I was tired of buying miniature ink cartridges, and a friend recommended CityInkExpress. Not sure of what I needed I phoned for advice and was impressed with the knowledge of the lady I talked to, who knew all of the makes and models in detail. She recommended the Brother DCP T510W with internal ink storage.


I have now installed it (very easy instructions) and it is performing brilliantly in b/w and colour. I was previously thinking of a laser printer, but this is every bit as good.

I am very happy with my choice and with CityInkExpress' advice.

Today we have a fantastic review from Geoff for his CISS. If you'd like to be entered in our monthly prize draw, and receive a discount on all dye and pigment ink purchases, send your review to reviews@cityinkexpress.co.uk.


I purchased the continuous ink system for my Epson 1500w after a recommendation and I am so pleased I did, not only was it very easy to install but the ink quality is superb and as a professional photographer this was important to me.


I had a few questions to ask when starting up and the customer service I received was faultless, thank you Louise. I also added an overflow ink tank which again was so easy and worked straight away.


I personally cannot recommend this system enough it is brilliant.

Owning a laser printer can be a pretty expensive affair indeed. After the initial cost of your all-singing, all-dancing printer you then need to keep it fulled with toner. Toner cartridges can be notoriously expensive, but of course here at City Ink Express we offer an exquisite range of cheap toner cartridges for all of the main printer manufacturers.


To save you even more money as well as genuine manufacturer toner cartridges, we also offer high-quality alternative compatible toner options for the majority of printer models. Simply head to our cheap toner cartridges page, select your printer manufacturer and model type to see the variety of toner options available for your printer - you're bound to find something to suit your budgetary requirements.


The problem doesn't end there, however. Of course, a toner cartridge only has a limited lifespan, and if your toner runs out you'll need to quickly replace it in order to continue your printing. Naturally, the more you use your printer the quicker your toner will run out, but our team at City Ink Express regularly get asked the question 'how long does a toner cartridge last?'.


The answer depends on a three main factors! The first of which, how often you are using your printer, we have already covered. Here are the other factors you need to consider when contemplating the longevity of your toner cartridges:


1. What kind of printing are you doing?

 If you're regularly printing a variety of high quality photos then you're going to be using a lot more toner than someone who regularly prints word documents or e-mails, for example. 


2. How well are you caring for your toner cartridge?

When you install your toner cartridge you should always let the toner cartridge run its complete cleaning course and print a tester page to ensure the nozzles are unblocked and the toner is flowing correctly. Regularly scheduling cleaning courses for your toner cartridges will ensure the cartridge is working to its best potential and the toner is fully flowing, maximising the use of your toner cartridge. 


If you feel that laser printers utilising toner cartridges will be a fairly expensive option for you considering the nature of your printing needs, perhaps you should consider a Continuous Ink Supply System (CISS). We have a variety of CISS printer bundles which are exceptional quality printers already fitted with CISS systems ready to kick start your printing immediately!
