Black only printer for PG545 type cartridges

Am having problems with an existing Canon printer.
This uses PG545 cartridges, which I refill myself.
I need a printer that prints in Black only (for simplicity), and uses these carts.
Would be grateful for any advice as to which (cheap, basic) printer would
be suitable for the job.

If you want a simple reliable cheap printer, get a laser printer.
Random example for £70:

and the toner carts are these:
£16 for 2, which is about 3000 pages.
Unlike ink spraying efforts where a cartridge might do a couple of 100 pages at best, assuming it hasn't blocked, leaked, wasted 80% of the ink on a 'cleaning' cycle or failed in multiple other ways.

Forget about inkjet, they are all mess, expense and waste.
Many thanks for your reply.
I'm getting on a bit now and don't really need such an active machine.
I refill my own carts and only use black print and then only occasionally.
