To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If you print with lots of color the HP 61XL cartridge is the best bet. Amazon seems to have the lowest price for this item when I need a new one. However, it still seems to cost quite a bit for the amount you receive. I always feel that tech companies overcharge for ink, but it’s better than the alternative...refilled cartridges that don’t always work and/or last a very short time.
I've received two of this particular ink cartridge in the last year that are defective and the printer won't accept them. This product comes from HP India. I emailed the company in India and they did nothing to resolve the issue of a defective product. I have ordered the HP 61XL Noir this past year and it has worked fine.
This is the first time I had a problem with amazon provided product to be low quality one even though the product was original HP color catridge. Pathetic product and I am not sure if amazon going to continue this kind of service will see if one more time if happens will write my review promptly and remove my membership. Might as well take services from others who can do.
