Providing Quality Cartridges Since 1999


What is a Laser Printer?

Laser printers are becoming a lot more common as prices decrease and the quality of output improves. Laser printers use toner (a black or coloured powder) rather than liquid inks and like photocopiers they use a xerographic printing process – more information of this can be found in our glossary section. There are several advantages of laser printers as unlike thermal printers laser printers do not require special paper. When compared with...

CD/DVD Firmware

A consistent problem that we’re having at Refresh is customers purchasing DVD discs and then returning them as being ‘faulty’ because they refuse to work correctly on their machines. Once they come back in to store we then run a couple of tests and they check out as being absolutely fine meaning that quite often a customer has just returned to us dozens of completely fine discs.The reason for the media being incorrectly identified as being...

BluRay and HD DVD

High Definition seems to be the current buzzword in the technology sector; we have had high definition ready TV’s on the market for some time now and now not only do we have a choice of one high definition playback format to choose from but two. To be honest the whole affair is very much like the old Betamax and VHS video war which repeats itself so often in the technology sector as two different formats struggle for supremacy. This war is...

DVD-R or DVD+R

We still get people coming to our trade counter on a daily basis to pick up DVD media for their machines but when asked whether they are after DVD-R or DVD+R a puzzled expression shoots across their face. It was for this reason that I thought it would be nice to recap on the different types of disc that you can buy for your DVD writer and the differences between them. The DVD-R Format The DVD-R Format was initially developed by Pioneer and is...

All about DVD media

Although I’d expect the majority of my readers to know exactly what an DVD disc is, it seems that far too many people have not taken the plunge to purchase a DVD player for their computer even though you can pick up a drive for around £40 or so. DVD technology has been around in Europe now for around 4 years and although most people have used one in order to watch a movie, many may not yet be buying and using DVD data discs for their PCs. Back...

Remanufactured Toner Cartridges

I’ve talked before about ways to get the most from your inkjet printer but now that we’ve started selling remanufactured toner cartridges on our website it seemed like a good time to recap exactly how much you could be saving by making a wise choice for your printing needs from day one. When it comes to inkjet printer cartridges a lot of people are at a loss as to what to buy or they just assume that all printers irrespective of make or model...

Recycling Cartridges for Charity

A while back I did an article about sending your empty cartridges back to a mail order company in exchange for a small cash reward. This week I’m going to talk about an even better idea which involves less effort but a better result – recycling cartridges for charity. Many printers on the market use cartridges which contain copyrighted printheads and hence they can’t have cheaper new alternative made of them so unfortunately the only way...

Compatible and Remanufactured Cartridges

As you know I cover a wide range of subjects in these blogs but from time to time I like to come back to talking about what my company does best which is of course the sale of printer cartridges. Some of my loyal customers will already know this already but we have recently set up a trade counter in Torquay Road so that as well as making orders online it is now possible for customers to come into store and collect their computer consumables...

Price of Ink Cartridges

Once again I’ll be spending this week answering a question recently sent in by one of my readers. “Just to inform you that I recently bought a #17 Black cartridge from Lexmark for my Lexmark X1160 printer from Argos in Torquay, I am very disappointed with the Lexmark brand as it seems to have lasted only a few weeks with only probably 50 x A4 printouts. Can you tell me if this is usual and what is the difference between the cartridge...

Compatible Cartridges

I thought I’d take the time this week to touch on a subject that I’ve briefly swept over in the past and as a result I’ve since received many queries about and that is the area of compatible printer cartridges. This is a product which could save many of you money on your printer running costs as there are now a fair few companies around selling these cartridges which claim to be the same quality as those produced by Epson, HP, Canon and the...
