The printer burns through ink - even on the economy settings. I used three black cartridges before I made it through a reem of paper. It uses a lot of ink when it starts up an tests the heads. I rarely print color and the color catridges still run out quickly. The printer is unreasonably burdensome to own. I regret purchasing it and being dumb enough to replace the ink so many times. It would have almost been less expensive to purchase a new printer each time I need to replace all the colors + black. NEVER AGAIN EPSON!
