I have never had a printer burn through so much ink! I am a low-volume, home user, but I still have to replace the ink cartridges almost weekly! And it is set up so that once it alerts you to a low ink level, it will not permit you to keep printing. I have tried every trick I know, but the system is set up to force frequent ink replacement. It is a decent printer, but a total rip off ink-wise. A huge and expensive disappointment.
