    Great ink cartridges

    When my printer ran out of ink cartridges, I'm so needed to print out my documents for the next day. I'm so concerned where I'm going to get my ink cartridges for my own printer. I try to search online for the ink cartridges and finally I can buy it from the Best Buy. And they are close late for the night and it's not to bad to drive to Best Buy location where they have many location. Once I got into the store and the employees are very helpful and nice to me. I ask them for a question for wheee I can find the ink cartridges and they tell me which area I can look for. Once I found the right cartridges that I need. And I rushing to the cashier and checking out the cashier guy told me I can get extra discount if I have a membership for Best Buy. Great ! I can buy what I need and get extra discount for the ink cartridges. I have never thought that I can get extra stuffs from the Best Buy store. Thanks for the workers and their employees also the store promotions that makes it greats and convenient. After I brought the ink cartridges home and insert the cartridges into the printer, and I print out the pages I need, the blank ink cartridges was printed out nice and simple black on my documents. Thank you very much for the quality of EPSON ink cartridges.

    I purchased this printer based on the information on the printer synopsis in the store. Unfortunately it does not mention is how quickly this printer goes thru ink. Yes I know you get starter cartridges which are only enough to do the print setup/test page. However you have to purchase the regular ink cartridges in order to actually start using the printer. The cartridges are not super expensive until you factor in how much is used and how quickly you need to replace cartridges.. I print in economy mode and use a high quality paper in my printer since I need to keep what I print, so it's not absorbing large quantities of ink like cheaper paper will. My other issue is and how often it loses the wi-fi connection. I ended up having to go wired (which is disappointing since I bought it for it's wireless feature). I was having to reprogram the wireless every other time I'd turn the printer on. I had my router checked to be sure it was not losing connection, it is working properly. If you don't plan on using it very often it may be what you are looking for. I wish I'd have spent the additional $40.00 to get a better model, but I would have stayed within the brand name regardless.

    Ink Cartridge

    Best Buy offered me ponts on my Rewards account if I reviewed this product so here is my review... The item comes in a lovely cardboard box that is mildly difficult to open. The ink cartridge itself is slim and ergonomic in it's design and functions properly once you remove the little removable tab on the side of the cartridge and properly insert it into the ink cartridge receptacle in your printer. Inserting the item into your printer may or may not be difficult depending on how well your printer responds to the commands to replace the cartridge and your ability to remove the old cartridge and insert the new cartridge. As is typical for similar items, this ink cartridge is massively overpriced for what it is and for what ink actually costs.

    Excellent printing quality

    The printing quality is excellent. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 stars is that the Magenta ink cartridge depletes so much quicker than the other 2 colors (cyan/yellow) and black. Unfortunately I now have a collection of cyan/yellow cartridges building up because of getting multiple refill packs that also contain the 2 other colors along with magenta and don't come available in any other individual packaging scheme. Black can be purchased separately or in a complete 4 pack group. Need an option to get an individual color or a super sized plus version of magenta.

    First, I hate that my Epson printer forces me to buy new ink even when other ink cartridges are in the printer. I recently bought three other inks including a black cartridge and even if I selected black and white print, the printer would not print my documents until I replaced the yellow. Previously, the yellow was about 75% full and after I replaced the others, I printed just a few documents then the yellow was empty. This does not feel right to me.

    Never lasts long enough

    These cartridges must either not have much ink in them or my printer uses too much because I am always having to replace the black. It's not like I print a lot either. I have had other printers in the past (Brother, HP) and their cartridges lasted longer. And they don't even make single XL black cartridges. Yeah, I know that's how they make money on printers by selling ink cartridges again and again and again. I gave it a fair rating only because they work.

    It's works. It's ink. They never give you enough and they over charge for what you buy. It's cheaper just to buy a new printer when you need ink. And XL pack is $65.00 bucks. I saw a new Epson xp 440 on sale for $50.00 dollars. Soooooo. Get the picture? Stupid. Or you have to shell out $300.00 for the new printers that have the large tank wells. Would I recommend? Well, if you need it, you have no choice. Kinda stupid.

    Decent price for ink for an inexpensive printer

    We bought an inexpensive Epson from a big box store just to have copy capability at home. We've just recently had to replace the ink, and we found the corresponding ink cartridges at Best Buy. They're sold in 2 sizes, and strangely the black is more cost effective to buy the bigger of the 2, the color cartridge seems to have no advantage to buying the bigger, in fact I think is more expensive per copy output than if you bought a couple of the smaller ones.

    I've been using my Epson printer for two years with no problems. I wish the discount would include single ink cartridge purchases as well. I missed the environmental drop-off for electronics waste pickup for my old printers, but plan to make it next year. I got this printer at a good price. Works great every time!

    I have the Epson WF-2650 and I've honestly hated it from day one. I've literally gone thru two of the 220 cartridges in two weeks! I work a lot of hours so I don't get much printing time. I've already purchased a non-Epson printer to replace it. Once these new cartridges are empty (6 days if track record stays intact!) this WF-2650 is going in the trash where it belongs!

    Expensive but Necessary

    This cartridge was easy to replace. My biggest complaint is the cost for so little ink. This seems to be a standard industry practice, but it is not a consumer friendly one. Once you buy the printer you really have little choice. I tried off brands, which are cheaper, but they did not work and probably were the cause of the death of my last printer.. So, in summary, I like the printer, but am unhappy with the cost of the ink.

    The product did not deliver ink very well.

    This product did not perform well. I installed the product and the print quality was terrible. I continued to try the printing to no avail. Finally, I observed a small piece of rubber was not correctly placed inside the cartridge. I pulled it out with a tweezer and placed it in the cartridge correctly. The print quality was good after that. Unfortunately, by that time, most of the ink was used up.

    I always use these oem inks In my printer .it would get a higher rating if they lasted longer but that is an epson issue I could buy the longer lasting ones but the price is much higher. Best Buy is very good compared to some other sources ....as far as I know, Best Buy does not offer credit for expended ink returns like staples does, so I return the empties to staples for ink credit.

    The price of this ink cartridge replacement, is very inexpensive and the cheapist I have ever come across in all the different printers I have owned. It is easy to replace and I have nevet gotten any ink on my hands, which is something I cannot say with other cartridges.

    I gave this cartridge a 5 star rating although I didn't use it. If it's like the 200 Epson cartridge it last a decent amount of time and is a decent price. Unfortunately, after installing it and it wouldn't work, I realized it was the wrong one. I bought the 220 and needed the 200. The numbers are too close to the same. After trying to install it, I could not take it back to exchange it.

    Cartridges are smaller with less ink

    For the inexpensive price of the printer, I understand that buying ink cartridges is where "they" make their money, but I didn't get very many papers printed out before I needed to change out the ink cartridge. At least they could have made the black cartridge twice as big to get a bit more life out of it. I would recommend it only if someone didn't need to print out a lot of pages.

    A good value for the price on my ink carriages. I love the attention of customer service I always get when I'm in the store. Very helpful. unfortunately I've noticed the yellow ink cartridge is unfortunately showing low after only a few black ink print jobs. No idea why so I will be going back to company about that and see what they do for me, hopefully replace the yellow for me at no charge.

    I use this for a home office printer. I run off the odd form and kids' homework assignment now and again; I'm not printing up flyers for the local bar. This thing just doesn't seem to last any set of time. If it's not black it's another color. I'm constantly changing these out. If I could do it over I would have done more research and gotten a different printer.

    Ink seems to run out fast. I’m having to buy black almost monthly and I don’t print very much. My previous Epson printer didn’t seem to use nearly as much but I like the versatility. I have not heard of a model that seems to use ink well though.

    Not sure this cartridge did in my printer or not

    My printer took a dive not long after I replaced the factory cartridge with this cartridge. The diaphragm that the ink flows through before the nozzle has started seizing up from what I believe is dried ink and it was not not an issue before the new printer. There's no way to prove it's the cartridge that did it, but I can't ignore the timing.
