Lexmark's Moderate Use cartridges are designed for cost conscious consumers with lower volume printing needs. The price and ink volume of these cartridges are tailored to the price sensitivities and usage patterns of moderate users. Like all genuine Lexmark cartridges, the Moderate Use cartridges deliver outstanding print quality on both plain paper and specialty media products. The Lexmark High Resolution Black Moderate Use cartridge No.17 uses Lexmark's exclusive super sharp black ink to deliver high-precision dot definition. This improved black ink formula produces outstanding laser-like text that is fast drying, fade-resistant.¤¤All Lexmark inkjet cartridges have the actual print head, there where the core inkjet technology lies, integrated to the cartridge bottle. The main advantage to having the print head as an integrated part to the cartridge is that Lexmark customers get a new print head with each cartridge replacement! This is each time like getting a brand new printer all over again! No risk of deterioration of the print head (and therefore a decrease in quality) during the life of the printer as can be the case with other manufacturers who integrate the print head as a fixed part inside the printer itself.¤¤2400x1200 dots per inch is the ability that Lexmark print heads have to place individual droplets of ink accurately on a 2400x1200 matrix per square inch of paper. Extreme precision and high resolution lead to the first class print quality provided by Lexmark print heads.¤¤Lexmark uses pigment-based inks for the development of all their black inks. The reason for this is simple as pigmented inks are extremely resistant to fading over time and infrared readable! The Lexmark pigmented black ink ensures maximum performance in black text print quality. The result is incredibly sharp, crisp, laser-quality images and text, even on plain paper!¤¤All Lexmark printer drivers offer a choice of printing modes based on the quality required and the time available to customers. The Quick Print mode (600x300 dpi) uses less than 50% of the ink quantity used in higher printing modes and provides a maximum print speed while still ensuring a more than acceptable quality. The Quick Print mode enables you to use the ink in an economical and efficient way based on your specific needs!
