I recently received a notice about a class action suit against HP related to the high ink usage of the 6500 printer that uses this ink.

It seems that the normal default setup for the printer uses all 4 inks when printing black! To lengthen the life of the color inks, you need to change your defaults so that it prints in black and white, using only the color ink. I need to look at the quality if I set the default to 'draft quality' as well.

That last part is on a menu with the choices being 'High quality' and 'black ink only'.

If you set your printer defaults to this, you'll need to modify the print setup on a request basis when you want print in color.

The color ink should last a lot longer with this.

Edited on June 10, 2012 to add: I've purchased these several times, and the last time I thought I got a bad set, but actually the cartridges are fine. Owners of this printer know that the cartridges fit into a cartridge holder, and that the ink flows through this holder to the paper. After a while, the cartridge holder gets clogged up and while I bought a new one, before I installed it, I decided to try the internet advice to wash out the old holder. I'm lazy, I ran the holder through the dishwasher (after making sure there was no food debris in the machine) and took it out before the heat/dry cycle started. I blasted the water away with canned air and then let the holder air dry over night and my printer is good as new.

Edited on February 19, 2011 to add: Be aware that the low ink indicator on your printer is not very accurate. Recently I experimented by leaving the old cartridges in until the printer would not print. These 920XL cartridges continued to print for nearly three months AFTER the printer indicted that they were empty.

Having owned laser printers exclusively until last October (2009), I was spoiled by how long laser cartridges last. Last fall I bought the HP 6500 printer to replace an old and increasingly balky laser printer. I am delighted with the print quality of my printer, by I was shocked by the short life of the color cartridges.

Thankfully I found these XL cartridges, and while they won't outlast a laser printer's, they are far superior to the standard ones. I'm delighted with the print quality and longevity of these.

I have worked with computers, printers, and technology in general for the last 11 years. I also sell and service PCs, consult, and spent 3 years as an assistant to our Systems Administrator helping manage 28 printers and 112 workstations. We use HP products exclusively when it comes to printers and the original HP Branded cartridges when replacing ink. I have tried refills, generics, etc. and nothing I have used comes close. I own 2 HP printers with one being a 6500 all-in-one wireless. I use this printer each Sunday to print fifty-five 8-12 page PowerPoint handouts and I have always opted for the XL version. The additional ink over the normal size cartridge is a bargain when actually calculating milliliters-per-penny.
These same 4 cartridges purchased at a local Wal-Mart would cost you $110.00. This is a great bargain for quality ink. I DO buy singles from time to time as I always run out of one of the 3 colors more quickly than the other 2 but as a general rule, I buy this 4 pack.

I was happy that the product from Berry Products USA LLC was as advertised: HP 92XL Four Pack Black and Colors Ink Cartridge set which provides(1 each) of the 920 XL HP cartridges. HP 920XL Four Pack Black and Colors Ink Cartridge Set - (Black CD975AN, Yellow CD974AN, Cyan CD972AN, Magenta CD973AN) Sold in Retail Packaging They arrived quickly and were genuine per my HP 6500 E709n printer. My HP printer will not work if the cartridges do not pass their test. They passed. I gave it only 3 stars because some of the toner cartridges had expiration dates too close to the actual expiration date for my comfort. While it was packaged as a 4 set, each cartridge had it's own box and expirations date. Two were almost expired and the other 2 would expire in a few months. Other similar purchases from other vendors gave me much more leeway with the expiration date of these toner cartridges. If you like to stock up on ink toner cartridges, don't buy them from Berry Products USA. If you need to use them quickly anyway, this vendor is fine.

Pros: HP 920XL Four Pack Black and Colors Ink Cartridge Set - (Black CD975AN, Yellow CD974AN, Cyan CD972AN, Magenta CD973AN) Sold in Retail Packaging Extremely quick delivery time. Free shipping usually takes at least a week, not Toner Planet, my ink order was in the mail the same day.

Cons: None except the price dropped [...] bucks since I placed my order last week, that's life.

I received cartridges in good time, but I am constantly having to prime them with
alcohol They seem to be dried up, so the alcohol is what it takes to be able to use them.

When I needed to replace the ink cartridges in my printer I went first to the ordering page for the printer maker. Woo, the cost was so high I couldn't believe it. I had not paid that much for the printer itself! After more investigation I finally found this seller on Amazon.

My shipping label says The Witz & Sons in Lexington, Kentucky. The product I received was exactly what I had ordered and the cartridges have an expiration date well into 2013 so I don't have to worry about the freshness of the product. The cartridges came sealed in a plastic bag and are obviously brand new - not refilled. By utilizing the Prime shipping option I had the package in two days and the price was almost $50 less than I found it for sale at other stores.

I'm very pleased with the service, the quality of the product, and the price of this order. I would definitely use this company again for my printer ink cartridges.

I'm amazed at how much I have to spend on ink for my printer. I really do NOT like this printer, and I like less that I have to spend on the ink. The ink mysteriously seems to disappear at precisely the same time. Isn't that amazing? My husband has an Epson, and he only needs to change the ink that is low. He doesn't have to spend an arm and a leg for a new whole new set of cartridges everytime he needs a new one. And at $70 a pop, you'd think you'd get more prints out of it. But nope! You don't!!! And everytime you turn on the printer, you lose ink as it goes through it's clearing/warming process. The ONLY thing I can say about this ink is that the quality of the photo print (if you're printing photos, which I'm sure you won't be doing all the time, but consider in your mind that you will be), is phenominal. No, this ink and the printer I use that takes this ink has turned me against HP.

I was very pleased with the delivery time by the seller. It would have been nice if it had actually worked. I was pleased with Amazon's response to my complaint, who promptly initiated a refund to my account. I returned my cartridges and, since this the second time I have had an issue with ink cartridges from Amazon sellers, I will go back to purchasing from local office supply stores. I went straight to Office Depot and purchased a new cartridge which worked as soon as I installed it. This will be my last purchase from Amazon sellers of ink cartridges.

Amazon uses a variety of vendors to supply this HP product. It'll sometimes change day-to-day. When I ordered the product (HP 920XL four colors all XL size) it was being supplied by Slim's General Store (CDE). Critical issue for me on these inks is freshness. I buy when I've just installed a new cartridge because that's when it's top of mind, but then the cartridges will hang around on my shelf for months. These cartridges had an excellent date - all four boxes were dated either Feb or Mar 2013 (I placed this order Jul 2011). So kudos to Slim's, good price, amazon prime free 2-day shipping, and nice shelf life!
