This C13S051099 epson Photoconductor Unit is quoted as doing up to 20000 pages before needing to be replaced.
The page yield is calculated by manufacturers using ISO/IEC 24711 standards, where they print set documents of 5% page coverage until the cartridge is empty. The standard means you can compare yields between cartridges and manufacturers.
The drum cartridge lies at the heart of the laser printing system so high quality and durability are a must! epson drum cartridges are manufactured to high specifications with tight tolerances to ensure optimum mechanical and quality performance.
|Page Yield||20000 pages|
0.49p per page
This value is calculated from manufacturer's estimates of how many pages a cartridge will print, and should only be used to compare cartridge running costs.
Page yields are estimated using the ISO standard of 5% coverage on a plain A4 page, which is roughly the length of a short letter.
Last ordered October 2014 — just reordered August 2015. Ten months! Very disappointing for a Epson product. In the past they have lasted three years+.
Better luck with this one I hope!
I'm sorry you're disappointed with the Epson photoconductor.
Inks, toners and photoconductors are designed to last a certain amount of pages rather than a period of time. The estimated amount of pages this photoconductor can produce is up to 20,000.
This is based on you printing at 5% coverage on every A4 page, which is basically a few sentences. So if you print at 10% coverage, the amount of pages it could process would reduce to approximately 10,000, 15% would be 6,666 etc.
So if you've used more coverage or done a lot more printing with this photoconductor it will have expired quicker.
The photoconductor (or drum unit) is a roller which prints the toner into your design on the page. As it's used the roller wears down and eventually the is causes the print to become poor so it's important to replace it when the printer tells you it is low or expired.Answered by Bethan Owen (staff member) - August 07, 2015 15:30
