What's with Quality of HP Ink?

Q: What's with Quality of HP Ink?

I just bought an HP 21 black ink cartridge to use on my deskjet 3930 printer, I set my print properties to normal fast printing, with grayscale, and printed about 140 pages (some almost blank and all double spaced) of a text document, It stops at about 160page and completely runs out of ink. What is up with this stingy ink cartridge?
Anyone know of a better printer, that will yield more pages per cartridge?
My mother had an old brand that didn't print as fast as most modern printers, but you could get like 300pages with a single cartridge.

A: What's with Quality of HP Ink?

I own one ink jet printer but frankly with the prices of ink coming down, you need to look at laser printers. For my use Canon were always the least expensive cartridges and the longest lasting. Where I changed cartridges about every 2 months, with laser cartridges I do that yearly and the prices are only about double that of ink jet cartridges.

Hello,

I'm having problems with my the graphics card on my laptop. It's an APU and I have picture and videos problems. Whenever I watch movies or look at pictures I see most things fuzzy, (if that makes any sense). I tried to watch a DVD and the video quality was unbearable. The most unbelievable thing is it affects picture quality. I can't do anything without poor quality pictures or videos. I have tried installing new drivers and all sorts of things. Is it me or is it my laptop?

What programs do you use to convert VHS tapes to DVD that give very good quality on the playback on a TV ??

When I capture the VHS to the PC, the file plays great with excellent clarity (just as good as the original tape).

Yet, when I use software to put the file to DVD (for example, Windows 7 DVD maker, Pinnacle Studio 12, VHS2DVD,... ) they all create a lot of artifacts and distortion in the DVD... which wasn't in the original file played on the PC.

So, anyone have any ideas or leads?

Thanks a bunch!

A:VHS to DVD quality

Althought I edit all my HD video from my camera on my PC. I found the very best way to convert VHS to DVD was to actually use a console DVD recorder. Record each tape to a DVD. Then I have the raw, DVD "source" Then copy the DVD contents to my PC and edit if I want or backup. But since Tape is 1:1 playback speed only anyway, it's just far easier to record realtime straight to a DVD-R deck.

[edit]One problem with digitizing the VHS then converting to DVD is that you are goinf through two compressions which loses quality. The tape to DVD method one only compresses once directly to mpeg2 (DVD format) [/edit]

A:Mic quality

I have a computer based recording studio using Sonar. I would never use a "computer" mic or the built in computer sound card for any recordings.

You didn't list your system specs so we can't directly comment on your hardware. But, at a minimum I would suggest a good quality USB connected mic such as Samson or Shure, if you want to use the built in hardware for recording. Otherwise an external USB connected interface unit and a good mic with an XLR connector for the interface unit would be my recommendation.

I purchased three wireless headsets and returned two of them in the last month. Two were made by creative (One the HS-1200) and the one I have now is the .Audio 995 by Plantronics. Every one of them had the same issue, the mic quality is awful. They even sound the same.

I honestly don't know where to look anymore, I've tried everything I can think of down to fiddling with settings under sound to installing drivers. My suspicion is its something to do with the USB drive not working with my sound card when it comes to the mic. I've plugged these headsets into every USB on my PC, around 6-8 different places.

When I go under sound/recording/Microphone/properties/advanced I cannot change the default format from the lowest setting. Yet when I plug in my jack headset I can change that to whatever I please. Is the problem that the mic is just set to low quality? Help would be much appreciated.

What software are you using to convert from MP3? That is probably where your problem is. Look for some kind of quality setting in the software doing the conversion.

I build computers to sell on eBay and one of the most costly factors is my time. Lately, more and more, it's been spent troubleshooting only to find that it wasn't operator error, but rather manufacturer defects that are the problem. Cases, mostly, are worthless. I've tried lots of different brands, and the only common thread has been poor quality and manufacturer defects.

Does anyone know of a quality case company; maybe something not out of China? I would be willing to pay more, of course, to save myself the time of returning cases to the store time and again and troubleshooting only to find something is wrong with the product. If I found one really good case, I'd like to think I could just buy that one over and over.

I'd like to convert some high bitrate MP3 files to FLAC, but at a lower quality FLAC settings.
These are spoken word MP3's so I'm not too concerned with quality. Any suggestions?

What's a low settings I can use? Preferably transcode with VLC if possible, or Audacity.
 

A:low quality FLAC

I don't knwo much about FLAC but the quality line for MP3 is in the 48 to 64 kbs range, mono channel since its spoken word (sterio will sound horrible at that bitrate). 64 variable bit rate sounds almost perfect all the time. 48 constant bit rate will have a good number of artifacts in the audio but it will still be acceptable to listen to for long periods of time. Anything lower depends on the tollerance level of the listener.

I don't know how these numbers relate to FLAC (but there's only so many bits to play with at that level) but that should allow you to focus in quicker on something acceptable.

Since everyone is sending me photos over the internet or on CDs, I've been looking into printing them myself. The results are pretty dismal. While the pictures look great on the screen, they are fuzzy and look quite out of focus coming out of my printer, an HP Deskjet 842C.

I've been using the Photo Printing Wizard, which came with my Dell computer and Windows XP. Under "Preferences", I click "Best". My browser, by the way, is Opera. I like smallish pictures, so I've been using the layout of 4 pictures (3.5x5" each) to a 8x11" page. I prefer my photos in matte, and am using matte photo paper, 92 bright, 6 mil.

I realize that, by right-clicking the picture, I can open it with Dell Image expert application and make it sharper; but then the pixels start showing, and I don't like that either. Anyway, the originals, as sent me, are perfectly fine.

So, what should I do to get professional-looking snapshots out of my printer?

Thank you,

A:CD quality issues

Hi – welcome to TSG.

You might also Ctrl+Alt+Del and end task on everything but Systray and Explorer.

That being said I don’t think a RAM deficit would cause a drop in recording quality after 6 or so songs. Heat could be causing an alignment problem with the reader/laser or you could have gotten a bad batch of CDRs.

If you have had the same results with different brands of CDR and are not using RW I would return the unit if that is still possible.

It sounds like you had internet accellerator software using a proxy which fetched the page for you and recompressed image files to low quality. When you right clicked it gave you the option to download the full quality one.

A:poor quality

Most photos on the Internet are optimized to be as small a number as possible of bytes of information and still look acceptable on your monitor.

The reason is to minimize download times for web pages. So most pictures from the web are not suitable for enlarging or printing.

You can right click a picture and click on properties to see how many KB the picture is before you even download it. By experimenting you can up with a number you feel will enlarge enough for your purposes and make acceptable prints.

I include many pictures from the web in greeting cards I create. As long as you keep them small they can be fine for that purpose.

Looks like you are running an Unsupported version of WIndows OS on the PC.Hence, the issue.I would strongly recommend running the PC on the OS that it came with or the ones in the compatibility List. The compatible OS's for this PC are Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. If you installed windows 7 for a specific reason and because of this cannot change the OS of the PC, I would suggest you to try other sound solutions like external speakers or USB powered speakers.

I have media player 9 on an XP platform.

Suddenly a month ago the videos went to crap and are just pixilated mush. I played around in tools/performance I told it not to use video accelerators. That worked ! Except it will now not run fullscreen - presumably because without the accelerators it can't handle it.

turn them back on and the video goes back to a kaleidoscope videos.

I noticed that I can play my saved mpegs and wmv's fine - it's just the new ones that are messed and it just started. I can't believe that every vid I have received in the last 3 weeks is some new format that requires a codec I don't have. I can go back and play ones received in January - but almost all from Feb won't run with the accelerators turned on.

I am unable to see anything different between them in their properties. Any suggestions?

I know I could upgrade to 10 but it would be nice to identify the culprit. And besides - what if I go to 10 and it still does it!

It sounds like a codec issue the way you describe it. There are a number of tools that allow you to view/remove or analyse the codecs on the system. I can't recommend one off hand but maybe another member can. Have you installed any codec packs on the system before the issue started? Do you have any codec packs installed on your system at all? Most codec packs tend to mess up systems even the so called "lite ones." It's best to simply install the codecs you need instead of a codec pack.

One that does seem to be better then the rest is the K-Lite Codec Pack. It does have tools to remove bad/corrupted codecs on your system. It's worth a try if someone else doesn't have a better sugestion.

Hello Everyone,

A long time ago, my PC stopped rendering videos as it was suposed too.
The video looks like this (Image 1), but it looks like this (Image 2 and 3). Looks like is zooming. The quality is also a lot worst.
It does this in all videos in my PC and in some Youtube videos.
I have all my GPU drivers up to date (Crimson 16.1). I have this issue since 15.7.
VLC is the only program that doesnt do it.

Do you have any idea on what this could be?

PS: Sorry for my bad english

After 4.5 months of new Lenovo laptop usage the motherboard is dead. The laptop is under the warranty, but Lenovo cannot repair it, the ticket status is frozen for 20 days - "We are working diligently to obtain replenishment stock and will repair your machine as soon as the part becomes available". Maybe I am wrong, but the world "warranty" means something different. I escalated the ticket to level 2, they suggested to replace my machine having Core i7-6500U by Intel® Pentium® 4405U. And no ETA for the parts needed for repair. I do not want the money back, I want the machine and the service for which I have paid, because it was a present for my kid. But I pretty sure it was my last time buying something from Lenovo.

I record/produce music using a program called Acid Music Studio. I recently had to get my hard drive wiped because my laptop stopped starting up.

When I first got the laptop in March, I tried using the built-in microphone to record some vocals, but the quality sucked. My assumption was that the default bit rate for recording was low.

I messed with it for a while, and ended up downloading some codec that (I think) made the quality better.

When I got the laptop back, the quality was back to being crappy.

I don't remember what codec I got or even if it was the codec that fixed it to begin with. I know the microphone can record good quality because I recorded 2 and a half EPs with it, and they turned out pretty good.

If someone can help me fix this issue, I can get back to recording.......

Thanks in advance.
