The cartridges are the original HP ones and they come in original packaging. Price I paid for these was very competitive. Delivery was by royal mail and they arrived 3 days after ordering, even though they were sent from the Channel Isles. Very happy with item and will buy from here again.

Hi Everyone, Please do not fall for the comment made by Steven about ADVANTAGE online. Its a con, which I fell for and paid £29.99 for the so called "British Premium Pack". What Steven is not telling everyone is that they are "refurbished" cartridges. The pack, I received had colour cartridge covered with bleedin' ink. I called their "premium call" number and they happily sent a new one. I started using the cartridges and within a week, the black ink cartridge went orgasmic and started smudging papers and the whole printouts become wet and covered with black ink no matter whether its a single page print or multiple, its just start from the beginning. The moment, my printer has to print more then half a page of writing, the black ink is all over it. On top of this humiliation, constant alerts by printer that you are using a fake product has made the things worst for me. This is the biggest ever con, I have encountered and suggest everyone to stick with original cartridges whether its higher yield or standard versions. Do not, I repeat, do not fall for these ADVANTAGE ONLINE cons.
Got these inks last week. The black lasted about 2 days with very little printing. One minute it was full next it was empty. Don't know if it was a duff cartridge but wont be buying from this company again.
When HP sell you a new printer (Deskjet 3050) they only give you starter cartridges with it which hold a very small amount of ink in them Hp 301 black 3ml and the Hp 301 colour 9ml cartridge. I was using about 3 black and 2 colour cartridge per month and it was costing me a small fortune. I later found out that Hp do higher yield versions of the 301 cartridges, which cost only a few pounds more but hold far more ink in them than the starter cartridge which I was using before. What you need is a HP 301XL on the black which hold 12mls of ink rather than the 3mls of ink that is in the 301 starter black cartridge and on the colour you should be using the HP 301XL colour cartridge which holds 11ml rather than the 9 that's in the 301 starter cartridge. I can even go one better, I now use a company called advantage online who stock the Hp 301XL originals plus do a British premium compatible 301XL bk and 301XL colour cartridge 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 3050) at a very cheap price and then trying to charge you load of money for starter cartridges.
This is a HP product, which I bought for my HP Deskjet 2530 printer.
The product is exactly right, but it was a bit of bother finding that this cartridge was the right one for the printer. I searched Google 3 times, and each time it came up with the 301. I had to visit a specialist print short to be sure this was a the right one.
