      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.

    1. 100%

      By GRAHAM CHAMBERLAIN on

      Concerned my usual ink was out of stock but desperate to renew cartridge so with some reservations opted for the compatible alternative. Took an extra day to arrive due to the postage delay but delighted with product. Easy to install and print quality very good and, more relevant, a considerable and most welcome saving in cost.

HP Deskjet 2540 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Deskjet 2540 printer

Our Verdict:

The HP Deskjet 2540 is a low-cost all-in-one inkjet printer that comes with wireless technology, allowing easy printing directly from mobile devices. It's a straightforward printer with scanning and copying functions, ideal for home users in need of an every-day printer that can also process documents. The HP Deskjet 2540 all-in-one printer also has USB connectivity for fast integration with a PC, although it does not support network connectivity, nor does it have an automatic document feeder.

Design

The HP Deskjet 2540 AiO printer is sleek and compact, with a matte black and white finish that suits almost any kind of home or office decor. The HP 2540 Deskjet printer has a simple and straightforward control panel, and a flatbed scanner, which doubles as a digital copier. The front panel pulls down and swings out for extra paper support. For quick data transfer via wired connection, the HP Deskjet 2540 all-in-one colour printer also has a USB socket.

Advantages

The HP Deskjet 2540 colour inkjet printer is offered at a very low purchase price, making it an attractive choice for households and personal users. It features simple controls and a small LCD for monitoring print, copy, and scan status. The Deskjet 2540 printer produces good quality prints and copies, and it offers wireless connectivity, which is a step up from other all-in-one devices in the same range. Savings on ink can be made by purchasing XL cartridges for the Deskjet 2540 all-in-one printer which deliver a lower cost-per-print.

Disadvantages

However, the Deskjet 2540 all-in-one inkjet seems to have a fiddly cartridge slot, which makes ink replacement inconvenient. The HP 2540 multifunction printer also lacks network support, and only allows manual scanning of documents, making it harder to manage multiple-page originals.
