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.
Printed setup page which yielded bright and sharp results. I generally use a new ink cartridge but decided to try Valuetoner. Have printed 54 pages of color with black and white. Sharp, no smear or faded edges on graphs.
It worked for a few weeks. My printer is telling my computer that my ink levels need to be replaced. My printer tells me that I have full levels. Unable to print anything. I have taken each cartridge out, shook them and cleaned the outside of ink. Still nothing that changed.
UPDATE: I received a replacement cartridge. So far, I have printed using color on 2-3 occasions. So far, so good! Great customer service and quick response from seller.
I was really getting tired of paying more for ink cartridges than what new printers were selling for. I decided to try the "no-name" brand cartridges. I purchase from this company before and found that my printer accepted the "off" brand and discovered that the print quality, to me, looked no different than when using the name brand cartridges. So I have ordered them again!
Worked great for the first week. The color cartridge broke after a week and was leaking. Luckily I had a tiny bit left in my old cartridge to finish printing. The black ink is still going strong after plenty of prints 2 months later.If I wasn't so lazy I should have called about the color ink. For the price I would try again. * Update Without even contacting them , The seller has Emailed an offered a refund or replacement due to my review . This is great customer service considering I never contacted them! Hopefully all goes well with the replacements. Ink is getting low so I will have an update on the ink replacements soon.Definitely a 5 stars for customer service!
UPDATE: Fantastic customer service! The seller contacted me and made arrangements to send replacement cartridges which I received very quickly. They also gave me a partial refund for my trouble. Now that's the way to win back a customer. Well done!
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I bought a set of these print cartridges a few months ago since I am working from home now. When I opened them up they had an extremely strong scent; overwhelming actually. Reminded me of the mimeograph machines back in my school days from long, long ago. Needless to say, I'm not interested in getting a high off of the scent nowadays! The cartridges were easy to install and worked pretty good; I mostly used the black one because...well, work. I've printed out maybe 50 pages using black ink and at the most 10 pages of color images. Imagine my surprise when my printer gave me an error message today that the ink needs to be replaced! I can only presume these are defective as I should have gotten way more copies out of them. I ordered another set today in hopes that this set lasts longer. If they do, I'll change my star rating accordingly.
First of all, their prices are amazing! Especially considering how expensive the printer companies make their ink, I was so thrilled with how much money I’d be saving.
I was nervous that it wouldn’t work for my printer, but read good things about their customer support and decided to try.
At first both inks worked fine! Super easy to use for the first time! After a while my printer stopped printing in color even though I still had ink left. I called Valuetoner and they immediately sent me a replacement!
It still didn’t work, but I’m honestly convinced it’s an issue with my printer and not the ink. Anyways, after over 6 months from that last replacement, they STILL helped me out a second time when I told them the color ink wasn’t working.
I’m now a loyal customer and so thankful that I can now print to my heart’s content without worrying so much about the cost of ink!
I don't use lots of ink but I still like to find the the best price I can. I haven't used to color yet and only used the black a couple of times but so far seems to work great. I expect they will work just fine and very satisfied with them. I couldn't have bought one cartridge for the price of both of these. Update: I have used these a little bit now and so far they work just as well as the overpriced ones you buy from the store. My father's printer uses the same cartridges and asked me to order him some as well. As far as I know his are working well too, he hasn't mentioned any problems with his either. When these run out I will buy more of these again.
