    Hi everyone,

    Yes, I know this is not very specific, as I am not stating a particular make
    or model. Can someone point me to a resource that lists the approx. number
    of pics (say 4x6 and 8x10) one could print out before needing to replace the
    cartridges?

    Someplace other than the home pages of Epson and HP, as their reported rates
    of speed are laughable, and I don't think they would be more honest with my
    topic.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    For something like the Epson 1280 we usually get 20-25 8x10's.

    That is a good estimate. I see some variation depending on the type of paper
    used.

    Should also point out this is just for the color cart, the black cart typically
    lasts through 4 - 5 color carts.
