HP Inkjet Cartridge Usage Revealed

1oz of ink for $27.50, wow, what a deal!
The other day, my HP 970Cxi inkjet
printer was telling me to change the cartridge on the printer
with its orange ink low light on the top of the printer. Damn,
I thought... I have to open a new credit card again to pay for
Funnies aside, it is expensive
to replace those inkjet cartridges when the well runs dry. I
had a extra cartridge at the ready for replacement and I thought
I would weigh it on my digital postal meter to see how much ink
I used compared to the new cartridge I had. To my amazement,
I discovered that I used just under 1oz of ink! in fact, the
new cartridge was 4.3oz and the old used one was 3.4oz. Check
out the pics below.
So next time you looking at that
laser printer and wondering about the mileage you'll get you
might want to think again.

You can find refurbished cartridges
for a bit cheaper, but for my money, maybe its time to get a
laser for printing my invoices and checks. This is expensive!
My 2 cents...
