We don’t retest older printers. To account for their age, each year we alter their overall and individual scores. This can affect whether a printer maintains recommended or worth considering status.

Extra ink used is the percentage of extra ink used for maintenance cleaning when printing 30 pages (text, graphics and photos) intermittently over 4 weeks, compared to the same printer printing 30 pages continuously.
