    The price is high it's just ink and personally I think they charge way too much for ink it doesn't cost much for these ink companies to make it is one item that is way over priced you can buy a printer with ink included for a few dollars more I guess that's shows how truly over priced it is but we need it so unless we all stand up and get our voices head about what people are getting over charged for it will not change in essence it is up to people to help change things for the better and if we would stand up and let our voices be heard for what we believe in things won't change please use your voice to help change the small things which will in turn start to change the big things thank you Jesus for free will so we can have a voice for change and I pray it glorifies you .there are cheaper inks if you buy the right printer this is for my fax printer scanner check ink prices before you buy the printer

    HP XL Black- High Power

    High Powered Ink. That's how I see it. Yes HP XL Black does a world of good and meets my printing needs to the max. I like the fact that it holds more ink and compares very favorably when put against the standard black of its own kind. It is very cost effective, and I rather like that. Whenever I shop, not only do I think about spending, but saving is also my concern. HP XL Black gives you far more printing pages, and saves you money too. Do the math, compare and save. Save money, save time, save yourself from frustration and worry that a smaller cartridge may end on you in the middle of an important job. HP XL ...High Powered Ink .... I like the sound of that, plus convenience, savings and more.

    ink good - but Best Buy disappointing

    The ink is always good, so gave the review a 5. But, there was a special buy 2 for sale on this ink. I purchased 2 and received 1 email saying 1 was ready for pickup awaiting the 2nd one. I then received another email saying 1 was not available and my order was cancelled for the 2nd one. The price of just 1 (26.67) was in the email, but when I received the bill an additional charge of 6.65 was there. I called the online ordering customer service to say I ordered the 2 and I should just get charged for 1/2 the price since they didn't have the other (who doesn't have HP ink or can get it). They didn't help and I asked for a supervisor and was disconnected. Very disappointed on how Best Buy handled my purchase.

    This ink will last more than double that of the standard 951 black ink cartridge. You do pay a higher cost for this I think it's a little to high it should be about $7-10 cheaper. The thing is it is worth the extra money. When you do a price comparison of the 951 to the 951XL in store only (cause you ran out and need it immediately thank you kids for telling me that it was low and waiting till the last minute for your project you need done.) Don't laugh at me it's happened to you before to and you know it... anyways it makes sense money wise to get this one.

    Black ink for your printer

    Let's say you really need to print something, and the whole time you think to yourself, "Man, this printing job would look great if only it were in black instead of that bright pink/purple combo I've been using." Well, have no fear - HP is here...WITH BLACK INK. That's right, it's black. No formal trickery here - it won't print blue or green instead like those OTHER brands. The box says "black" and it indeed prints black. You'll be like, "Wow! I love how it looks in black ink!" because you've chosen to print in black and yes...that's what this little box of ink will do for you. That's right, it's always a party with black ink.

    Good Product at a Good Price

    One of the things I love about my HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 is that I can replace a specific color that's running low. Since I print mostly manuscripts, that means that it's my black ink cartridge that suffers the most abuse. So far, so good. I've printed one full length manuscript (300 pages), several invoices, and quite a few spreadsheets. No fuss, no muss. My old printer's quality was poor in comparison to this - the ink smeared pretty easily. With this cartridge, I've had no smearage problems. I also like that I can purchase an XL cartridge, mostly because I'm lazy and don't want to replace these things any more often than I have to!

    Satisfied with product. Have researched advertised vs. actual print capacities via 3rd party reviewers, as printer ink sold by some printing companies have been found to produce LESS pages than advertised. I have no such concerns with this product. I do a lot of printing for graduate school and have found that HP ink cartridges often print MORE pages than the minimum page count listed on the product package. This product consistently exceeds my expectations. For this reason, I give this product 5 Stars.

    I tried to save some money and ordered generic ink cartridges online for my HP Officejet Pro 8620. What a waste! Despite the positive reviews and "fixes" offered by the vendors and customers, I could not get them to work in my printer. I was worried I had caused damage to the printer by using non-OEM cartridges, but once I put the new HP cartridges in, I was back in business! I was able to price match an online sale on my purchase, and has them ready for pickup the same day! Will continue to order ONLY HP cartridges from Best Buy!

    HP High-Capacity Ink Cartridges are the Best Buy!

    HP's inkjet cartridges have always been my first choice, and only choice. I refuse to use anything less in my machines. The high-capacity cartidges have been available for a while now, but many users aren't aware of them, or their value. I've used HP OfficeJet Pro combo Printers for about 30 years now. I've never had an issue with the machines OR with the HP ink cartridges! I highly recommend these for their long-lasting high quality and excellent purchase value! 5 Stars!

    Whatever happened to the days of purchasing ink at an economical price? This ink is relatively expensive and I'm not sure how much better it prints or how many more pages I could print with it over the non XL version. Nonetheless, I needed ink. So, I purchased it. It does the job and I'm sure I will purchase it again because other than price, I have no problem with the ink.

    I bought this XL pack knowing that black is the most used color for my personal printing use. HP has made the good choice of offering a XL size of ink however, I did not find the other 3 necessary inks in the XL size. My biggest flaw with this product is the cost of the ink. Other printer companies have cheaper cost in ink cartridges but lack some features on their printers that HP has offered which is why I ultimately chose the HP printer. Overall a good quality ink I just wish HP would lower the cost.

    I will not use the cheaper ink refills, and have bought HP ink cartridges from every business supply store in town but I have finally settled in to just going straight to Best Buy. Rewards customers get 15% off, plus credit for recycled cartridges, and 5% back in rewards which I often use for the next round of refills. My Best Buy is close by, so in addition I save fuel I would use to drive across town. The product is the same everywhere so why not get the best price possible?

    The cost of ink... it is what it is. But putting cost aside, I would now always purchase Genuine HP Ink, from a retail store. There are just too many counterfeit inks out there, and you cannot tell real from fake. Most are packaged almost identically to the genuine product, both foil package and retail retail box, and they do not last long enough. Sometimes the ink will clog your printhead, and when that happens, it becomes even more costly. Stay away from cheap inks available online and always buy genuine HP inks.

    I use my printer constantly and have just recently bought replacement cartridges, they came in quickly and I still haven't had to use them even though my printer is showing low on ink. I bought replacements because I do so much printing. I do my church's bulletins so can't run out of ink so as soon as I saw that I was low I figured I better get some replacement cartridges, that was two weeks ago and the copies are still coming out very nice! Definitely recommend these ink cartridges!

    this is the best cartridge. you buy the double size and it seems that you can print forever. all of the color runs out before the black and I print mostly black copy. it lasts a long time but I do not work in an office or print a lot of photos. but I do print a lot of medical records and receipts because my daughter is sick and has to go to the cancer center every month and to the heart doctor and a lot of other doctors , so I am printing a lot of KEEP records. It is a great product.

    Hp ink - a necessary evil

    What's there to say, it's ink. We all know how it works, get printer at reasonable price, pay through the nose for ink. Surprisingly, my printer, HP8600, seems pretty efficient with the ink. I don't feel like I have to replace a cartridge all that frequently. The annoying thing is that it won't allow you to print if one cartridge is empty, even if I'm not using that color. Best buy had the ink in the store, price matched Amazon and tossed me a few reward points. I guess we're all happy.

    Ink is expensive, so let's just leave those angry thoughts at the door. I normally buy my printer ink from Office Depot (shhhh) but Best Buy has been putting their HP ink cartridges on sale so now I can save money AND earn Best Buy rewards. It's a win win! These XL High-Yield Ink Cartridges are also totally worth the additional cost. You are getting roughly twice the yield over the standard cartridges at approximately 15%-20% additional cost.

    Best Black Ink for Our Printer

    Considering the fact that our printer only takes a few specific ink cartridges and that the printer prints fine (the last one died 2 years and 2 weeks after we bought it - similar model), I'll rate this ink at 5 stars. The only reason that we bought another printer of this model line is that we had a pile of ink on hand and if we had not already had this ink, then I probably would have bought an Epson printer and would not be writing this honest review today.

    HP cartridges and ink are excellent. This is a big reason why people buy HP printers. The issue is that HP cartridges are expensive. This cartridge is rated to print double the number of pages printed by a regular HP cartridge, and costs only about 50% more than a regular cartridge. If that holds true, then there is some savings in buying this improved cartridge.

    Who likes buying replacement ink? It hardly ever goes on sale, and discount/sale coupons usually don't apply, but let's face it, we all need it in order to function! Well, we have found that HP's XL ink really does last as long as they say it will. And with Best Buy's price match policy and the ability to apply rewards to ink purchases, we find that buying replacement ink is a relatively pleasant experience!
