The HP Photosmart Premium C309g uses thermal inkjet technology to deliver superb quality colour prints up to 9600 x 2400 dpi. The mono prints are impressive too, and speeds can hit as much as 33 ppm when running at full capacity. It is a multifunction, all-in-one printer that will also meet your scanning and copying needs, so its all-round ability is perfect for a home or small business environment. As long as it is being run at full capacity.
To get the very best out of your C309g's inkjet technology, you will want to use the consumables that were designed for optimal use with that hardware. HP manufactures the full range of ink cartridges that will ensure you can hit all the right numbers with your device; those impressive resolutions and print speeds push thermal inkjet technology to its limit. If you want the full value from your HP Photosmart Premium C309g, you'll need genuine HP consumables to fuel it. With these HP cartridges, you can expect a page yield of around 250 with the black, and 300 with the colour ink cartridges. With the XL versions, these numbers can be more than double.
If you buy third-party consumables that aren't compatible with the C309g, there's only one thing you can be sure of: the price will match the quality. If it's cheaper than the genuine article, then it's inferior, and using inferior consumables could cost you more in the long term. Lower printed page output, reduced print quality, and even damage to your hardware are all risks associated with third-party consumables. If any of this happens to you, you will regret falling for the tempting upfront prices of those products.
By purchasing a HP Photosmart Premium C309g printer, you opted for versatility, reliability and quality of performance. And you will get those things, as long as you stick to genuine HP consumables when filling the ink supply. Don't ignore the word 'inferior' - you may regret it if you do!
