Printer inks are essential to anyone who does any computing, be it at the office or at home. While environmentalists do stress the importance of paperless computing in the interests of saving the planet’s resources, there are times when it is absolutely necessary to print out documents. Naturally, you would need printer ink for that.
Environmental consciousness aside, it would not hurt to save on printer ink and learn to use it wisely. Using printer ink cartridges wisely can yield a little savings, and saving a little money on printer ink can go a long way.
How can you make the most out of your printer ink? Here are six tips.
- Use your printer’s draft print mode. Certainly isnt’ the best quality setting in your printer, but if the document is not important and the result is very much readable, go for it. Draft print mode uses less ink.
- Back-to-back printing. This is more for saving paper rather than saving printer ink, but printing back-to-back saves money nonetheless.
- Use smaller font. Again, this is mostly for saving paper than printer ink, but as long as the document is still easy to read, it is fine.
- Do not print images unless you have to. Printing images uses up a lot of printer ink.
- Use all your ink. Even if your printer says you have run out of ink, more likely than not, there is still some left in the cartridge. Go use it all up.
- Buy compatible or remanufactured cartridges. Some people are iffy on ink refills, but if you are willing to try, you can go for that to save money on printer ink.
My husband bought me my Epson CX7400 last year for our anniversary. I use it quite often, however, our old one had completely died.
It is a basic three-in-one, but suits my needs perfectly. Being an Ebay seller and an very active member at paperbackswap, the scanner never rests. The copier is mainly used for Bible verse memory booklets for my Bible classes. I usually wait until the last minute to make the copies I need. I don’t like to take the chance that the church secretary will be too busy to get to them. The printer saves me a trip to the library when I want to print off a college paper, an internet coupon, or a coloring sheet for my kids. The internet is such a wonderful tool, however, you can not use it to its’ full capacity if you do not own a printer.
This particular model is a money saver. There are four different ink cartridges for the Epson CX7400. If you run out of yellow (T069420), you do not have to throw out the rest of the ink. Also, your papers will print solid until the ink is completely empty. This energy efficient machine costs less than $100.
The Epson CX7400 does not have all the bells and whistles of other printers, but as a basic printer you can not beat it!
I recently purchased a Canon Pixma MP-210 inkjet printer to replace an Epson CX-4800. My daughters also have a Canon Pixma MP-210 and they have been extremely pleased with it, so I thought I’d follow suit and purchase one.
My daughters are photographers and have needed to print some of their work for art shows. When I saw the quality of the photographs from their Pixma, I was pleasantly shocked! The colors were bright and vivid, they were sharp and clear. Its ability to produce excellent quality photographs is what I like the best about this printer. I had the opportunity to purchase a newer Canon model but opted to purchase the MP-210 just because of the quality I’ve seen from my daughters’ printer.
I do feel that the ink is a bit more expensive than in other printers, but if it is going to give me the quality I expect, it may be well worth it. I am using it primarily for making regular copies, however, I will use it for photographs as well. It also doesn’t have an ‘enlarge’ feature. I would have liked to have had that feature on a printer.
The printer is a bit, ‘clunky’ in design, not as sleek as I would have liked to see in a printer, but if it does a good job, I can live with it. However, it is FAST and that makes up for its aesthetic flaw. I do think that it is going to fulfill my needs, especially with printing photographs.
On a scale of 1-5, I’d have to rank it as a 4. If it were sleek in design, it would have gotten a 5 rating from me.
If you’re looking for a fast, networkable and affordable printer, take a look at the HP Deskjet 6940. This printer has been around since 2006, but it’s still available and is a pretty good bargain. There is no need for a USB cable if you network it through its wired Ethernet port. It is 17.7″ x 14.4 x 5.7 and weighs in at just over 13.2 lbs.
The speed and print quality of this little machine are just short of amazing. In draft mode this little printer will pump out up to 36 pages per minute in black and up to 27 pages per minute in color. To be perfectly honest, in draft mode, the print looks great. At it’s maximum resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi, don’t expect anywhere near those numbers though.
HP Deskjet 6940 Ink Cartridges – The HP Deskjet 6940 uses the HP C8767W #96 Black Cartridge and the HP #97 Color Cartridge. The #96 holds 21ml of ink and is rated at 800 pages at 5% coverage. At a price of 28.95 that works out to just about 3.6 cents per page. The #97 holds 14ml of ink and is rated at 450 pages at 15% density coverage. At a price of 34.95 that works out to about 7.8 cents per page. Not the best price per page ratio we’ve seen, but you could certainly do worse. The Deskjet 6940 also can use hp ink cartridges #99 and the HP #100. The HP #99 (C9369WN) ink cartridge is part of the HP Vivera line of ink cartridges. It prints true to live color and provides fade resistant prints. The HP #100 (C9368AN) Ink Cartridge is also a Vivera ink cartridge that is used for professional quality black and white photos. Hp claims that photos printed with the HP 99 should last for 50 years or longer.
Overall, this is a nice little printer. Very good overall. It’s fast, networkable, and affordable. You can find this printer on Amazon.com for around 87.99. Power users may want to opt for the additional 250 sheet paper tray, but for the standard user, this printer may fit your needs nicely.
