    That is the problem with compatibles they work great until the moment you really need them to perform and then.........bwoooooffffff they leak or smear or worse bugger your printer up so it costs 10 times as much as it would if you had bought the originals which are guaranteed to refund your money and fix your printer if any damage has been caused.

    I have used compatibles from XMA and they have been very good and at a very competitive price compared to the OEM.

    Will see what Simon comes up with.

    I've found Probrand (IT Index) to give the best first-time pricing for HP OEM.

    Touch wood so far that none of our office basics cartridges has given us any grief. I believe our local supplier will compensate us for the loss of printers from bad cartridges - maybe Simon can post CPLs procedures on that for the benefit of others?

    We used to buy lasertech cartridges and found that their "own-brand" cartridges had a failure rate higher than what we were prepared to put up with (it was still low, but we expect near 0% failure, not 5-10% of cartridges leaking etc). Also, their prices where too high (at one point, we could get a HP OEM cart for the same price as LT charged for a compat)!

    We used to buy OEM carts from our local supplier until they told us about their range of compats (office basics & the inferior initiative brand) which we have bought ever since - and noone seems to be able to beat their compat prices!

    All Office Basics Branded compatibles come with a no quibble hardware and toner guarantee so if the toner damages the printer they will pay for repair or replace, this is the only reason we offer this brand of compatible

    You should use a company called QC Supplies

    Website is qcsupplies.com

    you are not going to get original hp toner cartridges cheaper from no one they are at least 50% cheaper than other suppliers.

    maybe 50% was an oversight

    But we pay 87.66 for the colour hp laserjet black cartridge hp number hp-c9730a

    And 128.29 for the other 3 HP Colour cartridges.

    £61.37 for the HP2015 high capacity 7000 page toner and £32 for the 3000 page toner.

    funny that as they charged a educational customer of mine £111.05+vat for the Hp2015 high cap and £167.10 for the C9730A

    mabye your getting a extra extra special deal,

    to be honest the prices you are quoting are well below disty cost are you sure these are HP branded and not compats

    QC supplies are a trading name for one of the big wholesalers,and have got some government contracts...I found that they could be below cost on the core items, but were absolutley hammering customers on non core products!!!
