    Decent price, but doesn't go very far.

    Anyone who's owned an HP product and really looked into it, the ink cartridges never print as many pages as the box says. You'll also find that more often than not, one of the three colors runs out before another. But this isn't necessarily brand-specific. It's an issue with all name-brand printer inks. So it stands to reason, I can't really even take that into consideration here. Nor the fact that every brand makes their cartridges proprietary and even model-specific. -- But I digress... The print quality is good, the cartridges last about as long as expected, and the price doesn't necessarily break the bank as some do. I just wish that when they go on sale, they're discounting more than a dollar. X^)

    I have purchased HP ink at Best Buy many times before. Sometimes I go into the store and purchase it, and sometimes I order it online, and then pick it up. It is nice to have that option! The salesman that helped us was a very nice young man, a senior in high school. We chatted with him about our purchase and also about the computers on display. He was willing to take the time and show me a little look at Windows 10. You should be proud to have such a nice man as an employee; he was pleasant, and easy to converse with! That means a lot to customers.

    I used to have a Canon inkjet printer, the ink for that printer was expensive and separated cartridges. Each main color was a cartridge. If I wanted to buy the whole package, it cost around $80-$90 dollars. If one cartridge was out the printer didn't work. Now, I tried the Hp, the Black and colors cartridges altogether cost me around $25.00_$30.00. I have noticed that they last longer and have a great printing quality. I like it a lot. Best Buy always have them available.

    I've had a number of different printers over the years and I always come back to HP. I've always been tempted to try the refilled cartridges you can get cheaper, but the number of bad reviews I've read keep me with the real deal HP cartridges. My printer is for home use only, so I can get a lot of mileage out of a cartridge, plus the prices and rewards programs with Best Buy make the sticker shock a little less when it comes time to replace them. HP all the way.

    We purchased this cartridge when we bought a new printer to replace one that had stopped working. One of the things we liked was the lower cost ink then the other cartridges we examined. A downside is that this cartridge has several colors in it. You could end up having to replace it before the colors are used up if one color is printed more that the others in the cartridge. Not exactly a defect in the cartridge, more of a problem with the overall printer design.

    I've refilled ink cartridges before but I still like the new ones better. Prices aren't that different anymore either, at least not from what I've seen. Sometime I still think that it's almost better to buy a new printer than to pay the price for some ink cartridges so its always a good idea to check the price of replacement ink before you buy a printer. This one is still much cheaper on the replacement ink than some I've seen!!

    Quality copies, but I think it dries out

    This cartridge produces quality pages, but it seems to dry out. It’s the same for my black cartridge. I don’t print a lot, so it’s in my printer for a long time. Shaking it doesn’t seem to help. I don’t get anywhere near 165 color pages as the product claims. Maybe half of that? Even if I did, 165 pages divided by $25 is 6.6¢ per page, which I think is high for a home printer.

    Love my HP printer. Just don't like that sometimes the ink cartridges doesn't want to work correctly or can't read the cartridge? I love when it states to replace cartridge because it has expired? I purchased one cartridge recently and 20 4x6 prints latter and I was out of ink? Then off to Best Buy to purchase another cartridge. I printed 50 more 4x6 prints and my current cartridge still register that my cartridge is full?

    I ran out of ink while printing color documents on my HP printer. I went to the Best Buy in Patchogue and bought a HP-61 color cartridge. I prefer to use HP products rather than refilling cartridges with other inks. The original equipment cartridges cost more than other refill options but they work well.

    This purchase was to replace defective product that would not work. Unfortunately, only way to verify defective product necessitated opening product which then prevented ability for credit or exchange. $30 plus dollars down the drain. There has to be a method to allow exchange when this happens. Don't punish all customers for deceitfully actions of a few.

    I really like the quality of HP products in general, including this ink cartridge. I think that their computers are a better value than their ink cartridges though. At least with the XL size ink cartridge, you get a better price than the standard version. I would give it 5 stars except for the pricing. Watch for sales at Best Buy and/or use the rewards program .

    As a Teacher, I print tons of paperwork for my students throughout the year. However, my students are mainly fond of colorful "Center Work". It's important to keep my students engaged, and eager to work on the assignment. Therefore, I rely on making good quality and colorful work for my students to enjoy while working. HP 61 color cartridge is student approved!!

    I have been very happy with my HP printers, they print great photos. They only negative I can find with these cartridges is that when they really stop working and need to be replaced the ink cartridge level indicator on the printer and in the application say there is still ink left. This means I am either not getting my moneys worth or the software isn't sure how much ink is left

    New cartridge for HP printer, not yet used

    As far as I know this ink cartridge will work fine. I bought a color and black cartridge with my new HP Officejet 4630 printer. So far the original ink cartridges are still working, so I haven't installed the new ones. I've always been satisfied with HP ink cartridges, though I don't know that they're a great bargain. I'm sure selling ink is how HP makes a profit on their printers.

    I am not happy with these ink cartages #61. I usually can get 3+ weeks out of each cartage. These cartages are gone in 5 days and yesterday I installed two new 61 cartages and now in one day is showing printer is low on ink, in only 1 day. These appear to be half empty with ink. Or this is a bad batch. I need a refund or will return.

    I purchase this item all the time. It is the greatest. I really really really like it a lot. I will probably purchase this item next month and the next and the next and so on and so on. I really really really like the fact that I get a fifteen percent discount on all ink purchases just for being a Best Buy rewards member. I can't get enough of this product

    Cartridges are getting expensive. I remember when you could get B/W and Color for the price of a single color cartridge. If you are going to spend the money, get the best quality. Store brands are not that great and don't last after a lot of copies. Get this one because it's good for the price. Reduce the price with a sale every once and a while, PLEASE!

    I have been using HP printer inks for many years. Printing onto fabric is no more difficult with this ink than printing onto paper. It is great for printing special family photos onto white fabric sheets and making into pillows or totes.. So many ways to use the final printed product. Works great on paper, too. Dries fast and does not smeat. Love that!

    I like using the genuine HP61 cartridges for my printers. The quality is awesome and the price is reasonable. I have been using them for many years. I once tried a generic brand and it was a total flop. I went back to my genuine HP cartridges and will stick with them until the need arises that I would neet to get a different printer that would not use these cartridges.
