    In the past I have run out of ink in the middle of an important project. Question: is there a printer out there which has a low ink level indicator so that I can be pre-warned BEFORE the ink runs out?

    I think some of the newer lezmarks have a low ink level indicator but not 100% sure.

    Would be cheaper to keep an extra cartridge for the current printer on hand rather than buying a new printer.

    The drivers that come with Epson printers display the remaining level of black and color ink. In fact, the printer won't allow you to change cartridges until it reaches a certain level. I agree with brainF, seems like a lot of money to just to get an ink level indicator. Maybe you should check the web site for your printer, you may get lucky and there are new drivers with what you want. Doesn't hurt to give it a shot.
