    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!

    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.

    Expensive, doesn’t last long.

    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 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.

    It's ink - just too little for too much

    I purchased a new Brother inkjet because they supposedly have better ink costs - more pages printed for less cost. I bought this XL because the size I wanted Super High Yield XXL was not available at the store. (It is ridiculous that Brother has us requiring "super" size to get a good yield off of our printer ink.)

    Runs out fast

    Black ink runs out insanely fast. With these new printers, if you don't have ink available, all the colors are uesless. It only works if all ink is available. So you keep buying and mixing/matching. They all waste so fast but I suppose this is normal now.

    It's Black Ink

    This is a black ink cartridge. It seems as though the printer manufacturer's take us for a ride, charging what they want for an item we need. This is just black ink. It costs about $25 and runs out too fast. But what else can you expect?

    It may be because I don’t use them often and they dry out but it seems that I don’t get much mileage out of even the xl cartridges. Not impressed.

    I change to brother after I go tired to give money to Hewlett Packard for ink every month.I bought this xl ink to see if there was a difference and so far so good. It's been well over a month and still going.

    Only bought the brother ink product cause the ink refills seemed to be the cheapest. However it seems like I'm having to buy refills more often then before which makes no sense in the first place.

    Overall, we've been happy with our wireless printer and one cost involved is you must buy ink.... These cartridges do seem to show "low ink" very quickly, but I just continue to print anyway.

    The ink is great, but I've had it with the cost of ink. Finally ditched the ink-jet and went with laser. Best choice.

    Brother MFC-J4620DW seems to use a lot of ink.

    This is the first ink cartridge I have had to replace in my new Brother MFC-J4620DW printer. The initial cartridge seemed to run out with the first month and I only use it for personal printing.

    Affordable brand. Bought it on sale. I wish it does last a bit longer... but it could be the type of paper being used.

    This ink is good quality but a cartridge doesn't last very long. I don't print that much but the cartridge lasts only a short time.

    These ink cartridges are okay for light home use. Require more frequent replacement than those on my previous printer. A 3 star recommendation.
