Every time that you purchase supplies for your HP Deskjet D1320 Inkjet Printer you'll have to make the choice between genuine ink supplies that have been approved by the printer's manufacturer and a third-party alternative.
The third-party option can sometimes be available at a lower price than the genuine ink, which can make it a tempting option. On the other hand, there are far more factors than just the price that you should take into consideration when you're choosing between ink cartridges for your HP Deskjet D1320 Inkjet Printer.
For instance, you'll want to know about the yield rate that your chosen cartridge is capable of giving you, the quality of the printout that it will produce and the environmental track record of the ink cartridge's manufacturer. You'll also want to make sure that there is no risk of the ink supply causing damage to your printer, as certain third-party cartridges have been known to in the past. This is particularly important as this type of damage will rarely be covered under any service agreement or warranty plan that you may already have in place for your printer.
Obtaining the highest performance from your HP Deskjet D1320 Inkjet Printer
According to HP, your HP Deskjet D1320 Inkjet Printer should be capable of giving you about 12 pages per minute in both black and white and colour. These numbers only apply when you're running the printer in draft mode and, in some cases, you'll find that third-party inks offer very poor print quality using this setting. This is a worry that you'll be able to avoid if you stick to HP genuine ink. Doing so will also allow you to take advantage of HP's strong environmental record. When taken together, these points make HP inks look like the most cost-effective and environmentally sustainable choice for your HP Deskjet D1320 Inkjet Printer.
*Page yields are declared by the manufacturer in accordance with ISO/IEC standards or occasionally estimated based on 5% per page coverage. Yields will vary greatly depending on image, area coverage, print mode and environmental conditions.
