An Endless Sea of Printers

It is no secret that printer manufactures make their money selling ink not printers. For the last several years now consumers have been able to pick-up an inexpensive color ink jet printers for under $40. These printers work fine for day-to-day print needs as long as you aren't looking for super high quality or volume. When it comes time to replace the ink cartridges the cost is often higher than that of just buying a whole new printer with ink cartridges. Basically this means that the landfills might soon be full of printers that have only used one set of cartridges. Does anyone else see anything wrong with this?
