When you purchase ink for your HP Deskjet F380 Inkjet Printer, you'll often find yourself making the choice between genuine inks that have been manufactured by HP and third-party alternatives. The third-party option can sometimes look like a compelling choice, particularly when the initial cost of purchasing the ink is cheaper than if you were to choose the manufacturer's original. However, the purchase price is just one of the things that determines how much it costs to print a page using your HP Deskjet F380 Inkjet Printer. Be sure to take all of the factors into account before you come to a decision.

As well as price, there are a number of other factors that you should make sure you consider when you're purchasing supplies for your HP Deskjet F380 Inkjet Printer. These include the environmental reputation of the company that manufactured the ink, the yield rate the cartridge offers. The HP No.21 Black InkJet Print Cartridges can print up to 190 pages and the No.22 Tri-Colour Inkjet Print cartridges can produce up to 165 Pages.
Getting the best performance from your HP Deskjet F380 Inkjet Printer
According to the manufacturer, your HP Deskjet F380 Inkjet Printer is capable of printing 20 pages per minute in black and white and 14 pages per minute in colour. These are the levels that the printer will be able to reach when it is set to draft mode and, in many cases, you'll find that third-party inks offer very poor print quality when used in this setting. This may mean that you have to resort to a higher quality setting simply to produce legible text. If this is the case, you may well find that genuine inks offer a lower cost per page printed and faster performance.
*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.
