    Excellent ink...but carefully read box contents.

    While I have not yet opened this exact package, I have used other packages of the Epson 273 ink and they are great. They produce very fast drying, and beautiful color photographs in my Epson XP-820 printer using Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy. My only gripe about THIS particular package is that I though ALL of the 5 cartridges that came in this package were the XL size as on the top front of the box it says 273XL. BUT....that is only for the regular black. The other 4 cartridges (photo black, cyan, magenta and yellow) are the regular size. I guess it's really my fault for not correctly reading everything on the box and I'm sure it's a great marketing item to do it that way for Epson. It would be nice if all of the cartridges in this box were XL though.

    Epson Means Great Photos

    I have 4 printers, HP Color Laser for long color print jobs, Brother MFC for copies, and scans to desktops, and black and white booklets, and reports, a Kodak inexpensive inket, great for quick jobs, connects wireless to everything, and an Epson Inkjet used for photographic printing, for fun, for work, to take to events and plug in an SD Card and print superb 4x6 prints in 20 seconds. The XL Cartridge gives lots of prints. Yes it costs a lot, but remember when we paid 25 and 50 cents each for a print at the drug store?

    The ink is the recommended ink.

    I had no problem with the ink, except the black cartridge had leaked out making it not usable. I contacted Best Buy to get a replacement sent overnight as I had run out of black ink that day and needed it. I explained I had no time to shop and hence the reason I online ordered. They informed me they had no overnight option and I would need to wait 5-7 business days for the replacement. I was not at all happy with that. I did receive it in 4 days, but I still believe an overnight option should exist, especially if needed to correct a faulty product!

    good quality with significant waste

    Printer xp-810 doesn't let you use the full amount in cartridge and will not allow print job through if even one color is "empty." Switched from hp thinking their product was a ripoff for this reason, but Epson is worse. For cost only, I am not recommending the ink. The printer sometimes resets document default to photo, not sure whether or not it's an ink cartridge issue but it's kind of a pain. Will be looking at hp again next time around.

    Reliable Epson Printer Ink

    This multi-pack of Epson printer ink is very helpful. esp. with high capacity black. I've never experienced any defective ink cartridges & this pack is priced competitively. (I greatly appreciate Best Buys' price match!) As with all ink cartridges, they don't last forever, but the efficacy of your printer greatly impacts cartridge's longevity. When printing or copying black text, choose lighter setting to help your black last longer.

    I appreciated being able to buy black ink in store because my printer was out of ink and we needed to print. However, I had to buy color cartridges with it which were not needed. Additionally, there was some initial smudging of the black ink, the first time this has ever happened to me with Epson Ink use. Customer service was great at the Tulsa Hills Best Buy with help finding what was in-stock and looking up available alternatives on-line.

    I have had my Epson printer for over three years and continue to order new ink from Best Buy without issue. I buy the combination pack that includes all five print cartridges to allow me to get a better price overall. On occasion I receive a coupon for an additional cost reduction. It would be great to receive these more often as I will continue to be a loyal customer and buy from Best Buy with these incentives.

    Shamefull packaging and description make you think that all items are xl...not! Only comes w a black xl cart. Just plain ridiculous! The only reason to get a XL pack wouldn't be for the black XL it would be for all of the colors in XL. The packaging and description or deceptive. If you really only wanted a black XL that's the easiest to buy in the retail store.

    This appears to be a very good product as it seems to be consistent color patterns and it is quite a bit more ink than the regular cartridiges. I only wish that they could get the price point down a little as i have noticed other brands with about the same amount of ink and quality of ink seems to be a little less cost. Other than that like i said it is a very good product that i would tell anyone to use it.

    I have an Epson XP-610 printer and this is the ink refills for it. From Epson I can only get the colors and photo black in multipack and buy black separetely. Only through Best Buy can you get the multipack including the black xl cartridge. I buy it through Best Buy online and then go to the store and pick it up. Until I get a new printer I will continue to purchase it this way.

    I like that they work on my printer. I tried some other cartridges that were not epson and they were terrible. These are for an older printer and are getting hard to find even at Best Buy. They don't seem to last very long especially for the price. I probably will be looking for a different brand of printer.

    I have found out that buying ink from many of the discount ink company are not worth the hassle, wrong item shipped, leaks and not fitting. When you call to complain they say if you turn the printer towards magnetic north or some other nonsense the ink will work. As a best buy member you get 15% off your ink purchases thats the best price I have found for epson ink

    Too small for the price

    These ink cartridges are too small and very short living, and yet, their price is extremely high. Epson really takes big advantage of customers that purchased their printers. On top of that, whether is the cartridge or the printer, sometimes black ink large leaking spots are found in the printout sheets. So much for 21st century's technology!

    Nice, but don't last as long

    I come from an HP printer background. I switched to Epson and I was hoping the ink cartridges would last just as long. Well, they don't. These are tiny and don't contain much ink for each color. Having to replace only one color doesn't help, because you buy them as a kit, not by individual colors. The quality of the print is quite good though.

    I would not recommend the printer I bought because of all the ink cartridges it takes. The worst thing is that it won't work if any one of the 5 ink cartridges is out. So you have to keep a spare of all 5 even if you only want to print in black. I would definitely not recommend this printer to anyone!

    Buy Genuine Epson Ink!

    Before I purchased my printer I did a lot of research of who had the best ink and Epson was by far a favorite brand. I use genuine Epson ink in my Epson XP-610 Printer and I couldn't be happier with the consistent quality of my work. The quality of Epson ink is excellent and cost is less than many of it's competitors. I'm glad I made the switch!

    This Epson #273 ink replacement cartridges are fine. Easy to install. They do get expensive as I feel like I’m replacing them often. Thankfully Best Buy keeps them in stock. We just bought an Epson Eco Tank printer for our kids as they do a lot of printing for school. I’m anxious to see how this ink lasts.

    Epson XP 610/810 printer cartridges

    The nice thing about this product is that each color has a separate cartridge and the cartridges work in both XP610 and XP810 printers I have. I don't use the printers very much - just a few times a week - and I don't have any problems with the print heads clogging, which I had heard was a problem for Epson printers in the past.

    Epson Ink replacement pack with XL Black is best

    Replacing ink cartridges individually can be tedious unless you get the XL [extended life] black cartridge as Black ink runs out faster since most copies are B & W. Buying the full pack of the one black high capacity cartridge with multiple standard capacity ink cartridges allows 1 time replacement for all.

    Prints very good quality photos on proper paper

    I use this ink in an XP-620 for printing photos for projects that start as almost all digital, but are eventually archived for 10 years in hard copy. The 18-month-old prints have held unchanged quality in filing cabinets on photo paper. Very expensive choice for text only; I have a black-only laser printer for papers.
