    HP 63 Black Ink

    Looks good so far! Prints nicely. But upon using, it would print out a test page every time I printed something. That wastes ink and uses more! Not sure if that's common or operater error; my (adult) daughter may have pushed the button a few times to produce the test print page and since it didnt come out right away, it probably stored and came out with each other prints. Also upon printing I'd get a message tell me "Counterfeit Cartridge Detected". It kept coming up until I bypassed it somehow. I was going to call Best Buy to ask if both these situations were common, but eventually those issues went away. After all that it's working great. **I had two photos of the "counterfeit" error message but only one uploaded. due to space.

    HP ink works great, as usual

    I received my HP3830 printer as a Christmas gift from my sister in 2015. She also sent a 2 pack of ink (one color and one black) number 61. This is the cartridge number for the printer I had asked for, HP3511. Unfortunately, that printer was no longer available, and the 3830 was supposed to be an "upgrade". And when they sold her the extra ink cartridges, they sold her the cartridges for the 3511. So I needed ink (when the ink runs out on these newer printers, there is no warning. I opened the package, pulled out the cartridge, and installed the new one. Since they were the exact same size, I didn't notice it wasn't the correct one until it didn't work. I went to my local Best Buy, and of course they had the right cartridge, for a great price.

    Dependable, quality ink!

    I buy all HP cartridges for my HP printer at Best Buy...and I buy a few at a time to make sure I do not run out and then have to make an emergency trip. Considered the new (to me anyway) service HP provides which automatically orders and sends replacements when your current cartridges become low; however, decided not to go that way because: 1) My printing volume is generally not that high so replacement via Best Buy is infrequent and not bothersome, and 2) The extra cartridges I keep on hand have NEVER given me a problem, such as dried or inoperable in any other way. Their shelf life in my closet appears to be no less than 6 months. Thus, dependable and high quality!

    I have an HP Office Jet 4650 which has the automatic ordering system. I opted out of this ordering system as I have friends that had to opt out as it sent cartridges to often to quickly. I learned today that you can buy a card from Best Buy and only pay when you order instead of a monthly charge from HP whether you need ink or not. The cartridge works flawlessly and I’m good for at least another three months. Look for competing retailers offering sale prices on HP cartridges and Best Buy will match the price. Why shop anywhere else?

    The ink was as black as the night

    The packaging caught my eye right away. The fluorescent-blue butterflies were amazingly blue. I was mesmerized! I had to have that cartridge right away. I could hardly wait to get it home and put it in my printer. I had to print something, anything, just see the magic of the ink. As the sheet of paper slowly eased out of my printer, my eyes looked upon the snow white paper; ink in its beautiful blackness. It was as if I was looking in hundreds of tiny-beautiful black pools. It was heavenly. There can never be any other ink brand that can cause my heart beat like the enchanting HP 63.

    Not the best value for the price

    I purchased this cartridge because my printer ran out of ink. I've since read some reviews and they generally complain that the ink doesn't last very long and the cartridge is overpriced. I would tend to concur. I tried competitive shopping this product and found that the various retailers all sold it for about the same price. Only Best Buy jacked up the price by four dollars. So if you have a five-dollar reward certificate to apply, you only end up saving a dollar. No wonder people try to refill the cartridge with generic ink. I think I tried this once, but did not get good results.

    Good Quality Ink

    Because my husband works from home his copies need to be of good quality. We purchased an hp printer that uses hp ink cartridges. The black and white ink cartridges printing is clean, dark and focused. No smudges or blurs. The colored ink does a fine job of copying all different shades. My son also uses the printer for school papers. I use it for coupons, etc. This is the first time we've used hp ink cartridges and find them to be much better than others we've used. Happy using hp ink.

    The ink cartridges that I purchased for the HP wireless printer have been lasting for less and less sheets over the last several purchase, and this is not the only printer/printer brand, that I have noticed having this issue. It seems that as the age of the printer increases the replacement filters holding less and less ink, as proven by the fewer and lighter copies that are provideed by these new cartridges.

    I received a color and a black ink cartridge with my HP ENVY 4520 printer. I knew I had over three hundred pages to print with black ink and only a few color pages so I purchased two extra black ink cartridges. As of today, I have used close to two hundred sheets of paper, most of them printed on both sides and I am still using the original ink cartridge. I have not opened either of my two extra cartridges.

    HP makes the best ink and cartridges on the market. Their ink is easy to install. And works without complications. My printer always tells me exactly how much ink I have left and I can order ink directly from my computer or my smartphone. The only drawback is that it prints out a new page every time you install new ink. I have dozens of these pages already but I can't stop it from printing the page out when I install a new cartridge.

    We bought an HP Envy 4520 on sale a while back at Best Buy and we were not sure how long the ink that came with the printer would last. Even though we don't use the Envy all the time, we bought this Black 63 as a backup. Because we are impressed with how good the print is from this cartridge. The standard is still going but we're ready when we have to change it.

    Doesn't last or Best Buy's ink program is the prob

    I don't think this is an HP ink issue. The quality of the product is great. Where my issue is, either these carts have a very poor lifespan, or Best Buy's ink replacement program needs to dial it back. I've had this printer since Christmas, and I haven't gone through a pack of paper, but I have received 2 shipments of color and black ink. Crazy

      Hi JM,

      I am sorry that you got so few printouts from the cartridge. Unless you were doing a lot of printing that required high-density ink usage, it does seem like you should have gotten more printed.

      I can certainly understand wanting to find more affordable options for your printing! Toward that end, you might be interested in trying Instant Ink. Details about the pay-by-the page plans can be found here: instantink.com

      If you feel that the poor page yield was caused by a defective cartridge, you have the option to request a replacement or refund from the seller.

    SO BLACK

    This is the blackest of black ink you can ever buy! I don't know if 5 stars is enough to give on this review, but seriously, if you want black ink, this is it! It's not slightly black, or a really darker shade of grey, its BLACK! So if you don't don't have an HP printer, or the right HP printer you are out of luck on this one!

    I recently needed to purchase a new ink cartridge for my printer. After checking on line at prices I purchased the HP63 at Best Buy. They had it in stock and beat the selling price of nearby competitors. The ink is of great quality and very easy to install into my printer. It prints out clearly and even on the page. I recommend this ink to anyone.

    This product worked as expected. Great buy. I was able to easily install and align the cartridge. I have purchased other cartridges at other locations that installed well but soon after failed by constantly printing lines in my documents even though the ink supply was not exhausted. I am glad that I decided to purchase a replacement at Best Buy before throwing out my printer.

    It's too bad that the price of this ink appears to increase almost every time I purchase it...like every 3-6 months. I won't buy the XL version because It's really costly and says it's supposed to last like 2-2.5X longer, but has only lasted me like 1.5 times longer. Not worth the extra money.

    I didn't know this was going to automatically order itself after I had bought this printer. I cancelled this shi hella quick because I don't need ink every certain amount of months. They should let you know that they're gonna charge you for ink right after u buy a printer even if you didn't ask for it. Besides that it works good.

    HP 63 Black ink is the best

    I've been to those stores where they refill the ink cartridges for half the price of a new one. However, there were times when I wasn't sure they were completely filled, or the ink was not of the highest quality. When I buy my HP ink cartridges from Best Buy, I know I am getting the highest quality available!

    This is a suitable cartridge for those who need to print on a budget. It lasts long enough to get any job done. However, if you need to print multiple lots and over longer periods of time - if you're a student or teacher for example - you'll definitely want to get the XL!

    Cheaper ink than most black ink cartridges

    Hp claims with this HP 63 ink cartridge, you can easily generate documents with crisp, clear text that dries quickly and resists smudging using your compatible HP DeskJet, OfficeJet or ENVY printer. True to a point but when printing in grayscale, this ink can be a bit hard to read. I agree it dries quickly and resists some smudging.
