    Decent price, but doesn't go very far.

    Anyone who's owned an HP product and really looked into it, the ink cartridges never print as many pages as the box says. You'll also find that more often than not, one of the three colors runs out before another. But this isn't necessarily brand-specific. It's an issue with all name-brand printer inks. So it stands to reason, I can't really even take that into consideration here. Nor the fact that every brand makes their cartridges proprietary and even model-specific. -- But I digress... The print quality is good, the cartridges last about as long as expected, and the price doesn't necessarily break the bank as some do. I just wish that when they go on sale, they're discounting more than a dollar. X^)

    I have purchased HP ink at Best Buy many times before. Sometimes I go into the store and purchase it, and sometimes I order it online, and then pick it up. It is nice to have that option! The salesman that helped us was a very nice young man, a senior in high school. We chatted with him about our purchase and also about the computers on display. He was willing to take the time and show me a little look at Windows 10. You should be proud to have such a nice man as an employee; he was pleasant, and easy to converse with! That means a lot to customers.

    Usually cartridges work as expected

    This purchase was to replace defective product that would not work. Unfortunately, only way to verify defective product necessitated opening product which then prevented ability for credit or exchange. $30 plus dollars down the drain. There has to be a method to allow exchange when this happens. Don't punish all customers for deceitfully actions of a few.

    Quality copies, but I think it dries out

    This cartridge produces quality pages, but it seems to dry out. It’s the same for my black cartridge. I don’t print a lot, so it’s in my printer for a long time. Shaking it doesn’t seem to help. I don’t get anywhere near 165 color pages as the product claims. Maybe half of that? Even if I did, 165 pages divided by $25 is 6.6¢ per page, which I think is high for a home printer.

    I used to have a Canon inkjet printer, the ink for that printer was expensive and separated cartridges. Each main color was a cartridge. If I wanted to buy the whole package, it cost around $80-$90 dollars. If one cartridge was out the printer didn't work. Now, I tried the Hp, the Black and colors cartridges altogether cost me around $25.00_$30.00. I have noticed that they last longer and have a great printing quality. I like it a lot. Best Buy always have them available.

    I've had a number of different printers over the years and I always come back to HP. I've always been tempted to try the refilled cartridges you can get cheaper, but the number of bad reviews I've read keep me with the real deal HP cartridges. My printer is for home use only, so I can get a lot of mileage out of a cartridge, plus the prices and rewards programs with Best Buy make the sticker shock a little less when it comes time to replace them. HP all the way.

    Not a bad deal for the buck

    We purchased this cartridge when we bought a new printer to replace one that had stopped working. One of the things we liked was the lower cost ink then the other cartridges we examined. A downside is that this cartridge has several colors in it. You could end up having to replace it before the colors are used up if one color is printed more that the others in the cartridge. Not exactly a defect in the cartridge, more of a problem with the overall printer design.

    As a Teacher, I print tons of paperwork for my students throughout the year. However, my students are mainly fond of colorful "Center Work". It's important to keep my students engaged, and eager to work on the assignment. Therefore, I rely on making good quality and colorful work for my students to enjoy while working. HP 61 color cartridge is student approved!!
