      I have a HP7310 printer and I have never had any problems when using the recommended HP339 and 344 cartridges. They are expensive, but the print quality is good. They last well and they are 100% compatible with the printer. Cartridgesave provide a very prompt and reliable service and their prices are competitive.

      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.

HP Photosmart 428 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Photosmart 428 printer

Our Verdict:

Often described as one of the most innovative models from the Photosmart series because of its sleek and compact design, PictBridge capabilities, and lab-quality output, the HP Photosmart 428 is popular with photography enthusiasts. However, there are limits to what the 428 can do because it seems to only be compatible with select HP cameras. Photos also smudge easily when exposed to moisture.

Design

HP integrated a proprietary camera dock for compatible devices on the body of the HP Photosmart 428. That way, the printer can simultaneously charge the batteries of the camera and print. All controls are conveniently located on top of the printer body and are intuitively laid out. The HP Photosmart 428 features 2 USB 2.0 slots.

Advantages

Users can connect the HP Photosmart 428 to a TV to view pictures or use the HP digital camera which is bundled with the printer. This device is highly portable and lightweight, which is why it is often described as a photo studio on-the-go. The HP Photosmart 428 can also print from PictBridge-compatible cameras and computers via USB 2.0. It is user-friendly and features easy-to-understand controls.

Disadvantages

There is no actual LCD screen on the printer; users need to view the pictures on their computer, connect the printer to a TV, or sift through the images from a compatible HP digital camera while it is docked on the printer. The print quality is inferior to standalone photo printers by the same manufacturer because of over-saturation and the quality of the ink. Finally, like other Photosmart printers, the HP Photosmart 428 can only print on standard-sized photo paper (4x6-inch and 13x17-inch). The camera that comes with it is an ordinary point-and-shoot – certainly not good enough for serious digital photography enthusiasts.
