Product Description

We have made every effort to clearly identify the products on our website and in any promotional material, but Select Printers  doesn’t accept liability for products that are accidentally described incorrectly.

The following terms are to be found on our site:

Use of the word ‘Original’or OEM in the product description or elsewhere in the webshop indicates that the product described therein has been produced by the original printer manufacturer and purchased by Select Printers for re-sale.

Use of the words Own Brand in the product description or elsewhere in the webshop indicates that the product described therein has been produced by a third-party manufacturer that are completely new products that are compatible with and can replace original products.

Use of the word Refill/ Remanufactured in the product description or elsewhere in the Webshop indicates that the Cartridge is a remanufactured cartridge where the original product has been cleaned, re-conditioned and refilled.

Page Yield Very many of the product descriptions contain the phrases ‘page yield’, ‘product capacity’ or ‘capacity of’. The page yields mentioned in these descriptions are based on the industry standard of 5% coverage (i.e. 5% of the area of the page has been printed on), in accordance with ISO/IEC 19752 testing methodology. This is how printer manufacturers describe their page yields, and we’ve continued to use this standard. Obviously if you’re printing just one line of standard-size text per page you’re very likely to exceed the stated page yield, and if you’re printing an A4-sized black box you won’t get the yield that’s mentioned in the description. Yields vary with usage and environmental conditions. Please note, these page yields are guidelines only and should not be relied upon as ‘gospel’.

e.g., see HP’s own guidelines at http://bit.ly/1gKFdtz

HP claims a yield 825 pages but then issue the following disclaimer. *Tested in HP Officejet 6700 Premium e-All-in-One. Average based on ISO/IEC 24711 or HP testing methodology and continuous printing. Actual yield varies considerably based on content of printed pages and other factors.

So in short, the advertised yield is subject to many factors, and accordingly, Select Printers disclaims responsibility for ‘originals’ that don’t print the number of pages that’s advertised in the product description, as the OEMs themselves say that the yield is only a guideline.

With this in mind you are entitled to a seven-day ‘cooling-off period’, whereby you are entitled to return your purchase to us for any reason* within seven days of receipt of same, and be refunded the price that you paid, minus the shipping charge. This safeguard applies only where the products in question are unopened, unused, undamaged, and returned to us in full saleable condition. Charges for return-shipment must be borne by the purchaser.
