I bought 3cartridges of ink cyan yellow and magenta from you guys and you can check my purchase date and believe me its already saying low on ink on my printer, I have a ho office jet 6500a that I use mainly for school with an average of only 20 per week color document I don't do pictures printing at all. On the hp web site it says it can do 300 pages well I am spreading running very low on them after only less than 50 prints altogether black and color. Very disappointed...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
These HP ink cartridges produce consistent and repeatable color from cartridge to cartridge. It is interesting that no matter where you buy them the quality is consistent. Another interesting personal observation is the the Expiration Date on the cartridge box is very lenient and cartridges a year past have produced good color without any visually noticeable color difference. A year past? Yes, when you buy several at a time, they don't all run out of ink on my HP6500 at the same time so occasionally one cartridge may be past it's Expiration Date.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
