1 Compared with best-selling, monochrome laser printers priced at $499 (USD) or less and 40 ppm or less per industry available data as of April 2018. Calculation based on continuous printing of ISO pages with highest-capacity individual cartridges or ink packs. Actual savings will vary based on print task and use conditions.
2 Replacement ink pack yields are based on the ISO/IEC 24711 standard using the ISO/IEC 19752 pattern in default mode printing continuously. Ink pack yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature, humidity, and frequency of use. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently. Ink is used for printing and printer maintenance. For print quality, part of the ink from the included ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal.
