In the past I have tried compatible inks in other printers much to my regret. Since buying my Brother DCP-J125 printer I have always used the original products and after 3 years I still have very good quality print outs and I have not experienced any flooding. The cartridges are very easy to change - even for a 74 year-old! - and there is no ink residue to dirty your hands. I would certainly recommend these products to anyone.


I've used the Brother LC985 Black ink cartridge for about two years in my printer now. Installation is as simple as clicking them in. The firm gives a great service in terms of price and delivery but I haven't yet had cause to install the new cartridge. I would definitely recommend the firm for anyone with this printer.


Competitive price with lightning-fast delivery (less than 24 hours!). What more can anyone ask for?


Never had a problem with LC985 ink cartridges - installation was a breeze, and the quality has never let me down. I would also recommend Brother printers - straightforward setup, and wireless works well.
