For those who own the B9180, how do you rate the ink usage? Preliminary reviews seemed to indicate average ink use for this class of printer. User reports in online forums however seem to indicate higher than average ink usage, especially with light grey.
I am wondering if this is true, or if perceptions might be skewed because of folks who are new to fine art papers. With my old i9900, the fine art papers seemed to drink up more ink, but I don't know if this is true of pigment printers.
Any users thinking the usage is high must be including the initial purge. After the first ininitialisation the consumption falls right into place with moderate ink use per size compared to all other A3+ ( size printers.
Yes there is a lot of grey componenet replacement with the light grey. By doing so there is less triples of color making the grey areas neutral. Thus the lG is going to cost less than if it were composite grey printing.
