (Argos & Currys) and they don't have these models available anymore on the market.

If you're looking for a high street store then I wouldn't know their current stock of legacy products.

If you have these inks to sell, then I would recommend that you put them online to sell rather than buying a new printer that can take them. You may find that the inks themselves won't be available after a while.

You won't be able to sell these ink cartridges to people that have bought current models, but you can sell them to people that have already bought these legacy models.

I hope that this helps you.

Best regards,
