Question Side-brand printer ink - pros and cons?

Are there are any concerns with using side-brand ink for my printer? I'm thinking about getting some ink from Atlantic Inkjet.com since it's $13.99/$18.99 and the HP ink is like $70 for the color and black cartridges after tax, but are there any concerns with using side-brand ink? Could it damage the print heads or anything? Print quality isn't a MAJOR concern - I just print projects for school and use primarily black ink anyway but if it's going to cause any problems with my printer, I don't want to use it... Opinions?

The only ink that will damage print heads is fake ink. There are alot of fake online ink sites(Article) So it might not be a good idea to buy ink online.


Also if you do use side-brand ink it will void your warranty (read the article)

My warranty is long gone. I bought my printer a little over three years ago.
