Tired of paying $15 for each cartridge I decided to look for a cheaper solution. I figured I could risk $3-4 on the Monoprice ink. I was elated to find that it worked just as good as Brother's Arabella ink. The colors are rich and the cheapskate in me doesn't cringe every time I print a page.
Price savings cannot be better and everything works great. Instead of the original large orange plastic lever to remove on the cartridge you just put this compatible in the printer lock it in and enjoy! Simple when it works as a replacement should.
PROS: Just replaced all the original four cartridges. All functions including computer reading ink levels are perfect! Working great for both pictures and text printing. Great quality.
The cost of this cartridge can't be beat. My only disappointment is that it didn't last very long. The description states it can print up to 600 pages, but I definitely got less than 100 pages before my printer stated that the ink was low. I don't print much at all so I thought this would last a lot longer. So much for "high yield". Maybe I got a bad cartridge, I don't know. I will probably buy again simply because of the cost. We'll see.
Thank you for your review. And I am truly sorry to hear of your experience you have had with this product. For now, if you prefer, I can assist you in setting you up for a replacement on the item if you haven't done so already. We do have a lifetime warranty on cables as well as a 1 year warranty for everything else. It will be of no additional cost to obtain a replacement, so please let me know if you want to continue. Thank you!

Order arrived on time and in good condition. Not planning to use any time soon, so no further comment available.
The ink is impossibly inexpensive. I have done personal side-by-side comparisons and have a hard time telling the difference between this and OEM ink. Sometimes the cartridges don't last as long as I think they should, but I don't really pay attention to my printing habits very much. In the end though, I just always keep at least 1 on my shelf and couldn't be happier.
