      Excellent service, delivered the next day and saved the company a lot of money by not ordering direct from Kyocera. Cartridges work as good as original Kyocera ones. Would recommend them for excellent prompt service and ease of ordering.

    • 3-year warranty
      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.

      Web site very user friendly. For first time users it is very easy to find what you need to order and if you need to re-order a similar toner or ink cartridge at a later date it only takes a couple of minutes. Although I always obtain 3 quotes from various suppliers I always end up placing the order with Cartridgesave as their prices are the best on the market. Goods always arrive the next day as advertised. Installation and print quality has never been an issue even with compatible toners/inks. I have recommended Cartridgesave to several of my friends and colleagues.

    I need your 3050 Color Toner

    Dear Nasser,

    Thank you for your message.

    Can you please confirm if the printer you have is the Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci?

    If so, this takes 3 separate colour cartridges. Is it a particular colour you require?

Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci Printer Review

Expert review of the Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci printer

Our Verdict:

This versatile and high-performance multifunction printer is a workhorse for larger workgroups. The Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci colour multifunction printer is praised for advanced finishing options, superb imaging, and versatile configurations, which make it ideal for improving productivity in the office. It is affordable to operate the Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci laser printer, too, but the expensive purchase price could be a turn-off when some of the important features are optional.

Design

Its industrial design makes the Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci sturdy, highly reliable, and very functional, yet it may require more installation space because of the wide and bulky frame. It may be larger sideways when optional facilities are installed. The TASKalfa 3050ci printer features a user-friendly control panel with a large colour display screen on the right-hand side, adjacent to the flatbed scanner on top. It boasts three standard paper trays and a document box. It prints using the signature KYOCERA laser colour HyPAS solution platform and runs on 2048MB of RAM with a 160GB hard disk drive.

Advantages

The Kyocera 3050ci colour laser printer delivers fast output (up to 30ppm in both colour and monochrome), and print outs looks great because of the advanced colour technology system and the versatile resolution (maximum of 9600x600dpi). There is super 3G-compatible fax with a 33.6Kbps modem. Secure network printing is possible in the Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci. Up to seven different media types are supported by the Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci colour multifunctional, including banner-sized paper. Two-sided printing is standard. This printer can use cost-effective Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci toner cartridges that print up to 25,000 pages in black or 15,000 pages per colour.

Disadvantages

Duplex scanning is optional for the Kyocera 3050ci TASKalfa laser printer as well as features like dual fax, EFI fiery controller, and network fax. The entire unit weighs 114Kg, which could make it difficult to transport and set-up. Another drawback is the high initial price of the Kyocera TASKalfa 3050ci MFP, and it could get more expensive with memory and unit upgrades.
