Staples information wrong on Brother MFC-790CW

April 22, 2009

If you order off from Staples.com and own the Brother MFC-790CW, be careful.

We regularly use Staples.com as a reference site for what cartridges go to what printers.  However, they have some miss information on the MFC-790CW.  They list the LC61 standard Brother cartridges, as well as the high capacity LC65 packs.  (link is here)  So, after seeing that, I ordered the LC65 for the customer, which is a better value.  Customer came back in two days later and asked if I could install it cause he couldn’t.  Neither could I, it didn’t fit.

I refunded his payment and then started looking.  I went to Brother-usa.com and decided to look on there.  Sure enough, the MFC-790CW only takes the LC61 cartridges (See Here).

So as a reminder, the LC65’s will NOT work with the Brother MFC-790CW, only the LC61.

Staples changes ink recycling program

January 24, 2009

Walking into my local Staples today, they had a nice big sign by the door.  It simply read, Starting Feburary 1st, 2009 Staples will limit the number of cartridges you can recycle to 10 per month per person.

So instead of 3 per day, now it is 10 per month.  A drastic reduction.  Good news is they still recycle all HP, Dell, Lexmark, and Kodak cartridges.
