    Its cheaper or equal at same same in best buy stores. If your close do your self a favor put your browser to sleep and pick it up at a best buy store youll get it right away. The only way to even have this cheaper is ebaying lets say shady looking offers. And if you want the same price online youll need a subscription to that online store you know just for same price? No. This also has a return policy- Ok as for the ink. Like most ink jets dont get ahead of your self buy both color and black and if your not doing copies and instead doing photos just do 4x6 prints only when you first install and watch your ink levels so you dont blow your supply before something important. Solid BTW after tax it cost me 14 bucks and I used the return policy to exchange for a better one. Mines had a defect. Solid. Thanks best buy!

    This cartridge in keeping with the entire Epson line. It is easy to use and performs great. 4/5 stars because I prefer the high capacity cartridges over the regular. They are a better dollar value. In general I do not like the latest Epson printers as they all stop printing when any color runs out. Very frustrating when you have deadlines to meet. The dual black cartridges do you no good because when either one runs out you have to add the replacement before it will continue printing. Very poorly thought out Epson!

    I like to keep a spare black printer cartridge on hand for my Epson all-in-one printer, copier, and fax. As it is a name-brand cartridge, I have no complaints. You just need to follow the directions on the package when you replace the old one with the new one. It was worth ordering on line because I received a discount and free shipping. At the cost of gas these days, I take advantage of free shipping when I can.

    The ink lasts a fairly long time and the quality is good. The only problem I have is that if I don't print at least once a week I have to clean the nozzles, which wastes the ink more when it resets and then prints the text copy. This is the brand my printer works best with, so I stick with it. Overall good cartridge quality.

    I have had this Epson Stylus NX420 for more than six years and it still has great print quality. I only use it with my personal Mac Book and print items I need rather frequently. The cartridges are easy to replace. It would be nice if the ink cartridges were refillable but I will leave that for my next Epson Printer purchase

    Epson 125 Black Ink Cartridges Last a Long Time

    You can definitely tell the difference between 124 & 125 cartridges therefore I like to buy 124 color cartridges & 125 black cartridges as I do mostly B&W printing. Never have to clean the printer head with Epson cartridges. I have owned my printer for several years & only had to clean the printer head once in all that time consistently using Epson ink cartridges. Price is decent for how long the 125 cartridge lasts.

    I would not purchase anything but authentic Epson ink cartridges, because I've seen reviews where refills or knockoff brands have damaged printers. I wish the cartridges would last longer though. It seems like they have to be changed pretty quickly, but I was happy to get a good price at Best Buy, and they will price match too, though I think they usually have the lowest price around!

    Good ink cartridges. They work well and provide uniform color. Note there are several sizes. Make sure you check which works with your printer. The XL size only fits the newer models of printers with the same look on the outside.

    New Design?

    They have altered the way they make the connectors for these and now they don't want to grab and snap in like the old ones. It make installing them a bit more pressure intensive, but that isn't the store's fault. Anyway, they do go in and work; I just don't like having to practically smash the cartridge tray to get one of these replaced. Price is competitive.

    Great Black Ink

    This ink is for my EPSON 520 inkjet printer. Great black ink on printouts. Easy to replace and install new ink cartridges. Epson has a calibration feature to run after installing new ink. Only grip is that they start carrying the 2pk version since this particular printer uses 2 black cartridges. Give it 4 stars for value, quality and price!

    I have been purchasing this ink for years for use in my Workforce 325. It's very reliable and has a nice strong black color when printing, although I have never used it for photo printing. I have never had a bad cartridge. Prep and install are super simple. My cartridge usually lasts me six months which is a really decent time for an ink cartridge to last.

    I am very happy with Epson products. I've been using them for years. My only issue with this product is that the ink tends to run out quite often. There is a larger container of this color, which helps; but Epson printers seem to have always been quick usage of ink type of printers. Nonetheless a good quality of product.

    No problems with the Epson 125 black ink cartridge

    I have been using the Epson 125 ink cartridges for several years. I have not had any difficulties with them unless the printer is not used for a very long period of time, which happens in most circumstances. If there is an ink-related problem, I merely put the printer through the normal cycles.

    Obviously this cartridge works and isn't any more special than other brands. I do, however, like that it seems to last awhile. Granting I don't print often, I still like the idea that I don't have to keep buying cartridges all the time.

    Not perfect (nothing really is), but very good

    These ink cartridges are very convenient, especially since they are available in individual colors. Once you get accustomed to the steps involved in changing these cartridges in your printer, it becomes nearly instinctive to do so. And the truly important part: the print quality is quite good, as one would expect.

    As long as you use the printer weekly it won't dry out. I found if I don't print anything for a few weeks it starts to dry and get streaky and I have to run the head cleaner which tends to use up extra ink. Overall works as expected, and I will continue to purchase.

    Since my Epson Printer requires only Epson print cartridges, I know I can get what I need at Best Buy! The cartridge that I always purchase is the standard (125) but this time I had hoped to pick up the larger size, to last longer. Unfortunately, the store was out. Maybe next time!

    Epson printing inks are good quality, but they make you pay exorbitantly for small amounts that don't last very long. Maybe all inkjet s are like this? I plan on switching brands once this printer wears out, and hopefully invest in a system where the ink price is easier on the pocketbook.

    Just ink, works well and easy to install

    It is just an ink cartridge specific to the printer and works well while easy to install though many steps with the printer's requirement. Only issue is that it is sold in single cartridges and not in a pair (as printer uses 2), which should be cheaper than 2 single purchases.
