    Hi there,

    I own a HP 970CXI colour printer.
    I basically would like to know if anyone can recommend any good places to buy cheap colour cartridges from.

    I also need to know if you can buy these cartridges from the USA.
    Would these be compatiable with UK printers? I'll be out there later this year and thought I'd pick a few up cheap if they work.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    With the dollar rate, you should be able to pick up genunie ones cheaper that you can in the UK and yes, the part numbers are the same so if your manual says you need a H12345X then when you are over there, you need to buy a H12345X.

    BUT

    You may have to pay VAT when you come back to the UK through customs and you may have to pay import duty as well so do the maths first.

    PS

    Remember that not all airline holds are heated so then affect of sub zero temps on the carts may not be good.

    Hi Lee, I buy my clone cartridges from www.choicestaitonery.com excellent prices here, and in my opinion there's no difference in ink quality between the clone and the manufactuters ink.

    Its worth a try and the postage is free and you can get money off your next purchase if you send your empty cartridges back. I hope this helps.....regards miggs
