Way back in 1999 I purchased the HP Deskjet 710C for about £60. At the time I had 2 Windows PC’s at home; one was a large tower with Windows 98SE installed and the other was a solid grey box running Windows NT 4.0

With drivers freely available from Hewlett Packard (on a CD back then) I had the 710C installed and working on both PC’s.

Compared to today’s ink jet printers it would be considered quite slow and not particularly good for printing colour photos. It had no USB connection, no PostScript support and only 512KB of memory; BUT it was a great “work horse” of a printer….. it gave me many years of faithful service and never suffered from paper jams or streaky printing issues etc.

The HP 710C Deskjet Colour Printer

If I still had it today I would be using recycled ink cartridges in it instead of original HP ink cartridges. You can still get the original ink cartridges, if required and we sell them, its just that there is a cheaper alternative. You would still be getting the same great quality – but at a lower cost per page!

If you still have one of these HP Deskjet Colour printers at home, or in the corner of the office, have you considered using a cheaper ink cartridge?

The HP 710C Deskjet takes 2 ink cartridges, one for the black (H45) and one for the colour (H23). I would highly recommend using a quality alternative like the ones produced by the British firm Jet Tec.

All Jet Tec H45 and H23 ink cartridges are recycled (also known as remanufactured) in the UK and filled using a high quality ink, so generating a low carbon footprint when compared against creating a new cartridge.

You can order these recycled ink cartridges here:
