    Serendipitous Ink Jet cartridge purchase

    I purchased this Brother OEM replacement cartridge for a Brother MFC that I recently purchased for my daughter. The cartridge is an extra capacity replacement cartridge, i.e., 550 pages vs 250 pages, and represented a better value. Little did I know that in addition to my $5 discount reward certificate, there was an addition 15% discount for this item! Cool! A $24.95 regular price cartridge netted out at only $16 + change. This item is a FFF replacement, i.e.l Form, Fit and Function replacement for the starter cartridge that came with the MFC, so a big increase in capacity and no drop off in print quality. My daughter has been very pleased with the MFC, stating that the colors render true and the blacks render BLACK! All in all, very pleased with the purchase and will purchase it again when the time comes.

    Brother Ink

    Purchased on line and it arrived at my house the next day! That is the only reason it got a 3 star review... the 3 stars should actually be 5 for Best Buy making the transaction easy. Returned the ink because the printer itself could not 'recognize' that the cartridge was in. This was the 3rd new ink cartridge that I bought new, and opened only to have it not be 'recognised' Brothers tech support advised I buy (and waste) more ink cartridges. At $24.99 a package, thanks but no thanks! I returned the ink cartridge, which Best Buy actually took back OPENED and bought an epson printer!! Kutos to Best Buy! No more 'brother' for me!

    Researched this purchase first and I am not disappointed this printer is fast and easy to set up and wifi works flawlessly print is well defined and this printer is easy on the ink I have had HP LEXMARK AND DELL none work as well as this one scanner is awesome I use it a lot. My wife and I are music ministers at are church and she is the church secretary so this printer gets put through its paces. We love it. Just hope it holds up a long time. But for now it gets 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    I bought this Brother printer because my old HP 8450 gave out and started leaking. I looked at everything on display and I liked that this unit stated the cartridges were long lasting and....well cheap. I've had it long enough that the printer still works with Windows 10, but was made for 7 and 8. The ink lasts like the box promised and for inkjet printing, page count is as important as print quality. Unless something drastic happens, my next daily printer will be another Brother unless Epson comes out with a low priced ink. I love Epson for photo printing.

    The first ink cartridge replacement for my Brother

    The black ink cartridge was the first to require replacement, so I shopped online, and chose to pick them up at BEST BUY. The packaging is good, and the cartridge was easy to replace. My Brother is back in business, and that makes me happy! I gave it four stars, but time will tell if it should be more or less, because these are the high yield cartridges. I hope that it becomes a five star rating.

    too little ink for price

    Initially I had purchased ink thinking that it would have all the cartridge required. However after opening the box it only had color ink cartridge. When I went back to Best Buy to return them. They said that they don't take open cartridge back because there are too many cases of people returning empty cartridges. I understand the reason but I am still disappointed. Then I was required to buy the black cartridge so that I could print. Not good experience.

    INK IS INK?? THINK NOT!!

    I learned a lesson with my last printer, not a Brother. Never purchase ink that is not manufactured for your particular printer. It is so easy to go to Best Buy on line and just duplicate your last ink order. I have excellent color quality with using Brother Ink. Not one thing I could possibly say against it. Definitely would recommend this ink to Brother owners, without hesitation. And always make sure you have all colors on hand..ALL THE TIME.

    Brother - Lc203bk Xl High-yield Ink Cartridge - Bl

    The LC203 Brother ink cartridges are easy to replace. I like that each individual cartridge is double sealed very well. The outside plastic is vacuum sealed. Then inside they are sealed at the actual connection point with another seal. I also like that the inside seal can be put back on when you remove the cartridges after use. That way I don't have to worry about ink getting all over anything else while waiting to recycle the cartridge.

    Works great once you get it to start

    These ink cartridges are great once you get them to start printing. After installation, they print very poorly or not at all. It requires several cleanings before it finally starts to print -- wasting who knows how much ink, not to mention my time! That being said, once it starts, it's great. Print quality is good; ink lasts quite awhile, and it seems to be cheaper than the last brand I had.

    Love the printer, but the ink tricks you

    I obviously have to have this for the printer, but one day it said that I was out of ink and I really needed to print my paper. I ended up taking the ink out and shaking it up a bit and re-installing it. The ink has continued to work for 3 months. I don't know if it says your out of ink so you buy more and give them more money, or if it was a fluke. I will try this again with a different cartridge to see if that's the case.

    Well I bought a new Brother printer from Best Buy which was a nice printer, scanner, and copier but I hit a rough time and I didn't use my printer for over a year and when I finally had to replace the ink cartridges. Well the new cartridges was all dried up! They was expensive so that's where I stand, so I bought a new Brother wireless laser printer and I works fine for what I need for printing!

    The best Ink so far!

    I have used several different name brand inks and Brothers is so far the best. It's quality stands on top. It works with any type of paper and dries very fast. What I love most about it is the fact that I can print more papers than what it claims I can get out of the ink cartridge. Is that good or what? This has happened to me with every ink purchase I have made and I am not about to which either.

    I like using the high yield because, obviously, it lasts longer, more economical, and fewer trips to the store or online. It works much better than having them refilled, which costs much less, but they don't work in the printer. So this works great.

    Choosing the Right Ink

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Member

    The ability to use the ink was helpful. However, make sure that you ensure the right ink is what you need since the salesman didn't. This causes the alignment to not work if the right choice is not identified prior to buying. This means that you may not get your refund on the return since the ink is one of those consumables that you cannot return after you open it.

    Genuine Brother Black LC203

    Fair price for the Brother LC203 black ink. I had bought refilled brother cartridges, once before, from Amazon, and had a horrible experience; I will never buy refilled ink cartridges again. The stress of nearly missing an important deadline, due to printing issues, esp when the cost is small, in the big scheme of things, just not worth it for me.

    Cartridges are expensive, but my Brother color printer is a champ. With all of the Ink Jets I have owned over the years, I have found my replacement costs have been minimal. I always look for the replacements when they go on sale. Brother makes a great product.

    This is my 4th time buying this ink this year. It does not last 500 or so pages of printing. I have a pack of 500 printing paper that I haven’t gone through yet and I’ve already gone through 1 regular black cartridge and 2 XL black cartridges. Blame the printer or the ink, I don’t care. Either way, they both are bad.

    I purchased a brother printer because it was on sale and had al the features I was looking for but the ink cartridges don't last. if you read the box it says 500 pages for a large cartridge I barely made it through 250 pages before the warning light came on. I left it installed anyway to see how many actual pages I can get.

    I was looking for ink for my brother printer the other day and the service rep recommended me the more affordable ink . I was happy with the price although I did not last long. Good quality ink, very dark, my opinion it didn't last long. I know ink is very expensive and I use my printer for college purposes only.
