noise and ink

About 30s after using it the printer (most printers probably) starts a noisy whirring process lasting another 30s, perhaps some cleaning operation. Apart from being rather irritating is it using up a lot of (expensive) ink in the process? I get the impression that the amount of ink I use is more a function of the number of times the printer is used than the amount of paper passing through it.

Re: noise and ink

printer model is MG7150 but I imagine it is not the only one that makes a lot of noise...

@Chris,

When I hear people make these types of statements or comparisons, I often think the following;

 

They are a candidate of a laser printer (instead of inkjet)

 

and

 

It might be less expensive for you to take pictures to a printing service instead of owning an inkjet for occassional or infrequent use.  

 

Consider laser.

Re: noise and ink

Thank you for replying. I suspect however that 'whirring and clicking' are a feature of a lot of printers including those in the US!

Re: noise and ink

The printer whirrs and clicks after every printing session whether it is pictures that are being printed or not. What it thinks it is doing I cannot imagine.
