As one of HP’s most popular ink cartridges – used in over 50 HP printers, the HP 364 is in big demand across Ireland as a compatible ink cartridge. The high-quality compatible inks offer big savings against the original brand cartridges and come with the high capacity colour cartridges holding 100% more ink than the originals that means up to 100% more printing! The HP 364 ink cartridges come in four colours, black cyan, magenta and yellow and are among a select few cartridges produced by Hp that allow the user to replace individually. Up to now most of the HP printers, some listed below, would have 2 cartridges, one for black ink and one for colour.
Also, in a step away from past ink cartridge types, the cartridges do not contain a printhead, the printhead is located in the printer. In many previous models the print head was located in the ink cartridge that meant that the cost of the cartridge was more expensive than HP’s competitor cartridges that produced a similar quality print. It also meant that in the past the non-original replacement cartridge could not be reproduced as a compatible but only as a remanufactured cartridge.
This entailed a once original cartridge being taken back to the factory and cleaned, repaired if necessary, refilled with ink, tested and boxed. One advantage to this type of ink cartridge was that each time you inserted the
cartridge you were using a new print head but the expense for the end user was too high and HP have seemed to moved to follow its rival manufacturers in the hope of bringing down the price of the cartridges. The compatible version of the HP364XL ink cartridge with it’s low price, in some cases as low as €2.94 per cartridge, combined with its extra ink has got to be one of the best buys of 2016 for those who own an HP printer.
