I have an HP Photosmart Pro B8850 Printer that we bought so I could print high quality pictures and also on 12x12 cardstock for scrapbooking. We don't use our printer very often (maybe once a month), however the ink cartridges seem to run out really fast (especially since we aren't using it). I was just wondering if anyone else is having this same problem, if there is a setting I need to fix, or if something is wrong with our printer. Any insight will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Same problem here with my PhotoSmart 6380. HP claims up to 100 prints from a single cartridge set; I get more like 5-10 photos or maybe 10-20 B&W docs before it's out. Rediculous.

I have the same problem. It's costing a fortune to run this printer. I consider this as robbery. A complete set of cartridges cost over 300$, and that's ridiculous expensive. I will never again buy any HP product. The information on how many pages you can print is false. So if you are thinking of buying an inkjet color printer stay away from this one.
It's also a very noisy printer shaking like hell while printing. I was never able to make the manual feed work properly either.
Total waste of time and money.
