Add ink cartridge information to printer fact tags.

Currently when you go into Best Buy and you're shopping the printer aisle, the tags focus strictly on the printer and the features.  I feel like Best Buy should make all printers go to the longer fact tags with the options and in the options area put the compatible standard capacity and/or high capacity ink/toner (if space allows) catridges that are carried in-store that are compatible with the diplayed printer.  


Here's where this is super helpful.  When customers compare printers, one of the things customers care about most is ink cost.  Currently, you have to pull each of the boxes to get the cartridge numbers and run over to the next aisle and get the prices.  It would be so much easier to have the prices listed right there next to the printer price on the side.  This would also be more efficient than trying to scan the QR code and pulling it up thru the app.

I agree. The tags should have the ink cartridge codes on them.


It would work both ways however.  People may come in wanting a printer that can print outstanding glossy photos.  However, those printers are going to have more expensive ink replacement. 


It would help people. But it could also direct people to buy lower quality printers based on the cost of ink.  Then people could be uptight  because the printer does not produce awesome prints. 


I have an Eco Printer with the big ink wells.  Lowest cost for ink on the market.  But your not going to produce good photo prints. on my printer. 


But this is s a good idea and should be done.

This is something that honestly should have been implemented some time ago.  Given that most replacement ink costs more than the initial purchase price of the printer, having this information would be invaluable to customers.  Additionally, I think that cost per page should be included as well, as that is more reflective of the page yield of a specific cartridge or set of cartridges.
