Default HP 4630 Inkjet Guzzling Ink - fix?

Just bought a HP 4630.

I print A4 color pages. My last printer was a brother inkjet that would do 50+ before a cartridge change on decent enough print. unfortunately the paper feed broke.

The HP 4630 guzzles ink to the point where a brand new cartridge printed 11 a4 pages for me on "normal" print. The "draft" print is very poor, but the "normal" print creates a page that's dripping in ink.

I need a middle ground that will look okay but use much less ink, as i cannot afford to run a printer like this

Is there other software I can use that will tell the printer to use less ink?

thanks

This review does state that the HP 4630 does guzzle ink.

For the amount of printing your doing, you should consider getting a laser printer for the best cost on your ink usage
There are some software's out there that make a claim to use less ink, but I do not know if that's true

See if you can return it, you may get stuck with a re-stock fee but in the long run it'll be less than what you'll be spending on ink. Next time your interested in a printer, check out as many reviews on line as you can but it's best to find unbiased reviews from someplace that does not promote the printer they are reviewing
