The total cost of ownership is indicated by the red line, based on pages printed per month for years.

The total cost of ownership is based on the purchase cost of the hardware plus the ongoing costs of ink/toner. Other costs may influence the total cost of ownership and could lead to further savings, such as additional consumables used by laser printers and power consumption. The average selling price of the printers and consumables were obtained from the IDC EMEA Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker (Data Q2 2016 – Q1 2017) and IDC EMEA Consumables Tracker (Data H1 2016, H2 2016).

1 Quoted yields are extrapolated based on Epson original methodology from the print simulation of Test patterns provided in ISO/IEC 19752. Quote yields are NOT based on ISO/IEC 24711. Quote yields may vary depending on the images you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature. During the initial printer setup, a certain amount of ink is used to fill the print head’s nozzles, therefore the yield of the initial bundled set can be lower.
