Manufacturer's Description

Original HP ink and toner cartridges are precisely formulated to work in harmony with HP papers and your HP printer to deliver stunning results.

What is HP ink?
Ink is much more than just coloured water; the unique, hi-tech formula for HP ink is designed to work with all the mechanical parts of the print cartridge, and the printer itself, to deliver high quality results across a wide range of papers, in a variety of environmental conditions.

More than just coloured water HP inks are
full of features. View more detail

Why Original HP Inks?
It takes up to three years to develop new inks, so a huge amount of work goes into producing Original HP Inks, from the selection of superior ingredients to precision engineering of both the chemical formula of the ink and the high-performance ink cartridge components.

The print cartridge itself is the product of years of research and development and is much more than just an ink tank. The integrated print head on an HP cartridge includes an intelligent circuit that controls the hundreds of nozzles, each finer than a human hair, which deliver the ink onto the page. Each drop of ink is fired onto the page on the back of a tiny vapour blast of heat 7 times the intensity of the sun that lasts for just two millionths of a second; this energy blast exposes the ink drop to forces up to one million G’s. Some of the latest Original HP ink cartridges can deliver in excess of 29 million drops per second.

In many of HP’s home printers, over 50% of the printing technology is contained within the cartridge itself; which means every time you replace your Original HP Ink Cartridge you are installing a brand new print engine. Original HP Inks are developed in conjunction with HP papers to ensure maximum compatibility and performance. The result is the perfect balance of colour, permanence and reliability.

HP Ink Technology: pigment black and dye-based colour

Pigment Ink

HP uses pigment-based inks to deliver laser-sharp text, a strong black with superior fade and water-resistance on a variety of papers. Pigment inks are made up of relatively large molecules that are non-water soluble and sit on the surface of the paper. As a result, the ink is not absorbed by the paper and there is less bleed; resulting in cleaner edges and more efficient ink use.

Dye-based Ink

HP uses dye-based inks to deliver a broad spectrum of stunning, long-lasting colours. Dye-based inks are water soluble and are essential when intensity and range of colour is important. Used with high-gloss papers, dye-based inks provide a uniform finish with bright, vibrant colour reproduction and are perfect for photo printing and colour documents.

Original HP Inks vs. Refills
Given the degree of sophistication that goes into an Original HP Ink cartridge, it’s easy to see why refilled, second hand cartridges often suffer by comparison*. Common problems include a narrower colour range, poor fade resistance, lower page yield, banding, bleed and leakage.

Use of refilled ink cartridges can damage your printer, affecting the quality of your prints. If your printer is damaged as a result of using modified or refilled cartridges, it’s not covered by the HP warranty. Research has shown that one in five refilled cartridges fail prematurely or are dead on arrival*. For the best, long lasting results HP always recommends you use Original HP inks and paper.

Get More with HP
Page yield is an important measure of value for money when buying ink cartridges. Original HP ink cartridges produce up to 34%* more pages than compatible alternatives.

Remember, with Original HP Inks you’re not just getting value for money; you’re buying peace of mind.

HP Planet Partner Programme
HP offers a free cartridge recycling programme across 27 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. To date, HP has recycled over 90 million kilos of ink and toner cartridges – that’s the equivalent of over 200 jumbo jets – and not one of them has ended up in landfill.

Best Choice Portfolio

HP offers a range of ink cartridges tailored to the way you print. To make things easier for you we’ve colour coded the packaging.

HP Standard Ink Cartridge The standard blue ink cartridge is ideal for people who print low to moderate volumes, such as the occasional document, web page and photo.






HP XL Ink Cartridge The green XL cartridge is designed for people who print higher volumes. The page yield on an XL cartridge is up to five times that of the standard blue pack**






HP Speciality Ink Cartridge The red cartridges contain speciality inks, intended for advanced photo printing. Designed to work with high-quality HP photo papers they produce extra rich colours, ideal for photo printing, brochures and presentations.





** Further information on page yields for specific cartridges can be found on the HP website.

HP Photo Paper
HP is the number one selling brand of inkjet photo paper*** and leads the world in image quality and fade resistance of inkjet photo prints. Original HP Inks and paper are specifically designed to work with HP printers to produce the best results for both home and office use.

HP Photo Paper, unlike plain paper, comprises multiple layers that are designed to deliver outstanding photo print quality, exceptional fade resistance, water-fastness and a vibrant range of colours. Plain paper, by contrast, consists of unsorted layers of cellulose and filler that expend when ink enters the paper and leads to “cockling” or uneven paper, affecting the quality of your photo prints.

HP Everyday Paper

HP offers a wide range of quality A4 papers, for use with either laser or inkjet printers, which are designed to deliver outstanding print results, every time. Most of the range comes with HP ColorLok Technology as standard. Engineered to dry up to three times faster than ordinary paper, HP ColorLok technology means you can handle your prints faster, with less risk of smearing.

Not only do your prints dry faster, but thanks to the special paper formula, they also look better. Blacks will look bolder and sharper and colours will appear more uniform and vibrant.

When HP sell you a new printer (D1660) they only give you starter cartridges with it which hold a very small amount of ink in them Hp 300 black 4ml and the Hp 300 6ml colour cartridges. I was using about 3 black and 2 colours cartridge per month and it was costing me a small fortune. I later found out that Hp do a higher yield versions of the 300 cartridges which cost only a few pounds more but hold far more ink in them than the starter cartridges which I was using before. What you need is a HP 300XL on the black which hold 12mls of ink rather than the 4mls of ink that is in the 300 starter black cartridge and for the colour you should be using the HP 300XL colour cartridge which holds 11mls of ink rather than the 6ml HP choose to put in the starter. I can even go one better, I now use a company called advantage online who stock the Hp originals plus do a British premium compatible 300XL bk and 300XL colour cartridges which hold 18mls black and 18mls colour. I have used them a couple of times so far and have been quite impressed. I hope you don't fall into the Hp trap of selling a very good printer (Deskjet D1660) at a very cheap price and then trying to charge you load of money for starter cartridges.

The product HP300 was not provided in the standard HP packaging and raises concern on my part to it being a geniune HP product or not? Also on the website when ordered it was mentioned as New Product and the picture provided is not what I have recieved. I have ordered HP cartridges in past from Amazon, but this is the first time I have recieved a cartridge without standard packaging (without the Hard cover, no HP bar code and no identification marks). I treat such a product to be a duplicate or false and hence not FIT FOR advertising. I am ready to return the item and want to claim a return.

I bought this product for one week and probably only print 50 paper with it. Then it run out of ink! I do not know this is HP's problem or Amazons. Anyway, the worst purchase experience ever to me.

Both this and the coloured one I bought at the same time were identical to, but much cheaper than, the same product available locally. They arrived within a few days and work well. No wonder shops go out of business these days.

I am a Master student and the main pourpose of using my printer is just to print a couple of tech papers to support my research. As many users, I have used enough cartridges to buy a new printer; if you add the cost of the printer itself, I would be able to get a laser one. I have to buy them now, but I recomend to use another type of printer in the future top avoid been cartridge dependant.

Bought the basic HP 300 black ink cartridge and regretted it. It ran out of ink 3 weeks later and I have now ordered the high capacity HP cartridge. Dissapointed with this product.
