Consumer Reports Ink Jet Costs

High cost of inkjet device printer ink

  • Article in recent issue of Consumer Reports magazine
  • Cheapest ink averages $13 per ounce, more than twice cost of Dom Perignon Champagne, while most expensive is $95 per ounce
  • “our lab tests show that must of that precious ink never makes it onto the printed page. Instead, it’s used for cleaning print heads and other maintenance chores, typically when the printer is starting up after sitting idle for awhile”
  • “in intermittent use, many models delivered half or less of their ink to the page, and a few managed no more than 20 to 305 (of the published ink cartridge yield)”
