The figures above are all based on manufactures recommended retail prices.

Although the Epson cartridges sound like they are the cheapest, the HP has over twice the capacity. I do not have print yield figures at this stage, but you could assume that the amount of ink placed on a sheet of photo media will be similar, i.e. I don't think any of them will use a significantly less amount.
