      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 3055 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP LaserJet 3055 printer

Our Verdict:

The HP LaserJet 3055 is a multipurpose printer that sends and receives faxes, scans in monochrome, prints in both colour and monochrome and is ideal for homes and students. The printer is easy to use and its printing speed is 16 pages per minute while it scans colour documents at 600 dpi. It weighs quite light and doesn't take up much space, thus perfect for homes with limited space.

Design

The HP 3055 toner printer makes use of a vertical scanner instead of the design featured on most LaserJet scanners such as the LaserJet 3030. Underneath the printer, there is a sheet tray that handles 550 sheets and 10 sheets of envelopes, heavy paper stock and letterhead paper. The HP 3055 toner printer has a button that, if pressed, opens the top part of the printer and exposes the toner imaging/cartridge drum. The back of the HP 3055 features a parallel port, USB 2.0 port as well as a telephone jack. The HP 3055 comes with a clear LCD control panel that simplifies the work of using the printer. In fact, the control panel puts buttons in groups such as fax setup, numeric keypad and a set of speed dials.

Advantages

This printer is small, multipurpose and does not eat up a lot of space. This makes it suitable to be used by students and in small home offices. Similar to other HP printers, an HTML viewer installs in the HP LaserJet 3055 making it possible to monitor its performance from a personal computer. The printer also comes with a program that converts scanned documents into text format. The HP 3055 toner printer has a substantial storage space of 32MB and thus is able to store about 250 fax pages. The use of the sheetfed design also succeeds in keeping the price of the printer down.

Disadvantages

Although the HP 3055's sheetfed design makes it affordable, this feature also makes it hard for the printer to copy, scan or fax pages bound in a magazines or books. It is also unable to handle huge stacks of documents. Even though the text output is clear and crisp, a few dark and grainy spots can be observed.
