    • 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.

  • Where does the ink cartridge go in a HP DeskJet 2600?

    The ink cartridges in the HP DeskJet 2600 printer go behind the output tray. To access the cartridges, turn the printer on, lower the paper output tray, reach inside the printer and lower the ink cartridge access door. To remove a cartridge, gently press down on it and then pull it out of its slot.

  • How do I refill my HP DeskJet 2600 ink cartridge?

    Home refilling HP 2600 cartridges is not recommended. DIY cartridge refilling can result in blurred printouts, messy ink spills and poor colour definition. However, professionally refurbished and refilled cartridges, often referred to as “compatible cartridges” can be used without worry.

HP Deskjet 2600 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Deskjet 2600 printer

Our Verdict:

The HP DeskJet 2600 is an all-in-one printer that also provides copying and scanning functions. With its colourful appearance and compact size, this is a good choice for homes and smaller offices. It can be used to create a range of written documentation as well as documents with images, or photographs. To boost the unit’s processing power, there is an integrated memory of 512MB, as well as a 256MB flash memory. Wireless connectivity comes as standard, and HP ePrint, along with Apple AirPrint, can be used to save time when creating copies. Various types of media are accepted, including cards, envelopes and labels.

Design

When the output and input trays are extended, the HP DeskJet 2600 measures 16.73 x 21.56 x 9.79 inches, and it weighs 7.55 lb. As a particularly lightweight unit, it is easy to transport and relocate as necessary. To ensure a range of different functions work faster, there is a high-speed USB 2.0 port, and wireless connectivity comes as standard. The copier can auto-enlarge documents and offers a resolution of up to 600 x 300 dpi.

Advantages

For draft copies, the print speed reaches 20 pages per minute in monochrome and 16 pages per minute in colour. When in ISO mode, the print speeds are reduced, reaching 7.5 pages per minute in monochrome and 5.5 pages per minute in colour. On photographic paper and when printing directly from a PC, the colour resolution is up to 4800 x 1200 dpi. The monthly duty cycle is 1,000 copies. The HP DeskJet 2600 is compatible with a range of operating systems, including iOS and Microsoft. Up to three users can connect to the HP DeskJet 2600 at any one time to activate their print jobs.

Disadvantages

As the duplexing function must be completed manually, users will have to spend more time when double-sided copies are needed.
