Save hundreds of pounds with toner refills

Toner refill bottle £14 ex VAT
Print for a third of the price
Typically, you can expect to print for around one third of the original cartridge price. For some printers (case in point, Lexmark) you're looking at more like half the cost. Why the limitation on thrift? In a word, "killer chips". OK, that was two words, but where the printer forces the use of micro-chips: refilling costs go up. Which is why it makes sense to think about buying the most "refill friendly" laser printer - click "Best printers for refilling" link at the bottom of the page.
UK suffers scandalous prices for colour toner
"A set of new cartridges costs more than the printer did." Urban myth? Or fact of printing life?
See for yourself. Google the price of the Brother HL-3140cw laser printer. I did on 04/01/2017 and you could get it easily for less than 80 quid + VAT (from printerland.co.uk on the day I did it).
The best price I could find for all four original cartridges on the same day was £172-28 + VAT (For the TN-241 multipack).
£80 + VAT for the printer versus £172-28 + VAT for even the low capacity cartridges for it.
And there you have it: 8 out of 10 cats really do prefer their toner to cost less than their printer.
We rest the case for U Refill Toner, Mi'Lud.
You save money with the UK professionals
If you're going to refill your toner cartridge, you want to know that someone's tested that possibility first, right? Preferably several times, so all the bugs are out of it?
In short, you want success on a plate: first time. See how far we're prepared to go to give you a positive refill experience in this video of us refilling the Samsung Xpress M2022w

Hi Guys, Placed an order for one of your Samsung M2022 refill kits and a second toner refill. The order arrived really quickly!! Watched the video of how to do it. This afternoon I refilled both the 2022 and the older Samsung in about 15 minutes start to finish!!! Really really impressed with the product and service!! Bonus being I now have 2 working printers full of toner for less than half the price of a single toner and have the melting tool ready for next time it's needed :)
The world's last "unplug and pour" toner refill?
Original cartridge £45-73 ex VAT | Black refill bottle £13-50 ex VAT
See how easy it can be to hang onto to your cash by resetting and refilling the HL-L8250cdn, Brother's latest mid-range colour laser.
Refilling the L8250cdn exemplifies the "unplug and pour" refill. That's not a trivial fact from the refilling point of view. Add to it that you haven't got to fork out for any chips and you've got the current Holy Grail of toner refilling.

Just refilled yet another cartridge and I can only say your system works as well as the screwfix site which to me is a benchmark for user friendly and customer focused service. It took no time at all to identify my printer and order what I needed.

I would just like to thank you for your excellent product and step-by-step instructions. I bought a kit from you for my Brother HL-3150CDW some time ago. I have installed the reset wheels and reset all of the cartridges over time and only now have had to do a melt-and-pour. It worked perfectly and I am a happy man.

You guys are amazing! Just refilled my printer with the toner you sent last week. A little bit of mess but the test prints are great! I am convinced the toner you provided is better than the stuff Brother ship! Thanks for saving me a tonne of money, all the best for 2016!

A couple of days ago, I received a refill for my Brother HL2035. This, less than 24 hours after I'd ordered it. After a few minutes work my printer was back in business. Not only that but the refill came with a thoroughly enjoyable 'newsletter', which, in itself, was almost worth the price of the toner. In an age of impersonal, behemoth firms, dealing with one like yours is a delight. All power to your elbow - or whatever bit you typically use...

Cor blimey! Guys & girls, u(refilltoner) rock. Tiz the plain and simple truth that this [Toner Refill Kit Black (everything you need) £19.50 BR3150KITB] for my Brother HL-3170cdw is undoubtedly the best thing since sliced bread! And with humour too! Anyways, easy order, fast international delivery (do send out a shipping notice will you, there's a darling) and WHAMMO!, the package's on your doorstep. All included, super-easy installation of yer famous reset cogg thanks to excellent paper and youtube instructions and you're away with the mixer, of bob's your uncle, or whatever you limeys call succes. For sure, 'tis but a three minute operation to do the lot and lo and behold, after some whirring and clicking the display beams [Ready *] at you! Fantastic. I'd advise everyone to stop squirming (for by golly, you're about to take a screwdriver to the inside your sparkling new laser printer!), order the works, save the planet and enjoy the fruits of your boldness for not giving in to the unnecessary spending of a truckload of your hard-earned cash on new toner cartridges!
Greetings from a sunny North Sea Coast (that'll be The Netherlands)
Proof, if proof were needed, that I don't make these testimonials up. Although I have now retained Jurgen's services for
all future "unsolicited" testimonials. P.S. You don't actually have to put a screwdriver inside your new laser printer: that
particular part of your testimonial was flirting with silliness, Jurgen old boy!

I just that I'd write and thank you for producing such a useful product. Tonight I used it for it first time and I was amazed at how easy it was to cut a hole and refill the cartridge. I think the longest time was waiting for the hole cutter to heat up. Once again many thanks.
