Continuous Ink Supply Systems: Is It Worth The Trouble?

More and more people are looking for potentially effective ways to cut on costs for expensive printing supplies such as HP cartridges. Some users choose to purchase refill kits, while others use compatibles to prevent the expensive outlays; be it for the home and office. As printing requirements are increasingly essential for everyone, most of users want to manage expenses. One of the potentially cost-efficient solutions to lessen costs is called the CISS or simply CIS, which stands for Continuous Ink Supply System or Continuous Ink System. This method allows for a steady stream of ink supply from an external source into HP cartridges, without the need to change HP cartridges at all. Let us discuss and reveal the advantages of CIS and identify whether this is an effective way of reducing expenses in the long run. One of the advantages of CIS is obviously the cost implications compared to original HP cartridges. When ink is purchased in bulk the costs are relatively cheaper compared to conventional cartridges. It also saves users the inconvenience of having to run frequently to ink supply stores for replacement ink. Overhead expenses are relatively decreased because of the savings which CIS promises. CIS can last for months or even years depending on the volume of prints. Users that print frequently also need not be hassled by having to change HP cartridges time and again. Most users incur delays when they print continuously in the home or office, and have to stop every now and then to replace HP cartridges should these have low ink levels. CIS also boasts of easy to refill tanks for the convenience of its users. Those who are particularly conscious about the environment opt for CIS it wastes less packaging compared to conventional HP cartridges. These are just some of the advantages of converting to CIS in the office or home. Remember, though, that this option is still incomparable from specifically manufactured HP cartridges for the HP printer.

Since there are people who use the CIS or Continuous Ink System in the office or home, many suppliers have marketed the same featuring its relative advantages. While the common user may be enticed with the increased savings they enjoy compared to original HP cartridges, there are a few things which must still be considered before converting. Like any other cheaper option in the market, there are clear cut disadvantages of using CIS. One of the reasons why most individuals convert to CIS from original HP cartridges is due to its cost implications. We are all conscious about our expenses and want to look for ways to lessen our outlays. Most users fail to realize that CIS is quite tricky; utilizing supplies not specifically designed for HP printers can damage the printing device. This requires more expenses in the long run as users would need to frequently replace broken printers. It also results in continuous maintenance, which is costly in itself. Converting to CIS also voids the warranty of the printer and users can no longer send these devices over to service centers for proper repair. Compared to original HP cartridges, CIS uses low cost inks with particles that may harden and cause obstructions on the printer head. Printer heads are relatively expensive and are considered the most costly part to replace. If you think about it, CIS brings in a lot of expenses which take the place of the savings realized from purchasing the system. In the long run, the user is better off simply sticking to original HP cartridges. For those who plan to utilize a CIS for their printer, it is best to think about the cost implications and the hassles of having to service the printing device on a regular basis. There may be more to worry about in the long run.
