I know that a fixed head inkjet printer

  • Is more precise
  • Doesn't require calibration
  • Replaced only when faulty

While a disposable head inkjet printer

  • Has a cheaper replacement cost

But I don't know if the price or likelihood of problems happening justify to buy one model or the other. Comparing, for example, a disposable head HP Deskjet 3000 ($60) with a fixed head Epson WorkForce 30 ($70), which one will probably be cheaper when it comes to resupplying and maintaining?

I know those printers differ in many more aspects (thermal vs piezo, 20 ppm vs 38 ppm, etc). But in this question I would like to focus in the head type.
