      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.

      • 3-year warranty
        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-445 Printer Review

Expert review of the Epson XP-445 printer

Our Verdict:

The Epson XP-445 is a wireless, all-in-one inkjet printer that brings together scan, copy and print functions into one attractive and compact unit. It’s ideal for the small office and its email printing and Direct Wi-Fi capabilities make it extremely flexible. Use it to print from just about anywhere, and keep costs down by replacing only individual ink cartridges as and when you need to.

Design

The Epson XP445 has dimensions of 15.3x11.8x5.7 inches and weighs 3.9kg. A 2.6-inch LCD screen controls all the functions from the front of the unit. Wired connectivity is via USB 2, and wireless connectivity uses Google Cloud Print, Apple AirPrint and Wi-Fi Direct, as well as regular Wi-Fi. The memory card slot takes SD and SDHC in addition to Memory Stick Duo and SDXC. Print resolution is 5760x1440 dpi, and print capability is 33 pages black and white or 15 pages colour per minute. The colour flatbed scanner has a resolution of 1200x2400 dpi and the paper tray takes up to 50 sheets of A4. Epson Easy Photo Print and Epson Event Manager Software are both included in the Epson XP-445 box.

Advantages

The Epson XP-445 represents excellent quality at a great price and provides the copying, printing and scanning needs of most home office users. The choice of mobile printing options is a huge plus for this product, and the fact that a PC is not needed to print documents and photos via the memory card slot is an attractive feature. Only ink cartridges that have run out need replacing and this reduces wastage, as well as saving money.

Disadvantages

The double-sided printing is manual, which is not to everyone’s taste. There is no automatic document feeder and the LCD control panel at the front cannot be tilted to improve its visibility in adverse lighting conditions.
