1 Based on printing costs with the WF-C8190 and WF-C8690 printers and highest-capacity replacement ink compared with the costs of printing equivalent ISO pages with best-selling, similarly featured A3 color laser printers priced at $2,499 USD or lower with speeds of 30 ppm or lower as of December 2017. Toner and ink costs based on manufacturer’s highest-capacity yields and pricing; printer costs based on average selling price per industry-available data as of December 2017. Actual savings will vary based on usage conditions.

2 Standard paper capacity of 330 sheets; up to 1,830-sheet capacity with three optional 500-sheet paper trays.

3 Not all media types are supported for PCL printing.

4 Based on 200 dpi, letter-size, in black-and-white or color.

5 Replacement cartridge yields are based on ISO/IEC 24711 tests in Default Mode printing continuously. Cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace cartridge” signal.
