      There isn't much excitement about buying the usual ink cartridge replacement for an older HP model except to say this particular Best Buy assistant went beyond excellent, tracked all other possible outlets available in the community and professionally explained to me that the needed complimentary color cartridge could only be bought directly from HP.While that was really disappointing the young man stood tall and cool and I thanked him for being a true asset within the Best Buy purchasing experience. That's why I always do business with them.

      Don't buy that refill ink that is for sale. 90% of the time you'll get a cartridge that does not work and will display errors in your printer. If you go with authentic HP 56 you will not get error messages and you will get hundreds of great quality prints from one cartridge, not a few spotty prints as with the refill junk. Get only HP. You'll be happy you did. Only downside is; this ink is very expensive. But you get what you pay for. If the price point were better, I would have given 5 stars.

      OEM Product for HP Printer

      This is another (expensive) OEM product that provides quality reliable printing by the appropriate HP printer. I've tried refurbished & 3rd- party cartridges with mixed, but often unreliable outcomes, so I stick with OEM, even though it's at a premium price. If I were doing a lot more printing I might look at alternatives, but these seem to work better when printing frequency is intermittent & low volume.

      Just an overpriced Black Ink from HP

      If you have an older printer that takes Ink 56 from HP, this will do. However, it is severely overpriced compared to generic brands for this Ink number. The problem with generic brands is that the HP printer often does not recognize them for reasons I'm not sure such as does HP try to monopolize their own market forcing you to buy their cartridge only?

      HP 56 - Good Price and Trustworthy at Best Buy

      This is the ink that works in my printer. I've had my printer for about 10 years and both the basic HP Scanner/Copier/Printer works well and I'm glad they still sell this ink for it. I shopped around on the internet for better prices and while I found some that may have been cheaper, I don't trust that they weren't re-filled and I have heard of re-fill horror stories. I buy safe.. I buy new.. from Best Buy. :-)

      Purchase the black ink cartridge at Best Buy after searching online at Walmart, Office Max. Saw that Best Buy was on sale. Had my HP ink jet multi purpose printer since 2003. Can you believe it still works. I see the HP 56 still available but kind of expensive but Best Buy was the cheapest. Maybe some day I will purchase a new printer.

      HP 56 Black

      This ink cartridge is recommended for specific HP printers. I have an HP officejet multifunctional and they work well when I print with them regularly. If I don't use them often, then the cartridge seems to have difficulty dispensing ink properly (Dunno if the cartridge or the printer is to blame for this issue). This is an easy fix by wiping the cartridge with a cloth and a bit of water or alcohol.

      Works perfectly fine in my HP PSC2110V printer. Results are as expected, which is easy installation and excellent print quality. 1 star taken away because like most ink cartridges, these things are expensive. You can almost buy a brand new low-end printer for the price of these ink cartridges. But nonwithstanding cost, it's an excellent ink cartridge.
