    • 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.

      • 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.

HP PSC 1205 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP PSC 1205 printer

Our Verdict:

This multifunction device is designed to meet the basic scanning, copying, and printing needs of a small office. The HP PSC 1205 is user-friendly and promises true-to-life pictures and crisp-looking text documents, but it would have been better if it had a fax machine, networking capabilities, and faster print speeds.

Design

The HP PSC 1205 is an easy-to-use inkjet colour printer integrated with a digital copier and a CIS scanner. It is lightweight and easily mobile at 10.9 lb. It's also fairly compact, measuring 10.2 inches in diameter (with the paper tray), 16.76 inches wide, and 6.68 inches tall. The printer is energy efficient and consumes a maximum of 5 watts when printing. HP gave this model an 8MB RAM, which some say is rather insufficient for a multifunction device.

Advantages

Photo printing with the HP PSC 1205 is impressive because you can enhance to resolution to 4800x1200 dpi. Users can scan documents quickly because the scanner does not need to be warmed-up, and the resolution of scanned objects can be digitally enhanced up to 19200 dpi. Unlike other inkjet printers, the HP PSC 1205 is quieter when printing, with only 49dBA of sound in monochrome printing and 45dBA in colour. The printer is also affordable and can be used as a standalone copier.

Disadvantages

While the HP PSC 1205 offers good quality output, it is very slow. A high-resolution photograph on an A4 paper takes at least 5 minutes to come out. At its fastest 'draft' mode, the HP PSC 1205 can only print up to 12ppm (monochrome) and 10ppm (colour). The scanner could use improvement in terms of speed and handling darker colours. The copier is slow, too.
