We have been using the HP Photosmart C7280 for years so we have been purchasing the HP 02 product for an extensive period of time. The HP 02 Magenta Ink Cartridge (C8772WN) by HP is an excellent ink and cartridge for the HP Photosmart C7280 printer. We have had no areas of concern for the many years we have used the HP 02 inkjet products. HP has excellent products in various arenas. We purchase HP products because we feel very assured the HP product is one of the best quality products available.
Never any trouble when I use HP ink for my HP printer. Staples is my best source for all my printing needs. My only complaint is that Staples CLOSED its store which was less than a mile from me. The Stone Mountain, GA Staples store was so very convenient. Now I have to drive about 7 or 8 miles to the Scenic Highway store, or to Tucker, Ga. Less convenient for me, but well worth it. One nice extra benefit is the Staples program giving credit for empty ink cartridges. Keep that program going. Thanks!
I have learned to pick up replacement cartridges as I need them so it is nice to be able to get them locally. The copier will not accept a cartridge that is outdated even if had never been opened. Watch out.
This Magenta ink cartridge arrived and when installed in my printer it was 1/2 empty. This is the only time I have had trouble with ink cartridges ordered from you and I was surprised and disappointed. Either it was a very old cartridge or a defective one.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I have often thought of buying refilled ink cartridges from a discount vendor, but resisted the temptation. These HP cartridges are expensive, but they are reliable. I have had my HP D7160 Printer for years, and never had any problems producing excellent quality photograph prints and documents.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
