When the time comes to purchase supplies for your HP Deskjet F4100 All-in-One Printer, you’ll probably find yourself making the choice between a cartridge that has been designed and approved by the manufacturer and an alternative that has been produced by a third party. If you’re only looking at the purchase price of the product, then the third-party option can look very attractive. However, the purchase price is just one small part of the various factors that determine the cost per page printed with your HP Deskjet F4100 All-in-One Printer.
Other things to consider when purchasing printer supplies
As well as the cost of the cartridge, you should also think about the yield rate of the ink and the quality of the printouts that it will produce, as this can vary significantly between different ink supplies. HP offer XL ink cartridges that offer better value and allow you to keep printing for longer. They'll also be more than happy to take back and recycle your used ink cartridges once you have finished using them.
Getting the best performance from your HP Deskjet F4100 All-in-One Printer
Your HP Deskjet F4100 All-in-One Printer can print most quickly when it is set to draft mode. Unfortunately, many third-party inks produce very poor results when the setting is used, meaning that you’ll have to select a slower and more ink intensive option in order to produce acceptable quality printouts. This will not only mean that every document you print will takes longer but will also increase the cost of each one. This means that in some cases the cost per page printed will be lower with genuine ink, especially if you choose the XL version of the cartridge. Choose genuine HP inks for the best results at the lowest cost in the long run.
*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.
