Mike, I am very well aware of the issue of print costs. What I am doing, in terms of print costs is using the manufacturer's estimates of page capacity based on 5% coverage. It's inaccurate in that 5% is a totally arbitrary figure. But it does provide a basis for comparison, which is the best I can hope for.

I have found that your experience is probably typical - every time I check, the more expensive printers tend to have lower costs than the cheaper ones. And, I did see that the larger tanks tends to be less expensive per page than the smaller one.
