question

How many 4x6 photos can you print in a set of new ink cartridge?
Asked by: Richie A.
I printed nearly a hundred 4x6 in best quality settings/paper and still had 20-40% ink left in the cartridges that came with the printer. Not sure if that's the regular usage or starter cartridges. What I did get at the end of the was three dozen happy kids for the equivalent of $1 per person and still have a working printer with the option of buying cheap third party ink. Beat that!
