    I've tried using generic ink cartridges and they failed miserably. The ink quality was poor and the cartridges left streaks. Additionally, the ink would run at the slightest humidity I can always count on Epson Cartridges to deliver quality ink without streaks or smudging. My experience has been that the DuraBright inks resist the humidity and even the occasional drop of water. I have confidence by using Epson Cartridges that my printer will provide many more print jobs than with any other. I have no concerns of the ink gumming up my print head or the inside of my printer. After all Epson specifically designs these print heads for use in their printers. Quality Ink, Long Lasting Image and the Epson name, everything I look for in an ink cartridge.

    Did not buy the most expensive black cartridge because the best buy assistant informed me ink will lose its quality over time. But next time will buy the most expensive black ink because it has more and when the printer primed it uses ink and buy buying the smaller cartridge I end up primeing it twice. Because need to do it every time I put in new cartridge. Found it important to match my color use If possible also because it made lines on my copiers when I tried to only add one color. Must add all colors at same time. Also learned that cleaning button uses lots of Ink so will never do that again except just before replacing cartridges so will not be wasting ink.

    My wife is a musician and we homeschool, so she does a good bit of printing during the school year. We seem to get a fair amount of printing out of these, and they are cheap enough that I haven't felt like I am being taken advantage of like the bad old days of home printing. We usually end up having to run a head cleaning if we let the printer sit idle during the summer or Christmas break, but have never had a problem reviving them with the head cleaning. I only buy Epson these days, at home and at work.

    These are great ink cartridges. We recommend them over the standard size cartridge as you cost per page is Less with the extra capacity ink cartridge. As with all Ink Jet cartridges, we wish the pricing would come down. They still seem expensive. We previously always purchased HP printer and cartridges (for last 20 years) and we have no complaints about the switch to Epson....Printers and ink cartridges are as good or even better than HP.

    I had previously purchased this product through a Club membership and I was very disappointed. I bought it there since I was already shopping for items at that warehouse club. I determined that the ink they were selling must have been old since all I had was problems once I inserted the cartridge. I decided then and there I would only buy Epson ink from Best Buy, and I have had no further problems.

    I bought this for my home office and actually I was searching for the xl cartridge so it would last longer since i usually print out stacks of papers at a time and uses up a bunch of ink. So far this one seems to be holding up pretty well despite the heavy work load I've placed on it. I bought this weeks ago and it's still going strong no streaks yet. So far so good! Thanks will be buying again!

    With just printing occasionally at home, this works perfectly for my needs. I like that I can replace just the color that I need - not an all in one cartridge. Cheaper this way. Not very long lasting for lots of printing, but that is usual for smaller printers. Average cost compared to competitors. This is just the regular black thin cartridge - not the extra high capacity that is bigger.

    misleading

    Nowhere does it tell you that the "High Capacity" ink cartridge is NOT the real high capacity in cartridge. Nor does it tell you how much ink is in the cartridge. I went to a second source and purchased a "Extra High Capacity" ink cartridge for almost the same price.

    You can be confident that this cartridge will work as advertised. It's easy to change with no fear of getting your hands dirty. And once it's changed, you can go about your business secure in the knowledge that your printer will work when you need it.

    I've been buying ink cartridges for my printer for years. I think that someone figured out a great way to make lots of profits from ink. They give us the printers for practically nothing, then we really start to pay for the machine when the ink runs out. I love my Epson printer, it does great work, but the cost to keep the ink levels high is really starting to annoy me.

    I have been with other printers from hp and dell but the Epson makes a great difference is super easy to set up and the ink last very good. The convenience of having ink in two sizes is great I am not a big printer so I usually buy the small package but when my son is in school he uses the printer way more so the xl size gets the job done for us.

    I was wondering if BestBuy means to bring the individual color cartridges in the future. I know Office Max does. It would be better because I would buy only the color I need instead of having to purchase the whole package and leave the two that I won't use somewhere and risking them to dry before I can need them.

    I print no more than 1,000 copies at home per year and have to replace the black Epson - DURABrite Ink Cartridge about four times annually. My remote location does not allow for purchasing this particular size and brand. Best Buy delivers straight to my door within a few days and it costs less than the local drug store with it's limited selection.

    I have an Epson WorkForce 845 and tried the cheaper dime-a-dozen replacement carts a while back. Just too many ink quality problems and false "ink low" messages. No problems with using the Mfr's brand name ink. Always crisp blacks and tight characters on even photocopy paper. Excellent capacity, too. Would not substitute again.

    I have used the Epson High-Yield Ink Cartridge since I bought my printer several years ago. It truly is the best cartridge for the money. I am always pleased at the number of pages I can print. I tried another brand and may have messed up my printer. Whatever happens, if I buy another Epson, I will buy their cartridges.

    The ink cartridge installs and works as expected. It is a solid black print without any smudges. The cartridge seems to provide a reasonable amount of printing for various things including text and graphics. I would recommend this product but point out the price (although less than some other printer brands) could be lower.

    After a messy situation with a generic ink cartridge years ago, I've only used manufacturer's ink since. The EPSON High-Capacity cartridges always go in clean, last longer than expected, and never fail. I'd recommend this cartridge on it's own, and the high-capacity multi-pack for any of EPSON's printers.

    My coworker uses an Epson printer/scanner/fax and goes through quite a few ink cartridges. This was less expensive than ordering from Epson on line on sale or from the office supply store. I am always looking to save money anywhere I can. Best Buy seems to be really hitting the mark lately!

    Anytime that you can get a high-capacity inkjet refill you should do so, and the Epson DURABrite Ink Cartridge Black Ink Cartridge is no exception to that rule (as long as it fits your printer, of course!). Would be nicer if inkjet ink refills were a little less expensive, but still... not too shabby.
