Examples of printers that use ink efficiently include the Canon Pixma MG7520, Brother MFC-J5620DW and Epson Expression Premium XP-820 models. When using high-yield cartridges for these models, the cost of printing black-and-white pages ranges from 0.5 to 5 cents.
The MG7520 model can print up to 4,400 pages on a single black XL cartridge. With a standard cartridge, this model can print up to 1,100 pages of black and 300 pages for color. The MFC-J5620DW model supports super high-yield cartridges that allow it to print up to 1,200 pages for color, making it the most-efficient option among the three listed models. The downside is that its photo quality and printing speed is lower in comparison to MG7520 and XP-820 models.
