:: What is Page Yield?
Page yield is the number of pages that you can print with a printer cartridge. It is also known as ink / toner cartridge yield. Page yield is one of the factors you should consider when purchasing a printer cartridge. Some printer cartridge manufacturers use general terms such as standard yield or high yield to describe the cartridges, but each printer cartridge model should have a page yield (the number of pages it can print under standard conditions). It gives the consumers an estimate of the cost per page (CPP) for that cartridge. Other than page yield, you should also consider factors such as the price, print quality, reliability, warranty, etc. when purchasing a printer cartridge.

To begin it is fair to say that the Canon Pixma MP250 printer is a high quality but compact all in one printer with photo printing options. With a sophisticated compact look you’ll be able to copy, scan and of course print documents. One of the great features of this printer is the lab quality photo printing results with borderless prints of different sizes but the largest option is 8.5" x 11".
Because this printer’s main mission is to print photos you have photo correction tools and availability to connect to software tools such as the new Auto Photo Fix 11 that’s inside the Easy – PhotoPrint EX. Some of the things you’ll be able to do are simple touchups and minor color or red eye alterations. Canon has included the ChromaLife100+ system allowing your printed photos to last up to 300 years if you use original Canon ink cartridges and appropriate photo paper as well as properly store them in a quality photo album. Talk about long lasting results!
We certainly like the fact that this printer its energy star compliance meaning it is kinder to the environment and who doesn’t like to be green even when printing. And after the printer has fulfilled its purpose the Pixma MP250 has the RoHS certification that it doesn’t have any harmful material that could cause damage to the environment when disposed of.

We have good news and not so good news when it comes to ink cartridges for this printer. The not so good news is that because there are only two cartridges to replace a black ink cartridge and a tri-color cartridge you end up wasting some ink because they don’t finish up exactly the same and you can’t replace the exact color that you are missing. For the regular black ink cartridge you’ll be able to print 220 pages and for color 244 pages both around twenty dollars. Luckily they also offer XL or High Yield cartridges meaning they print more than regular cartridges but to be fair the exact amount of pages are 401 for black ink and 349 for color ink.
There are remanufactured cartridge options for this printer. You should know that this cartridges where previously original and where recycled and refurbished to work similar as the original ones. The advantages of using them are the you pay less for them and you are also helping the environment by reusing the cartridge.
