    XL ink cartridges save you the most money

    I hav had my Brother all in one printer for a few years now and it's lasted through a lot of printing. I used to purchase the regular cartridges and kept running out of ink until I found the XL cartridges that last longer and you get more ink for your buck. I don't like the all in one cartridges since most of the time I had issues with one or two colors but I was out of luck getting it fixed since all the colors are in ONE CARTRIDGE instead of INDIVIDUAL CARTRIDGES. This way I can buy more BLACK XL CARTRIDGES than color since I print more black and white copies. Plus each XL cartridge lasts so long much longer than the regular cartridge does. I hav had many printers in my day along with many issues with ink since most of the time it's been so expensive however I am completely happy with my all in one Brother Printer and the option to purchase the XL CARTRIDGE for BLACK and all COLORS since it's cheaper in the long run.

    The cartilages do not last long. I would like to respond to the purchase at best buy. I received and e-mail for a discount price. I did purchase 2 cartridges & used a safe credit card # on line and picked it up in the store. when I got to the counter to receive my purchase I was asked for my license & credit card. I was unable to produce the credit card due to it being a safe card. The associate stated no charge would on that card and suggested I use my credit card. I expressed my fear of being charged 2x. She stated that would not occur. Guess what I was charged 2x's. I did debate the 2nd charge and it was credited back to me.

    More reasonably priced than other brand name inks

    I like brother printers for my home use, day to day printing tasks. The printers and ink cartridges are both more reasonably priced than other major brands. I chose a new brother printer after my HP multifunction printer, scanner and copier stopped working. Paid only $69.99 for this new comparable multifunction device. The quality is comparable to any good printer and the ink cartridges run longer than more expensive HP ink cartridges. I am actually glad that my HP printer stopped working as this printer and ink has already saved me over a 100 bucks in just a few months.

    Don’t buy any brother products

    before my brother printer broke down, the ink from the cartridges spilled all over my printer leaving it covered in blank ink. Needless to say i spent hours trying to clean up the mess but in the end i threw the printer out when it finally broke down. Save yourself a headache and buy a different brand. As far as quality the ink itself is below decent quality it’s really subpar. Photos don’t come out all that good when printed mediocre at best.

      Brother

      It's so awful to hear you've experienced these difficulties with the printer; I can certainly imagine how frustrating this must have been. I'm so sorry that you've had a less than seamless experience through this and I assure you this is not at all what we strive for with our customers. It's very unfortunate you've had to spend what sounds like a tremendous amount of time and effort on reaching a resolution with this.

      Despite the ink spilling inside the printer, I do hope that in the future you'll allow us the opportunity to make things right and provide you with a more seamless experience, as it should have been from the get-go. If you ever need to reach out to us, please don't hesitate: https://www.brother-usa.com/brother-support

    When you need ink right away...

    So I was in the process of printing several maps to use later that day when my printer informed me I was nearly out of ink in all colors. I had to get these maps completed so I took a trip to Best Buy after checking online to ensure they had it in stock. I picked them up right away and once back home I was printing again in minutes. The quality of the print and the color accuracy is important to me, these cartridges deliver every time. From a cost standpoint the price per print is less than most but still expensive on the high quality print settings.

    I purchased this for a MFC-J875DW printer. It works excellently. I still haven't counted to see if I can actually get 600 pages out of it, but I do find the amount I can get to be acceptable. The cartridge is sealed well, so I haven't seen any leaking or anything like that. This is a good think considering where/how the product is stored or is sitting in the printer. As most people probably already know, use Draft or Fast Print to save ink. That will help in getting the most out of your ink cartridge.

    I thought I would just go home, pop this into my printer, and that'd be the end of it. Just print some pictures to hang on our walls, no big deal. Well by golly gee, imagine my surprise when I printed some pictures off and this magical ink brought them to life! And I don't mean moving pictures like boring old Harry Potter, everything was popping out of the page and in my house! Only con is that my computer wigged out, printed 100 copies of my dog, so now I've gotta figure out what to do with 101 Dalmatians.

    I always purchase my Brother Ink Cartridges with the XL version like 103BK XL because it gives you more ink than the standard cartridge. Also Brother Ink Cartridges are always at least 15% off then other retailers. Then if your a Reawds Member then you get reward points too. I'm usually able to get my rewards points then get my coupon and be able to save in my next purchase of Brother Ink Cartridges. I use a lot of ink being a college student and then having a son how is also in college so we save lots.

    My Brother all-in-one calls for this and only this cartridge. I've had nothing but bad experiences with "compatible" ink cartridges in the past, and will never buy them again. I'm exceptionally pleased with these genuine Brother ink cartridges, and even squeezed more than 300 pages out of the standard-yield cartridge that came with the printer by always printing/copying my black-only pages in grayscale - there's no compromise whatsoever in the readability - more ink simply isn't needed.

    I use this printer cartridge with a Brother MFC-J875 printer. I have not been disappointed with this item. I haven't counted the 600 pages it claims to be able to do, but it has done a large number before I needed to change it. What I do not know is if the 600 is using normal print or fast print. I use fast print, as the print quality is still good, and gets the page out quickly. Good print quality with fast print is a good point for this cartridge. All in all, I do recommend this cartridge.

    Printer itself has high ink usage

    What can you say about ink? Get readable documents I guess which I do. Biggest problem is the automatic cleaning that is programmed into the printer is set to run even though I do not print anything and that cleaning wastes so much ink I have to replace cartridges more often then I have had to do for any other printers I have owned. No way have I ever been able to print the number of pages that the ink cartridge is advertised to print. Disappointed I ever bought the printer.

    I bought a Brother printer a while back because my HP was going through ink way too fast. I always get the high yield cartridges and the brother ones last a reasonable amount of time. The printers are also less trouble than other brands with less bloatware. I first bought a Brother printer for my home office. I liked that so much that I bought another one for my work office. I liked that one so much I bought another one for my wife. Great products. Highly recommended!

    i just reviewed the color ink & my issues with the brother printer. although some black ink has remained after brother guided me through two cleaning cycles, it can't print in black if the colored ink cartridges don't all have ink. it's not right that black ink alone can't print anything. so, i can't rate the ink. sorry.

    This product is a lower cost product, but it still produces great results. I think that the ink will save me a lot of money over time. The only gripe I have is the printer itself. I could never get the first printer to sing up to my Apple computer , even though it said it would. I took it back to store, lost my insurance cost in order to get the current printer. it also, will not connect by bluetooth . I just connected by haywire instead of taking it back.

    I was skeptical cause it was on sale for $50 and since I was in need of a fax for work I was pretty specific on what I was going o buy. I wanted a dial pad so I could fax without the use of a computer and this one has it. I was also impressed it could print borderless pictures on 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Being in the printing business lets jus say this lil machine has alot to offer without the high price of the machine or the ink. I am actually going to pick one up for home.

    I wanted to try the cartridges that you can fill them up. Bad choice I made. The quality of printing is not bad but at the same time, it is not like with the original cartridge. Must be the quality of the ink. materials. As well, I saw ink inside my printer. This never never happened with an original. No more filling cartridges. And always purchase the XL version. Brother ink always last but the XL version durability is insane.

    I know there are knock off ink products available and even refurbished cartridges, but I have found that a printer lasts longer if I use the brand name products only. So I was very happy to find this at a very very reasonable price. My only gltch in the sale was calling customer service to get the expiration date prior to purchase and the person on the phone could not find the date. Took a chance anyway and am very happy with my purchase!

    Bought this cartridge online along with the three color cartridge box. Like the three cartridges I bought the black cartridge was priced lower than what I could have got in any store. I try to keep at least one of each cartridge on the shelf so that I will have it when needed. Since I still have enough black ink in my printer I have not installed it yet, but I will assume that it will perform properly since it was designed for my printer.

    I've used various makes of printers over the years and like the rest of them, this ink seems to go too quickly and cost too much. Still it's my favorite because unlike the other printers, this Brother machine has operated trouble free and the ink is the easiest to install of all the ones I've used. I won't mention any names but it's MUCH better than the nightmare printers I've had from a company whose initials are HP.
