Rated 5 out of 5 by TX Susan from Dependable Original HP ink Cartridges I've tried ink cartridges that have been refurbished and refilled, but they don't last long and the quality isn't too good. There's nothing like a brand-new HP cartridge! They perform well in my 25-year old HP 5150 printer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sherkahn from New cartridge didn’t work. Three to five day delivery took five days. That was kinda expected. The cartridge did not work. Followed all the cleaning advice. Did all the steps. Kept getting “ There is a fault with one or more of your cartridges “ error screens. Looking at the cartridge. I noticed that the circuitry was not as, um…substantial as the previous cartridge. Perhaps it was a cost-cutting move in manufacturing. No matter. It didn’t work. Sent it back for a replacement. Not expecting anything better, but maybe it was just that particular cartridge. We’ll see….

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Not So Good HP has discontinued making/supplying the cartridge that I need for my printer. #56 which is what I ordered online was supposed to work on my 7525 printer. Will not fit and the dog ate it so I can’t even return it. Thanks for nothing

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stitching Grandma from Good Service Great shipping, and appreciate the cartridge recycle bag you sent with the new ink cartridge. The price from HP was equal to what I used to pay locally, but this style cartridge is getting hard to find!
