If you're shopping for new ink and supplies for your HP Designjet T1120 large-format printer then you'll be faced with the same choice as many printer owners. Do you choose third-party supplies that may appear to be cheaper or do you stick to the genuine HP inks that you were using when you first purchased the printer?
Before you make a decision between the two, it's worth taking a second to consider the advantages that you'll be able to enjoy when you choose genuine HP inks. These can include better print quality, higher yield and a number of environmental benefits. You'll also be able to avoid the risk of damage to your printer and printouts that can occur when you use certain unapproved cartridges from third-parties. These can cause breakdowns that are expensive and time-consuming to fix and often won't be covered by any warranty or service agreement that you have in place.
Getting the best performance from your HP Designjet T1120
If, like many owners of the HP Designjet T1120, you use the printer to showcase your design work then it's critical that you get the best possible quality every time that you print. You're much more likely to achieve this when you use genuine, high-quality inks from the manufacturer that have been specifically designed for the model of printer that you're using. You'll also receive a higher yield, meaning that you'll be able to print more pages before you have to order another cartridge. This has significant knock-on environmental benefits as it reduces the number of cartridges that have to be manufactured and shipped over the lifetime of your printer.
When you consider all of these advantages together, it's clear that there are multiple advantages to genuine ink that make it worth considering more factors than the retail price when you're shopping for supplies for your HP Designjet T1120.
