Each time that you have to purchase ink and supplies for your HP Deskjet F300 All-in-One Printer, you'll find yourself making the choice between genuine cartridges from HP and third-party alternatives. In some lights, the third-party inks can look like the most tempting option, particularly if the initial purchase price is significantly lower than an HP original ink. However, the purchase price is far from the only thing that can impact how much it actually costs to print a document and you should make sure that you take all of these factors into account before you make a decision on what to purchase.
Things to think about when buying supplies for your HP Deskjet F300 All-in-One Printer
Choosing a genuine ink that has been manufactured by HP specifically for your printer means that you will achieve high yield rates from each cartridge and be able to print for longer before purchasing a replacement. You can be confident of achieving the best possible print quality on whatever setting you choose to use.
Getting the best performance from your HP Deskjet F300 All-in-One Printer
According to the manufacturer's official figures, the HP Deskjet F300 All-in-One Printer can print around 20 pages per minute in mono mode and 14 pages per minute in colour. These numbers apply to the printer's draft setting, a mode in which some third-party inks struggle to produce acceptable quality printouts. This will often force you to choose a higher quality print setting, meaning that you'll use more ink on each document that you print. This can mount up over time and mean that the cost per page printed with a cheaper looking third-party cartridge is actually higher than with original inks.
*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.
