Thanks! Rep+ this is good to know for our school...
|We ran printers until they said it was time to change the cartridge--and found that some left more than 40 percent of their ink unused.|
|You've probably had this experience: Your printer tells you it's time to change the cartridge, but you dismiss the message and keep printing. Days or weeks later, you're still using the same cartridge and thinking to yourself that rumors of its death were greatly exaggerated....|
We tested using multifunction printers from four major manufacturers: Canon, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, and Kodak. (For the top-rated models, see our chart of top-rated multifunction printers.) PC World Test Center results show that models from Canon, Epson, and Kodak reported ink cartridges as being empty when in some cases the tanks had 40 percent of their black ink remaining....

Also for epson printers there is this neat program to trick the printer in thinking its still got ink so it keeps printing from that ink left over like said in the article.

Kodak printers however they cost 23 dollars for both color and black combo pack and last a bit longer than other. Its only 10 bucks for the black if you just run out of only black.
