      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.

  • I've just fitted an HP 301 cartridge into my all-in-one printer HP 3050A and it says "incompatble cartridge". The printer was purchased overseas and until now used has used HP 122 cartridges (CH561H) whilst in the Middle East. I've now returned to the UK and am trying to install a HP301 CH561E cartridge, since the HP 122 cartridge doesn't exist in the UK. Can you please help? Thanks.

    Cartridge numbers for HP 3050A printer

    Unfortunately, because your HP Deskjet 3050A printer was puchased outside of the UK, it won't accept the HP 301 cartridges which will only work if your Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer was purchased in the UK. It might be possible for HP to change the region code on your printer so that it can accept the UK cartridge numbers (HP 301 / 301XL) that we supply. However, only HP are able to offer this service so you'd need to contact them directly for further assistance on this matter.

  • I just need colour ink for my HP Deskjet 3050A printer as I have masses of black ink already. Can I buy it separately please?

    Colour ink for Deskjet 3050A

    Yes, we sell single packs of the Deskjet 3050A tri-colour ink cartridges as well as the multipacks which have both black and colour ink. You can use either the HP 301 tri-colour ink cartridge or the HP 301XL high capacity tri-colour ink cartridge in the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer. Both of these cartridges are available as genuine HP products or we have a compatible HP 301XL tri-colour cartridge which is made by a third-party manufacturer as a cheaper alternative. Please see the links below for the single colour cartridges that work in the Deskjet 3050A printer:

  • How do I replace ink in the Deskjet 3050A and which is the best ink to buy?

    Buying HP 3050A ink cartridges

    Your HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer manual should have instructions on how to replace the ink cartridges. If not, please contact HP directly to ask for technical support. The best ink to buy for your Deskjet 3050A depends on the nature of your printing. For example, if you want the best print quality and reliability you can't go far wrong ordering the genuine HP Deskjet 3050A ink cartridges. They're available in HP 301 standard capacity cartridges and HP 301XL high capacity cartridges for black and colour. High capacity 301XL cartridges contain more ink and produce a lower cost-per-print so if you use up a lot of ink they are the best choice. If you want the cheapest cartridges and aren't concerned with buying HP branded ink you should consider our high quality compatible HP Deskjet 3050A ink cartridges which are sold at a lower price and work equally well within the printer.

HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer

Our Verdict:

The HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One, aka the CR231B, is a 3-in-1 printer allowing you to print, copy and scan. Designed for home use, this printer would definitely struggle handling the needs of a small business, thanks to the small paper tray and lack of duplexer. The printer does, however, come with some excellent features including HP's 'e-print' technology, allowing you to connect to the printer from anywhere in the world using e-mail or your smart phone.

Design

Featuring a 5 cm mono display, the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One allows you to control a number of functions directly from the printer. Paper capacity is rather limited on this device with only 60 sheets, although its connectivity tools, including WiFi and the previously mentioned "e-print" technologies are some of the best on the market. Surprisingly there is no memory card support, although being able to print direct from smart phones and cameras makes up for that.

Advantages

For a home device the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One is the perfect size (249 x 427 x 406 mm), plus its WiFi connectivity means it can be tucked away, without the need for cumbersome wires. In terms of print quality, text comes out looking crisp and clear, while colour printing is more than acceptable for a multi-functional device in this price range.

Disadvantages

Where this printer really falls short, is its potential to be used by a small business or home business user; the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One is claimed to be able to handle small business needs, yet it has very limited paper capacity, no duplex printing and print speeds are average.
