Class Action Lawsuit against Samsung

The law firm of Kabateck Brown Kellner, LLP filed a class action lawsuit against Samsung for rigging its printers and misleading consumers in its quest to sell as many costly and profitable toner cartridges.

According to the Marketwire article - "Samsung programs its printers to shut down and display a "toner empty" message when there is in fact a significant amount of toner still remaining in the toner cartridge. Users must install a new Samsung toner cartridge to resume using their printers, even though there is plenty of toner left in their old cartridge. Users cannot pursue the relatively cheaper options of refilling their old cartridges or using another company's cartridges -- Samsung employs "smart chip" technology to force consumers to use their cartridges.

Also there is an interesting link which gives the comparison of inkjet cartridge ink to other valuable liquids.

Whoever posts the second most expensive liquid by the end of September will win fifty bucks or a new cartridge.
