      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 3015 All-In-One Printer Review

Expert review of the HP LaserJet 3015 All-In-One printer

Our Verdict:

The nice thing about all-in-one printers is that they meet most of your office needs, such as printing, copying, scanning, and faxing. The not-so-nice thing about them is that they tend to be expensive, and manufacturers often price them outside the budget range of the home user and even the small office. The alternative is a cheaper model, but that usually means missing or deficient features. Neither is the case with the HP LaserJet 3015 All-In-One. With this printer, HP manages to pack in all the performance you'd expect at a price you can actually afford. That's not to say the 3015 is without issue but none of them are deal-breakers, and most users can live with them at this price point.

Design

For the LaserJet 3015, HP uses a dark grey and antique white colour scheme. This is the worst aspect of the design because these two colours contrast, which causes the device to stand out. Physically, the unit is much taller and wider than it is deep, and because of this, it fits shelving more easily than cube-style printers do. The downside is that it's not quite as stable, so you certainly don't want to sit it up high. It also has a retractable output tray, and if that tray becomes loaded, it can set the whole thing off balance if not on a wide enough platform.

Advantages

The biggest advantage to the HP 3015 is the control panel, a powerful interface that you'd expect to find on a more expensive machine. Despite all the functionality, the control panel manages to be intuitive and easy to use, and you can even access it via your PC. The LaserJet 3015 is network-ready, and it has a full range of PC-fax features. Another advantage is that the black HP 3015 toner cartridges are priced aggressively, and a standard HP 3015 toner cartridge provides 2,000 pages at 5% coverage (with budget high capacity alternative HP 3015 toner cartridges producing 4,000 pages).

Disadvantages

In terms of design, the LaserJet 3015 has some issues. Nevertheless, if you have a spot for it that is larger than the printer base, most of those issues go away. In terms of performance, HP intends the HP 3015 primarily for text printing, and it really excels in that department. However, there are some quality issues when it comes to colour printing, graphics and scanning. These flaws aren't big issues for the average user who will typically be making disposable copies and scans. However, if you intend to print high-quality pictures, newsletters, copies, scans, and so forth, the HP 3015 can fall a little short of the mark.
