      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.

Epson XP-442 Printer Review

Expert review of the Epson XP-442 printer

Our Verdict:

The Epson XP-442 is a dedicated, multi-function printer for documents and photos that fits in well with modern printing needs. Only the colours used up need to be replaced and the incorporation of Epson Connect means that there are many options for mobile printing from a remote PC, laptop or smart device. There is also a handy memory card slot that accepts a range of card types.

Design

The Epson XP442 measures 15.3x11.8x5.7 inches and has a weight of 4.3kg, making moving the unit around the home or office absurdly easy. There is a choice of interfaces with other devices, including USB and Wi-Fi connectivity, and the card slot to the left of the control panel accepts most types of card. The printer has a resolution of 5760x1440 dpi, which is more than enough for most needs. The scan resolution is also excellent, at 1200x2400 dpi, using a high-performance contact image sensor to achieve optimal results. The unit’s frontal LCD screen and associated control buttons provide the human interface with the unit, and the screen’s 3.7cm diagonal is clear enough for most purposes and lighting conditions.

Advantages

The Epson XP-442 is a good, compact all-rounder that cost-effectively provides excellent scanning and printing functionality, certainly sufficient for most needs. Its use of separate ink cartridges helps cut costs and reduce wastage, and using the iPrint app provides a simple and easy way of printing and scanning from remote locations, although the unit can also be connected directly to any device. Epson Email Print and the Creative App that bundles with the pack are also extremely useful.

Disadvantages

The LCD display, which cannot be tilted, may not be to the liking of everyone, and the large, labelled buttons can appear somewhat simplistic. The classic shape may also appear overly retro to some eyes.
