I use Forest Hill Station to go to work, on my way back one day I noticed a new shop. I bought a cartridge for my printer, while I was in there the young chap said that I could refill it when it finishes for about half the price. Has anyone been there and got their cartridges refilled?? Are they any good??

Perry Vale, just by the junction with Stansted Road. Near the new fast food chicken place (the third new food outlet on that little stretch of Perry Vale to open up in the past few months).

Haven't been in there though, as I do my cartridge recycling by post - you have to post back the empty in the pre-paid envelope to get the new one at a cheap rate. Will check it out and compare prices.

Yep it's on Perry Vale, near the carpet store and the fast food places. The shop's painted bright yellow, you can't miss it.

I got my cartridges refilled last week, I normally pay about 30 for my HP 78, the refill cost me about 15.

I've printed a few times this week and my print outs are perfect.

I have an Epson photo top of the range and I never refilled them since my previous Epson Photo top of the range choked on refilled cartridges and never recovered completely.
Maybe, if you have a basic printer and don't expect your prints to last forever you can consider the cheap option, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that has a high performance printer and/or wants to get the most out of it.
And if anything goes wrong your guarantee doesn't protect you anymore.
