HP 02XL High Yield Ink Cartridge performs better than the regular cartridge in that it is brighter and lasts much, much longer. The HP XL Ink Cartridge is very easy to install and the cost, while slightly higher than the regular cartridge, is well worth the price. It makes a lot of sense to spend a few cents more to get a longer lasting supply of brighter ink that saves you time to use because you don't have to stop and replace it nearly as often. I really prefer to use the longer lasting product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
