Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was recently given a HP printer.Now I need ink.Looking around at prices I see that the ink cartridges are "chipped" in some way to prevent using copied cartridges I imagine.
    So if I buy cheap copies that claim to be chipped and ready to go,will this block/damage the printer in anyway?
    Ta.
     
  2. I've been using clones in my HP all in one for years now with no problem.

  3. I've had mixed outcomes with this from amazon purchases although the tescos cheapies seem to do the trick.

    I find it incomprehensible that more often than not its cheaper to buy an entire new printer than just replacing the ink!

    That's with Epson printers.

  5. I've been using non-OEM chipped carts in my Canon MX882 - work perfectly for docs and photos ...
