    Thank God I didn't buy the four colours! Although on the label of this product (564 ink cartridge) HP mentions the printers compatible with I had to throw it in the recycling because of incompatibility issue. More precisely; HP listed the printers that are comparable with the above cartridge and one of them is HP 6510 like mine so, I bought the black colour only and installed it but the printer initiated a warning "ink cartridge not compatible!" Best Buy told me from the beginning that no return policy for inks! So I had to through it in the recycling. Thank you all for this experience and it seems that the HP printer is going to follow to the recycling as the cartridge number specified for my printer is 178 and they don't sell it in USA. Note that my printer was purchased from Saudi Arabia with an international guarantee!!

    Went into Inver Grove Heights store looking for the 564 black ink cartridge. She showed me the black cartridge. I said I didn't think it was the right one because my HP Photosmart 7520 uses 2 black cartridges - 1 small and 1 large. She kept saying that that must be the right one. She was not willing to go online and look up the ink cartridge that the printer uses. I bought it and brought it home. It is NOT the correct one. I need the 564 Black 2018/04. The one brought home is 2018/03. Heading out of town and don't have time to go back. I wished she had actually helped me with looking up the product that I actually bought at that store!!!!

    HP cartridge 564 do not live up to expectations

    The HP 564 ink cartridges,whether black or color, do not deliver the number of copies suggested by HP on their website or by sales personal at the retailers following HP recommendations. HP professes a 250 copy capability. Instead, I experienced a dramatic difference. I took the time to log three (3) black cartridges.The result was 150-163 copies. In talking with HP , I stated that the darkness setting made little to no difference.Quite possibly there may be a resolve to this matter.If not,the only reason to own a printer would be an expensive convenience to HP costumers. Do the math for yourself.

    I barely use my printer but always seem to buy ink. I have to replace all the ink 4 times a year. Maybe made 300 copies and barely 100 pictures a year. I have had the printer for almost 3 years. The ink costs $60 each time. I read switch to HP over cannon because of ink cost and how much you get out of them. Not even close.... I would barely buy 2 sets a year with same usage. Also, normally my canon would run out of colors randomly telling me it uses them properly. It seems odd that the HP would run out of ALL ink at the same time since day one.

    HP 564 Black INK

    The black ink has good quality when printing photos with the HP 7520 printer, but it runs out very quickly. Upon purchasing the XL of this cartridge , I ran into the printer "not recognizing" the xl cartridge in it. After multiple blogs and trouble-shooting advice, I came across a blog that does NOT recommend the black XL size in this particular model for this exact reason... so I stick to the average size. As I said, the ink QUALITY is good, but the QUANTITY in is is not very good. When purchasing a printer, be sure to check the cost of replacement cartridges and the amount of ink in them....

    Most printers' inks usually always cost more than the printer itself! So after a month long of searching the best price in the whole Saint Louis city, I decided to go to BestBuy a week after purchasing Christmas gifts for families, so I could print all the holiday related receipts and thank you notes. I was so lucky because they had them on sale for 15% off for Elite Rewards members, and I'm so glad I went that day because at least I didn't have to sell a newborn to just buy a cartridge of ink. Good price, prints very well so far and overall value is fantastic.

    I purchased an HP All-In-One for additional work sometimes done at home. I don't feel like I ever get even 100 copies out of this cartridge, even though I keep the printer on the lowest quality print setting. I also tried getting the XL in this cartridge, and got a little less than double of what I normally get. HP needs to improve these cartridges as they are far too expensive for the results received. On a positive note, I will say that the print quality is good, even on the lowest setting.

    Best buy has been the"go to"for my ink purchases. They've been the cheapest for new ink. And HP ink cartridges are good for your basic printing needs. Haven't notice any smudging or streaking when it has ink. When low on ink it starts to do that, but that's due to low ink. And it's more of a fade /blur effect. I can't be for sure how long it'll last due to about 2-3 other people using the printer. But, about every few months it'll need new cartridges. And they are easy to remove and install from the printer.

    This is the basic black ink replacement cartridge for an HP Officejet 4620 Wireless All-in-One Printer in a home system. It keeps the printer up and running for printing of grayscale products such as letters and notes, or draft documents. The flow of the ink is consistent and dependable, even though all cartridges will dry out in time once opened and installed if there is not a sufficient level of use. Though there are larger capacity cartridges, this is the best product for the cost-conscious home user who has lower printing needs.

    quality ink for quality printing

    I recently purchased a new printer and this was the first time I needed to replace the ink. I heard a few horror stories about generic inks so I went with HP. There is no hassle with this ink, it simply works and works well. I'm not sure what the life expectancy will be but since most of my printing is a few photos and some term papers it should hold me for a while. This is a review for only black ink, I noticed that it would cost quite a bit more if I purchased all the inks together, but that is to be expected.

    Decent ink, but......

    Ok, not Best Buy's fault, nor the actual ink's fault, but......Of course the print quality is great, but the fact that HP is makes it impossible to use any ink cartridge other than their own infuriates me. Their printers are made to sabotage any other refurbished brand including those that are re-fillable. For that reason, as well as the fact HP printers are designed to use as much ink as possible (default set to "high-quality" which uses a TON of ink) , I will NEVER purchase another HP product....ever.

I am always impressed with the communication competence of the staff. They clearly explain the features and use of the product at my level of understanding neither insulting my intelligence nor showing off theirs. Thank you for stocking quality products at good prices.

    Genuine HP Cartridge

    This is a genuine HP replacement cartridge and works flawless in my HP Printer. Upon installation, the printer recognizes that a genuine HP replacement cartridge has been installed. The price is expensive compared to aftermarket products. However, I have never tried an aftermarket replacement cartridge so I don’t know how their performance would compare to an HP. I do know that I have never, ever had any issues whatsoever with an HP replacement cartridge. So for me, I’ll stick with what works.

    Does what it is expected to do

    What does one expect from an ink cartridge? 1. I must be easy to instal and remove. 2. I can not create a mess require one to clean hand after handling. 3. It must last a long time. 4. It must have a long shelf life 5. It must be reasonably priced. I would say the the first four requirements appear to be satisfied, but I have been using this model printer long enough to say with certainty. Also, I think the price for ink cartridges in general needs to come down big time.

    Small cartridge so few copies

    As we don't use our printer much but take advantage of the wireless printing, it cycles each time using ink so we did not get near the amount of copies stated in reviews. Pretty expensive for what you get but we have to go with the smaller ones as we have had issues with printer heads in other printers drying out and malfunctioning due to our lack of use of the printer. I would recommend spending the extra to get the larger cartridge if you print on a regular basis.

    Only problem I had was the tape didn't come off all the way and I had to go on the HP site to figure out how to stick a needle in the end to get the tape out of the hole. This is the second cartridge I had like this that the black ink wouldn't flow when first opened and I had to fix this way. That's why i gave it an average rating. The company needs to fix this before they box it in the factory. Wasted a lot of paper running test pages to figure out the problem.

    Black ink cartridge works well.

    The black ink cartridge works well. I previously bought the larger black ink cartridge but I don't think I was able to print more pages with it than with the standard sized cartridge because I don't print a lot. It seems the cartridges will not print as many pages if they are in the printer and unused for days or weeks. So if you're not printing that often, the smaller sized black ink cartridge may prove to be a better buy.

    I have two HP printers that take different cartridges which differ significantly in cost - the older printer taking the more expensive cartridges. I much prefer these new lower price cartridges with separate cartridges for each color. They perform as well as the more expensive. I use my printers infrequently and occasionally have to spend ink to clear or clean a cartridge, That's less expensive to do with the 564 and its colored counterparts.

    Although I wish laser printers were more affordable in today's age, but when one is stuck with those of the ink variant, you tend to choose HP. These get the job done, although for some odd reason I feel that it runs out of ink too quickly. Unfortunately, the prices for HP ink cartridges are going up, so I would definitely recommend looking into other printing variants. All in all, it is a simple product for a simple job.
