As far as I can tell, Consumer Reports simply reported manufacturers' claims but did not check ink usage for themselves. They really screwed up on that one. The manufacturers test with a "standard" page, which they print repeatedly until the printer says the ink is used up. However, in your hands, most of the ink is likely to be used up just sitting there performing self-maintenance. I think you will find that the specs. blatantly and grossly underestimate ink usage. Check around. I think you will be hard-pressed to find someone who thinks ink consumption is acceptable.
