Count on affordable photo and everyday printing

Original HP supplies

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.

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.

Standard Value Packs/XL packs

HP offers a range of ink cartridges tailored to the way you print. To help you make smart choices about printing and costs, HP has created a portfolio of cartridge offerings with various price tags for you to choose from.

HP Standard Ink Cartridge
Standard cartridges
  • For everyday printing that is precise and affordable
  • Best value for moderate volumes of printing

    5.0 out of 5 stars simple set up 2 Nov 2010
    By niamhco
    Verified Purchase
    The first printer I ordered arrived damaged, however I was delighted with the customer support from Amazon on the return process. I received a replacement very quickly. The second printer works perfect, very simple to set up, would highly recommend for somebody who is looking for a low cost printer for printing off those airline tkts etc. One point as mentioned by others, when ordering this system it would be good if there was a note to state that the cable is not included with the printer. There is no way to know that in order to get your printer functioning you also need to order this separately at time of ordering.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Super printer 8 Aug 2010
    This is an excellent printer for it's price range.

    I bought mine from Argos (as there's a shop very close to me) to replace an existing Hewlett Packard printer, and I can't fault it. The print speed is excellent, and the quality of the printed page - whether pictures or text is brilliant. I use mine mainly for text as I run a small business from home. The scan function works really well - I tested it on a multi-coloured leaflet I had lying around, and except for the type of paper I used you couldn't tell the difference !

    I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a low-cost all-in-one machine.

    4.0 out of 5 stars New Printer 6 Jan 2011
    Saw the HP Deskjet 1050 on sale in local supermarket and decided to check online prices and reviews. Found the reviews on amazon and other sites very helpful, especially when pointing out that a USB was required but not included. Bought printer and USB from Amazon, it arrived quickly and was easy to set-up. Good sharp printing. Given it four stars as I've not had the printer long enough to find any problems. So far I'm very happy with this printer.

    4.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT! 6 Jan 2011
    By Eleni TOP 500 REVIEWER
    This little printer is great; it is very nice looking, practical and at a fantastic price. The set up process was easy and the instructions very simple and in multiple languages. It prints really fast and the print quality for both black & white and color is excellent. Also making copies couldn't be easier and I can even copy and scan pages from books, so I won't have to run to the copy store every few minutes.

    Sadly, it doesn't have a usb cable, which is a strange omission for HP as it won't work without it. However, reading other helpful reviews, I knew what to expect, so I bought one and now it works very well.

    The only problem with this otherwise lovely product, hence the four stars, is the fact that it is way too noisy. It makes a terrible noise when printing, so the time I can use it is limited.

    What is really great with this machine is that it is optimised for efficient energy use and it comes with a beautiful and convenient eco friendly bag for transportation.

    In total, this is a very good machine, that does exactly what it is suppose to do and being a HP product guarantees excellent quality. Highly recommended!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value 14 Dec 2010
    By Phil
    As my ageing scanner does not work with Windows 7 I needed a new device, and for 30 or so this all-in-one fits the bill. Scan and copy quality is excellent and the print colours are vibrant, although overall not quite as sharp as my Canon Pixma inkjet printer.

    Can't really complain at this price, other than it is not the most silent device in the world - the cat freaked out from 20 feet away when it started up! Not complaining about the lack of a supplied USB cable at this price, most people have one lying about anyway.

    The IT press seem to suggest using the 301XL cartridges rather than standard 301s for longer print life. These are looking pretty good at as little as 16 each on Amazon for genuine HP ones.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great value 8 Jan 2011
    Great value printer. I changed from using a Canon Pixma iP4600 because the ink was so expensive - in fact this printer including ink, was cheaper than replacing the ink in my old machine.

    The print speed is good and the print quality is very good. I use mine mainly for documents and some pictures. I have not really used the scanner as I already have one but did do a test page and it was good. But do not forget to order the usb cable - like most printers it comes without one.

    Definitely recommend this machine for price and quality.
