Epson 4800 and 7800 Ink Usage
Nov 4, 2005


I'm seriously contemplating a move up in size to the Eposn 4800 or 7800. However, I am a bit concerned about ink usage. I have read that it can take up to 30 ml of each ink just to charge the system and then, depending on the size of print and color, a new 220 ml cartridge and be used each 30 to 50 prints.

I am presently printing on an Epson 220 using only Epson inks and a Canon 9900 with 3rd party inks for proofs. I'll most likely give up the 2200 when I go to the larger printer.

Any help from someone with any experience with ink useage on these printers would be appreciated.
