      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.

      Having placed my order late on Friday afternoon I was told I would receive it on Monday. Imagine my delight when it came on Saturday morning. What excellent service. The print quality is v. good so was the price. Altogether delighted that my HP1005 is doing very well with the cartridge which was easy to install too. A very good service which I would happily recommend.

      Easy to install and works perfectly, with excellent quality print. I had purchased a cheaper, non-genuine replacement toner cartridge which was a nightmare to try and fit and did not work properly. I will not make the same mistake again! Next day delivery, as advertised, was achieved with no problems.

      The cartridge delivery for my HP Laserjet P1005 was excellent, on time as indicated and the installation was effortless, with the printer up and running again the print quality was superb. The price was good and I would certainly recommend and use Cartridge Save again when required.

HP LaserJet P1009 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP LaserJet P1009 printer

Our Verdict:

When Hewlett Packard launched the LaserJet P100x series, it set a new standard for quality photo printing in a home environment. The HP LaserJet P1009 is no exception, and the only thing that held its popularity back some was that it was monochrome only. Otherwise, the HP P1009 is an extremely attractive, streamlined and compact printing machine that outputs 1,200 dpi at 17 ppm. It has room for one HP P1009 toner cartridge, a 150 sheet capacity and an 8 second warm-up time. The P1009 is network-ready with high-speed USB 2.0 ports, and it is a great option for those who don't need to print colour and therefore don't need the added expense.

Design

As most modern computer peripherals intended for home use do, the HP P1009 employs a dark black colour scheme. But HP also uses a metal finish-like touch to give the P1009 a sleek appeal that most peripherals don't have, so this unit works quite well as a piece of furniture. It also has an extremely small footprint, and it is extremely lightweight, which makes it a good option for those that need portability. Perhaps the only issue with the design is the noise level it produces: 63.0 db. That level is quite loud even for cheap printers, and it could prove bothersome to sensitive listeners. On-board controls are minimal, but they get the job done for these purposes.

Advantages

If you need a reliable, durable printer for home use and don't have a need to print colour, then there's not much to dislike about the HP P1009 toner printer. It delivers on all of its promises, and it's quite cost-effective per page thanks to its reasonably priced high-yield HP P1009 toner cartridges. Since it lacks colour printing, consumers may not think of this unit as a photo printer, but it very much is. In fact, the LaserJet P1009 produces stunning quality in its black-and-white prints that is on par with any other printer in the P100x series.

Disadvantages

The biggest disadvantage to the P1009 is the sound level. It's not just noisy; it screams. While this may not be a big deal in a home office, it can be an issue if you put it in a living area in your home or are using it in a dorm room. If not maintained, this sound will worsen over time, so it's important that you clean it regularly to avoid that.
