      I have been using CartridgeSave for cartridges for my Canon Pixmar for some time. As I have purchased the genuine cartridge i would expect the installation to be easy and the print quality good. The price is reasonable. I have always been pleased with the prompt service, but in these days of Coronavirus, I was impressed and delighted that I still received my order the next day. Thank you Cartridge Save staff (and postal workers).

      By Robin Morris on

      I have used Canon printers for more than 30 years, always using Canon's own inks. I like the fact that they dry quicker than some "compatible" inks , do not clog up the ink jets and compute with the printer.
      I purchase from Cartridgesave.com as their prices are at the lower end of the scale compared to other suppliers and the next day delivery is excellent. Especially when I forget the low ink reminder and one of the cartridges runs out.

      As usual, excellent, quick, service and delivery, and good quality product which is easily installed, and produces good results. Also the price is a little on the high side, but have tried non branded alternatives, and although much cheaper, quality is lower. Recommended, and always impressed with the service. would have awarded five stars if a little cheaper.

      3-year warranty on our own-brand cartridges
      We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
      Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
      We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
      Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:
      1. We are the UK’s biggest seller of own-brand cartridges, and we have invested a lot in optimising them.
      2. We are dedicated to quality. Every own-brand cartridge is performance-tested before it leaves the factory.
      3. We constantly monitor customer feedback, and quickly resolve any issues.
    • Printer protection guarantee
      Our cartridges won't damage your printer—guaranteed
      Some people worry that own-brand cartridges might damage their printers. We know from experience that ours don’t.
      To reassure you, we guarantee that we’ll repair or replace your printer—for free—in the unlikely event that it gets damaged by an own-brand cartridge. This is regardless of how old your printer is. We can afford to offer this because problems are almost unheard of.
      Some people whose printers are less than a year old worry that an own-brand cartridge might invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty. This isn’t true. By law, the manufacturers aren’t allowed to invalidate your warranty if you use own-brand cartridges. If something does go wrong, and our own-brand cartridges are to blame, we’ll take over the manufacturer’s warranty, offer you phone support and repair or replace your printer if needed.

      In summary, there’s zero risk in using our own-brand cartridges.

Canon Pixma MP540 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma MP540 printer

Our Verdict:

An affordable multifunction printer, the Canon Pixma MP540 is above average when it comes to print quality and performance. It lets you print directly from your memory card or digital devices and comes with 2 paper trays. The only major drawback is the absence of Wi-Fi. The relatively slow print speed may also limit productivity.

Design

The Canon Pixma MP540 promises hassle-free copying, scanning, and printing in one compact device that weighs around 7.8 Kg. It supports card direct printing and Bluetooth to compensate for the lack of Wi-Fi. When not in use, you can close the LCD screen and the output paper tray to keep dust from getting inside the Canon Pixma MP540.

Advantages

The Pixma MP540 lives up to its name as a photo printer because aside from producing high-quality prints, it features another paper tray just for handling photo paper. There is a 5cm TFT display with an Easy-Scroll Wheel for ease in navigation of prints, settings, and printer functions. Print resolution is high at 9600x2400dpi, so you get superior photolab prints. The flatbed scanner boasts a resolution of 2400x4800, which can be enhanced to 19200x19200 dpi for more accurate output.

Disadvantages

With a speed of 2.4 ppm for 'standard' colour mode, the Canon Pixma MP540 is not the fastest colour printer in the market. It is sluggish in monochrome, too, producing about 6.6 ppm. Black ink is also expensive, and the lack of Wi-Fi can be a problem for some.
