The only thing that would make it better is if it was free
We have been using monoprice ink for years. We ran out of black, and my wife needed to print something for work, so we made the trip to Staples. $32 plus tax. Painful. After that blow to my wallet, I decided to stock up. I ordered 5 cartridges, and with shipping, it was still less than the one from Staples. My wife teaches 2nd grade, so we blow through LOTS of ink. Monoprice makes it affordable. The quality of the ink and longevity of the cartridges are comparable with the much more expensive options. I have recommended monoprice to many people for ink, and have never had anyone complain at all. I showed one friend that his normally $100 laser cartridge was only $16.99, and he almost did a dance. I am currently shopping for a new printer, and one of my main considerations is whether or not Monoprice stocks the ink or toner cartridge.
PROS: PRICE!!! Roughly 13% of retail cost (not counting shipping, which is about $5) Comparable color quality to Brother retail ink. Comparable life span of cartridge to Brother retail ink.
CONS: I have put about 50 monoprice cartridges through my printer over the years, and I have not had one complaint. The ONLY problem is if you need it NOW, you have to wait a few days for it to arrive, but even then, their standard shipping gets to me in 2-3 days.
I was excited to finally see my printer's ink on Monoprice. I've been coming to Monoprice for all my cables, adapters and anything else I needed for years and have never been disappointed. Here is another product that met my expectations. Ink cartridge performs as well as the original (in my opinion) and seems to last just as long. Even if it doesn't at this price i don't care. I let my 5 year old print whatever he wants in color now with no worries.
PROS: Just as good as the original. Seems to last just as long
I will always order my ink from Monoprice. You can't beat the quality and price. I highly recommend this ink for anyone who prints quite frequently and you don't have to pay high prices at your local office supplies store. Keep up the great service and products Monoprice.
PROS: Long lasting, awesome price, great quality ink!!
Thank you for your awesome prices and items. I never really have a problem with my orders or have to return anything (or call in). However, with this order one of the black ink cartridges was defective, meaning, as soon as I inserted it, nothing printed, when I opened the printer, and removed the cartridge , the black ink was leaking out. Luckily, I ordered two, so I quickly replaced it. I been so busy & still haven't reported this to Monoprice, so they can replace it. Otherwise, everything good~
PROS: This ink does the same job as what you would find at Office Depot, Staples, etc - of course, for a better price. The quality of the print is quite acceptable.
CONS: The only "con" I would bring up would be that occassionally I do receive a defective cartridge, which happened with this order. I just haven't had time to call Monoprice and report it. They are pretty good at replacing your defective ink cartridge at no charge & ship out promptly.
