Understanding "Page Yields" and what it means for you.
Last Updated: 11/03/2009

Page yields refers to the total prints a cartridge is supposed to print. Most customers will never receive the total pages a cartridge is supposed to yield. This is because the standard testing page inks only 5% of the entire page.  A typical text only document will cover about 10-25% of the page. You can see printing just a regular text only document, you will need to use 2-3 cartridges just to receive the total page yield that is stated.
