With there being a common perception that printer ink is relatively expensive, individuals looking for value for money should ensure they purchase a larger cartridge, it has been stated.

Writing a blog for Computerworld, Robert Mitchell comments on a presentation previously given by Thom Brown, a marketing manager at ink provider HP.

It is noted that reasons given for the high costs of some cartridges by Mr Brown were that they provided a greater image quality and better reliability in regards to the end product.

Alongside the liquids used in the ink cartridges being "completely different from a technology standpoint", Mr Brown remarked that there were steps that could be followed for those looking to save money.

One of which involved purchasing extra large print cartridges as these proved cheaper in terms of the costs per page printed, while they will also reduce the need to constantly be changing ink.

Mark Hiller, the managing director of Lexmark, recently told ITWebPro that users should focus on the cost of printing each page rather than the amount of ink in a cartridge when making a new purchase.
