Every time that you have to purchase ink and supplies for your HP Deskwriter 560c Inkjet Printer you'll find that you're presented with the choice between genuine, manufacturer approved cartridges and third-party alternatives. If you're only looking at the purchase price, then the third-party supplies can look like an attractive choice. However, the price of buying the ink is just one of many factors that go into determining how much it costs to print a page with your HP Deskwriter 560c Inkjet Printer and it's important that you consider them all before coming to a decision.
Things to take into account before purchasing ink
By choosing a genuine HP ink, you can be confident that you'll get the best quality printouts in whatever mode you choose to use. By using the HP No.26 Black Ink Cartridges you'll also achieve high yield rates. This means that you'll be able to printer up to 800 pages before the cartridge need replacing. When the time comes, you'll be able to take advantage of HP's recycling scheme to help you dispose of the cartridge in an environmentally sound fashion.
Getting the best performance from your HP Deskwriter 560c Inkjet Printer
Like most printers, the HP Deskwriter 560c Inkjet Printer will perform most quickly when it is set to draft mode. Unfortunately, many third-party inks and supplies give such poor performance when this setting is used that your documents could be illegible. This means that you'll have to switch to a higher quality setting in order to use the third-party supplies, meaning that every document that you print will take longer and use more ink. In some cases, this can push the cost per page printed from a third-party cartridge with a cheaper purchase price to be more than the genuine ink. This shows why it's essential that you consider more than the purchase price when you're buying inks and supplies.
