After having some issues with the black cartridge I received with this order, I hesitated to install this one. Once that was worked out, I installed the color, but the printer did not immediately recognize this cartridge and so would not print. I cleaned the contacts, and it seemed to do the trick. The color quality isn't spectacular, but since the printer is a backup and doesn't get used all that often, I'm fine with it, especially for the price. I have a laser color printer for my better color work. For now, i just want to be able to print decent color documents for general use, and these cartridges will save me a lot of money.
PROS: The price
CONS: Didn't work automatically. Takes a little jiggering.
They're good I know they'll work. I used to feel like I knew a little secret: where to get cheap but good inkjet carts. But the prices keep creeping up and now I have a harder time pulling the trigger on the deal. It's still a good deal, I suppose. On 8/23/2011, I bought one of these for $5.89. On 5/16/2012, I got one for $7.43. Now it's $9.99. But some Epson carts I'm ordering from Monoprice are less than $2.00 each. Monoprice, please lower the price a little! (I'm not dropping the rating because the product is still stellar)
PROS: I've bought these cartridges twice before and they've been great each and every time.
