The cartridges included with the printer are designed for printer setup and not for resale. After some ink is used for priming, the rest is available for printing. Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use, and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "replace cartridge" indicator comes on.
