My order came from 'The Witz and Sons', fulfilled by Amazon.

I've bought HP ink through Amazon for years and never once had an issue. This time what I received was questionable.

The product is advertised as being in retail packaging, and the photo shows an HP package.

However, when I opened the Amazon box, what was inside was not in an HP retail box. Instead the ink cartridge arrived "unboxed." There was no HP cardboard box. It arrived in only the HP inner foil package. That means there was NO HP box, NO UPC and, of course, NO explicit expiration date listed.

The only thing on the package, outside of the HP logo, is a foil code. In my case the foil code is SG2 110800 100218 1133. I happen to be familiar with the codes on HP foil, so reading the two sets of six numbers in yymmdd format, I was able to see that what I was sent had an "ink warranty" that expired about 9 months ago back in August 2011 (110800), and was produced in February of 2010 (100218).

While many people use ink past the warranty date, that should be the choice of the consumer. Here, it seems likely the seller removed the box to try to pass off a "old" product as fresh, which is deceitful, at best.

Beware: The ink I received was 2-3/4 years old. The HP carton was the old light-blue design, and the inner bag was printed "OCT09" (I received it June 2012). I haven't installed the cartridge yet, so I don't know if it will work.

On 8/22/13 I ordered an HP 57 Tri-color ink cartridge in Retail Packaging. It arrived promptly on 8/27/13. That was great. What was not so great is that a difficult to remove sticker had been STRATEGICALLY placed over the cartridge's warranty expiration date. Carefully removing the sticker I saw that the warranty expired MARCH 2010. The cartridge was more than 3 years past its expiration date. The warranty date should be at least one year from the date purchased. Amazon's customer service promptly issued a credit and a pre-paid return label. But if a customer doesn't know to look at the expiration date they'd have a cartridge that either wouldn't work at all or one that would dry up well beyond Amazon's 30 return policy.

My feelings about Amazon.com are usually positive but they need to do a better job of monitoring their Marketplace suppliers.

I just purchased the HP photosmart 100 printer which prints out 4" by 6" size prints. The printer takes the HP #57 cartridge and the photo quality results are great. You would even say that they match the quality of a professional lab. I have already printed well over 50 prints and have not needed to change the cartridge. The colors and skin tones are right on and the glossy HP PHOTO PAPER makes all the differance. Also two of my friends, after seeing my photos, have also bought the HP photosamart printer. Another great feature feature of the printer is you do not need a pc to support it, it directlly accepts smart media, compact flash and sony memory stick. I know this sounds like a review for the printer but lets not forget without the HP #57 color cartrige you have no photos.

I use HP 57 and HP 58 cartridges for 6-ink photo printing on my HP PSC 2210 multifunction machine. The photos look great on HP premium photo paper, just like the ones from my local 1-hour photo center. However, after 20 pages (about 60 4*6 photos), the HP 58 cartridge is gone, and there is only about 1/4 left on the HP 57 cartridge. This is killing me. I will just use the local photo lab from now on :-(

I have found that using "genuine" HP ink is much better than the other options of refilled cartridges or imitations. The color is better, ink lasts longer, and I've never had a problem of any kind with these.

Since I use a LOT of ink, I have searched stores both online and brick and mortar, and these are the best prices I've found anywhere... especially when they often have free shipping.

Sadly there are Amazon affiliated merchants out there who are selling printer ink cartridges with expiration dates that have long since passed. Ask before you buy or don't buy. Amazon could do us a favor and refuse to allow these unscrupulous vendors to be affiliated with them. I will never again buy a printer ink cartridge in this way. I'll just go to a retail establishment where I can look at the dates stamped on the packages.

I use this cartridge in an HP DeskJet 5150 printer. The printer always yields crisp, well defined color prints. Unlike some people I think that the cartridge lasts a reasonable amount of time, although I don't print photos very often, which can definitely use ink at a voracious pace.

My biggest criticism of HP cartridges in general is the price, but the price here at Amazon is the best I have found, and I think the Amazon price point, particularly combined with free shipping and no tax makes this cartridge reasonably priced. Having said all that, there is one area where the product could be improved, which is the pronounced tendency of the ink to smear when wet. I realize that this is a not-unusual trait of inkjet printers, but I am more acutely aware of the problem with this printer and ink combination than with most other inkjet printers I have used.

Overall the HP 57 is a good value for the money, particularly if you shop around for good deals.
