I was shocked and disgusted at how fast the black ran out. No where near the amount of pages it was presumed ,by their estimate, to print. I do not know why I was shocked or surprised as HP has done this over and over to me.
Hi S. J. Eggenberger, Thank you for your feedback, sorry to hear you are unhappy with the Page yield. Historically printer manufacturers used their own methods for estimating page yield. However, this made it difficult to compare different products. Nowadays, the published page yield is based on the Industry Standard for measuring yields (refer to International Standards Organization ISO 24711). The actual yield varies considerably based on the content of the printed pages, the frequency of printing, the ink used in set-up etc. You may find that you will get more pages when printing in Fast draft mode. XL size cartridges offer up to 50% lower cost per page compared with standard size cartridges. Our recommendation would be that you leave your printer powered on in normal usage conditions, only power it down if you will not use it for an extended period of time (ie: longer than one month) For further information check out Learn About Supplies page:http://hp.care/2cSvmJz and http://hp.care/2kFnquy
