      Quick delivery and a better price than original..
      But its far too early to report on its printing capacity.. The print quality appears to be
      good. Am using on a HP Laserjet 1022.

      Excellent service as usual, fast & efficient at a great price for my old black & white HP printer cartridge.
      The cartridge was easy to open and install and the print quality was of a high standard.
      I always turn to the Cartridge Save website for all my printing needs.
      Thank you for your excellent service even during the Covid19 pandemic.
      Stay safe! Order on line at Cartridge Save.

      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.

      I bought a printer to use with HP Laserjet 1020, which was minimally cheaper from you than from a storer in town, and saved me a busride! Print quality is fine, I would certainly recommend you to others. The delivery was also fine, it came at a good time in the morning, the day after I placed the order. What a pity ink cartridges are so expensive, it is one of the most expensive things I ever need to buy.

HP LaserJet 1012 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP LaserJet 1012 printer

Our Verdict:

The HP Laserjet 1012 is designed to be an efficient printer for at-home use, attaching via a USB cable which you must purchase separately, and printing at speeds up to 13 pages per minute. However, this machine will not hold up to heavy use in an office setting, due to the limited capacity of its paper tray, its liberal use of toner, and its overall speed.

Design

The power button on this machine is located on the back, which some may find inconvenient. Its software is designed to be easy to install, yet users have found that background applications, including anti-virus software, can disrupt the installation process, something which the user manual fails to mention. It is rather large for a printer of its somewhat limited capacity, but this should not be considered a drawback for those who need a reliable printer as part of a home office network. It is meant for one user.

Advantages

Clearly, this machine has some good features for a printer in this price range. The included software allows the user to print watermarks, making it ideal for a small business owner. Once connected, the software should not be difficult to install, provided that you've shut down any applications running in the background, including web browsers and any anti-virus programs. At 13 pages per minute, this machine prints sufficiently fast for a single user, but it is not ideal for multiple users to share.

Disadvantages

This printer is less than ideal for multiple users on a network, due to its small paper tray and its print speed of only 13 pages per minute. Also, the power button is located in the back of the machine next to the ac cord and the USB cable, making it necessary to reach behind the machine to turn it on and off. While these drawbacks are not enough to scare away some users, such as home business professionals and single users, a medium-sized business will not find this to be a suitable workhorse for heavy duty printing. The printer's dimensions are a bit bulky for a one-person printer.
