DON'T BUY THIS CARTRIDGE (HP 342 Colour) ONLY 5MLS OF INK!!!!!!!!!, 29 Jan 2008
By Mr. R. Austin (Cornwell, Rochie) - See all my reviews
This review is from: HP Original 342 Ink Cartridge (5 ml) (Electronics)
When Hp sell you a new printer they supply a Hp 342 (c9361ee) colour and a Hp 336 (c9362ee) black cartridge. Well these cartridges only hold 5mls of ink each which is written in really really small writing on the backs of the cartridge boxes. For higher yield cartridges the black cartridge what you really need is the Hp 337/338 which holds 11mls of ink or the extra high yield Hp 399 which holds 21mls of ink. There is a company that I use (advantage online) which stock a British premium compatible 337/338 which holds 24mls of ink and a 339 British premium compatible that hold a incredible 34mls of ink. Hp make there money out of selling you a very good printer but then sell you cartridges that have hardly any ink in them (336 & 342). Don't fall into the HP ink con trap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
