Bottom line: Manufacturer's "tested claims" of yield (and cost) per cartridge may be (and often are) WILDLY out of touch with reality. Anyone considering a new printer needs to read this info, and probably anyone else that may not be considering a new printer, but wondering why they keep having to buy new and expensive ink cartridges.

Anyone remember the old ad campaign, "We'll give you the razor and sell you the blades"? Just substitute "cartridges" for "blades", and you'll understand at least part of the story.
