I'd say it's your choice, but would recommend staying with the OEM cartridges. You're spending more now, but saving money down the road.

Compatible cartridges sell well because of the significant difference in cost. There's a reason for that: the quality simply is not as good. I spend a large amount of time cleaning printers in which the compatible carrtidge has sprung a leak, depositing toner everywhere inside the printer. You may be one of the lucky ones who never has it happen to you, but most of my customers have had to deal with the mess at least once. And, as robo_dev points out, they very often do not provide the number of pages the OEM cartridge will provide.

In short, pay now or pay later...
