    Not All Ink Cartridges Created Equal Getting The Most For Your Money When It Comes To Ink
    Printer ink can cost you 10 times what you pay for the printer itself. But how can you determine those costs before buying a printer?Steve Pociask is with the American Consumer Institute and he’s on a war path about the high price of printer ink. Half of their profits are from ink.Printer ink has been called black gold, the most expensive liquid on earth. Pociask said the price per ounce is higher than Chanel #5 or Dom Perignon Champagne and he blames manufacturers for shorting consumers. He claims the manufacturers don’t fill the cartridges up completely, which means ink runs out more often.

    Many printers are giveaways but the ink cartridges can run you $50 and $60 each. And good luck finding out how much ink you’ll get. There’s no information on the boxes, no information on the printers and no information on the cartridges themselves. In order to see how far the ink would last on several brands, NewsChannel5 ran a test by printing pages until the cartridge ran out of ink. Canon’s cartridge lasted 129 pages, Lexmark lasted longer at 163 pages and the winner was the HP, which lasted 186 pages.

    “Quality Logic” does its own tests and determines cost per printed page. In its tests, the Lexmark x6650 cost 26 cents a page, which is $1170 over three years on average. Compare that to the Kodak ESP-5 which is just $.068 a page or $360 over three years. Kodak says their ink goes further setting up a Web site so you can compare. But you can cut costs on your own by ignoring those low ink warnings.Instead of buying new, try refilling your cartridge. Many stores offer the refill service, like Walgreens and Costco. And typically it cuts the costs by more than half.You can also go to The American Consumer and Consumer Calculator to compare ink costs.

    Lexmark Statement Lexmark is quite transparent on ink yields and we adhere to ISO ink standards. Information on our devices and ink page yields can be found here: Lexmark Further, we announced the industry’s lowest black ink cost earlier this year: Lexmark Pulled directly from that release is this statement – Lexmark’s new 105XL black ink cartridge offers businesses a penny-per-page option for mono printing, which equals bottom-line savings potential for small businesses that typically print black-and-white documents. With a suggested retail selling price of $4.99, businesses can buy high-yield black cartridge replacements that deliver the lowest black printing cost in the industry and long-life ink performance.
