Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I ordered these trying to save some money on ink. Bad idea. The two black cartridges were swimming in ink inside their bags. (Fortunately, the bags did not also leak.) I pulled one out, cleaned it up, and installed it. My printer reads it as half full.
No duh. I guess getting half the ink for half the price is reasonable, but I won't be buying off-brand ink again.
I finally needed to replace my (manufacturer brand) color cartridge with one of these remanufactured cartridges. My first print job, every picture came out green. I tried from a different computer. Same result. Put the old cartridge back in, job printed fine. So the color cartridges don't even have the right color inks in them! I wish there were a 0-star rating option.
Edit 11/21/15: Got replacement inks quickly, but had already put OEM cartridges in. Swapped inthis black today. It came out of the pack at 23% full. Will not be ordering again.
Original review: I put the color ink in, ran an alignment sheet, and printed off ~40 pages (color & b/w) just fine. I went to print another page the next day (today), and the display says, "Color Ink Invalid". Pulling the cartridge & re-inserting does not fix, neither does putting in the old one and then swapping, nor shutting the printer down and pulling the power cord. I am going to look into a return now.
Put in the black cartridge in and on my FIRST print job the dialog box pops up saying that I need to refill my black in soon. Shows as only 1/4th full! Haven't tried the color one yet, but my experience with this black one is enough for me to regret this purchase. Stick with Lexmark brand - savings aren't worth it on this item.
