1 Actual savings and costs will vary considerably based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions. Based on total costs of printing with the WF-C878R and WF-879R printers and highest-capacity replacement ink compared with the costs of printing equivalent ISO pages with the best-selling, similarly featured color laser and color inkjet multifunction printers with speeds of 35 pages per minute or less as of June 2019. Toner and ink costs based on manufacturer’s highest-capacity yields and pricing; printer costs based on MSRP per industry-available data as of September 2019. 
2 Ink pack yields are estimated based on ISO/IEC 24711 test in Default Mode printing continuously. Ink pack yields vary considerably for reasons including printed images, 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 ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal.
