Thanks for advice.  The DX 6000 is the only one which gives ink usage
- 425 sheets for black ink - the other models (and makes) are all
silent as far as I can ferret out.  No info available about expiry
date.  Should one go for the only machine for which there are ink
usage data published ?  And is their new fancy ink available in
cheaper cartridges ?
