Hewlett Packard (HP 99) Photo Color Ink cartridgeThis Remanufactured HP 99 Photo Ink Cartridge is an original HP inkjet cartridge which has been through one cycle of service and has been recharged. It has been thoroughly cleaned along with the printhead nozzles. Then it was inspected for any possible shell leakage, tested on the operation of all electrical circuitry and finally run through an actual print test.
This photo ink cartridge contains 1/3 black, 1/3 light cyan and a 1/3 light magenta. You replace your black cartridge with this photo color inkjet cartridge. It goes in the black slot, not the color slot. When you have the photo and regular color cartridge in your printer it produces better looking photos. Instead of only having four colors to print with (black, cyan, magenta, and yellow) it now has six colors. Photo inkjet cartridges are great for people who print lots of photos or color documents but not recommended for people who print mainly text. This is because the photo cartridge has about a third as much black ink in it compared with a black cartridge. Once this ink is out the cartridge has to be replaced. Even if the light cyan and light magenta sections are full of ink you will need a new cartridge.
