When you're purchasing ink and supplies for your HP Deskjet D2360, you'll find yourself given the choice between genuine inks that have been approved by HP and third-party alternatives. At times, it can be tempting to select the third-party option, especially if the initial cost of purchase appears to be significantly lower. However, it's worth taking a moment to consider the advantages that you'll gain by selecting a genuine ink over a third-party alternative. These include better quality prints, particularly at lower quality settings, higher yields from every cartridge that you buy and a much stronger track record for environmental performance. Genuine inks also avoid the issue of some third-party inks causing damage to your printer. This is particularly important to take into consideration as this type of damage is rarely covered by any warranty or service plan that you may have in place for your HP Deskjet D2360.
Getting the best performance from your HP Deskjet D2360
The HP Deskjet D2360 is capable of printing around 20 pages per minute in black and white and 14 pages per minute in colour. These numbers apply to the printer's draft mode. Some third-party inks will produce very poor quality printouts in this setting, meaning that you'll have to switch to a slower setting that uses more ink in order to produce acceptable printouts. This could significantly increase the cost of every page that you print and mean that you'd actually save money if you choose genuine inks.
Doing your bit for the environment
You'll also be helping to protect the environment when you select genuine inks for your HP Deskjet D2360. This is because the higher yield rate of these cartridges reduces the total amount of ink supply that has to be produced over the lifetime of your printer. Taken into account with the other advantages of genuine ink, this means that it could be the obvious choice when you're next looking for printer supplies.
*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.
