I got a new printer today to print a block poster 25 full color pages only got 13 full color 300 dpi pages the I got a msg that said the color cartridge was low only 13 pages really.  I blew through 2 cartridges trying to print this block poster if I would have not close the program out when it asked me to switch the color cartridge.  Cartridge showed it was only had 63% color left and it started printing everything in pink wow 63% has cartridge is empty that is still a lot left sucks.  I am going to switch to a XL version of the color cartridge and try print this thing one last time if this one does not last long enough to print these 25 full color pages this print is junk.  I found a cheaper xl cartridge on Amazon do you think it is a good deal??


I would like to be able to get 75 to 100 full color pages from the xl version but I really think I only get 45 full color.

Inkjet printers are big holes into which you pour ink until you are bankrupt.  If you haven't learned sooner, you will later.

Learned this the hard way when I was printing a lot of documents the where blue.  I got a Canon with seprate color ink tanks instead of having to get a new cartrage every time 1 color ran out.

If the Picture was of high Quality , get a Printing Company to Print it out - cheaper than Cartridges.
