Why should you consider buying HP ink cartridges?

HP ink cartridges have been in the market for a long time now and in this time they have set a trend of high quality in as far as their applications, durability and economical nature are concerned. In 2007 Hewlett Packard introduced multiple cartridge package options and the majority of their consumer printers now come with these. Using a HP ink cartridge presents you with many advantages and two of which stand out quite distinctly. First, the quality of printouts is always highly impressive. Secondly, HP printer cartridges are renowned for their longevity. Compared to a good number of alternative brands you are less likely to frequently run out of ink with a HP cartridge model.

In buying HP ink cartridges you really have to consider the nature of your printing requirements. If yours are nominal then you may opt to buy a new cartridge but if you need to churn out large volumes of print work then lower cost per page cartridge packages will do the trick for you. For either situation the bottom line is really all about saving money while producing a high quality print. To further inform your HP ink cartridge purchasing decision you will do well to use the brand manufacturer’s three colour code categories which are as follows:

  1. The blue package for standard cartridges: these are available at low purchase prices.
  2. The green package for value cartridge: the cost per page for these is lower compared to what is offered for standard cartridges. The new XL HP ink cartridges in this category offer cost per page savings as high as 30-45%.
  3. The red package for specialty HP ink cartridges: this is designated for customers who have special print job requirements. These HP ink cartridges are interchangeable so that end users who, for instance, print text-only documents can be able to use standard colour cartridges and XL black cartridges in one printer

For any of the HP products in the market, including the Digital Copier, HP Photosmart, Deskwriter or Inkjet Colourpro, it is quite easy to find the required HP ink and cartridges. Making a search using the aforementioned codes or even the specific product name is the best way to help avoid any HP ink errors. As a printer user you can manipulate the quantity of ink that will be used to print out a document or photo and this is by choosing from the different print modes available in the printer’s software (installed on your PC). Generally, less HP ink is used when you select any of the plain paper draft modes and the resulting print quality is typically lower as compared to when you are using the default plain paper normal mode.

Most HP ink cartridges are applicable for more than one model of printer and the resulting yields for a specific cartridge vary from one printer to the next albeit with quite minimal differences. By and large, HP ink cartridge reference yield information is based on the yield that was achieved with the first printer that made use of that specific cartridge. As such, you may observe that the published yields for your printers’ HP ink cartridges are different from those of the respective reference cartridges. That said and done it is worth appreciating that in addition to yield, your printing costs factor in a couple of other variables like quality, efficiency, productivity and reliability, and only superior quality printing accessories such as those from HP will guarantee you of the optimal results you desire.
