When you need new inks and supplies for your HP Deskjet D2400 Inkjet Printer you'll find yourself making the choice between genuine supplies that have been built and approved by the manufacturer of the printer and a third-party alternative. While third-party options can appear tempting if the initial price of purchase is lower, there are a number of other factors that you should consider before you make a decision. This includes the damage that some unapproved third-party products have been known to do to HP printers and a number of other considerations such as the yield rate, print quality and the environmental track record of the manufacturer.
Getting the best performance from your HP Deskjet D2400 Inkjet Printer
According to HP, the HP Deskjet D2400 Inkjet Printer series is capable of printing around 20 pages per minute in black and white and 14 pages per minute in colour. These statistics refer to the printer's draft mode. In some cases, third-party supplies will produce very poor printouts when the printer is using this setting. This means that you'll be forced to print in a higher quality setting, which means that every document you print using your third-party supplies will take longer and cost more. This can mean you'll end up paying less for every page you print with genuine ink than third-party supplies.
The higher yield rate of genuine inks also helps to contribute towards this lower cost per page. Genuine inks are able to print more pages before requiring replacement than third-party options. This helps to support the environment, as it reduces the number of cartridges that will have to be manufactured over the lifetime of your printer. Taken together, all of these benefits mean that genuine ink for your HP Deskjet D2400 Inkjet Printer could be the obvious choice.
*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.
