I was nerveous about purchasing ink cartridges online, but figured, if there was a problem, I have the back up of Amazon's guarantee and easy returns. So I got my ink cartirdges within 2 days, opened them up, put them in and did the cartridge alignment and test print. It worked perfectly! Once I finished installing them and printing the test print, I got a pop up on my screen that said thank you for purchasing authentic HP ink cartirdges, for doing so you are eligbble for a free reward-choose your reward! I had a list of about 6 choices of rewards and choose free photo creations software. I downloaded it, installed it and started playing with it. So, I got cheaper ink than purchasing in a store, saved on gas and time by buying them online, got the perfect product that works great and got a free photo software for doing so! Add fast and free shipping to all that and you have one super duper happy and excited customer! I love Amazon.com! and of course, my bank account and hubby are happy about all the savings too!!!! Oh, and the company sent me info for the next purchase too-they will take care of any issues if any should arise and they offered 10% off future purchases! WIN WIN WIN WIN! Can't go wrong by buying your ink online shipped by amazon and sold by Texas Discount Electronics! Thank you Texasdiscountelectronics and Amazon!

I am using these HP 61 cartridges in an HP Deskjet 3054A, just like my printer's directions say to do. You can always double check to make sure this cartridge will work in your printer by using Amazon's helpful tool near the top of the product page.

I've purchased and used these cartridge several times without any problems. Their lifespan is average--it doesn't run out too quickly but I have had to replace it every couple months after moderate printing (maybe 10-15 color pages per week).

The price of this ink is fairly low relative to that of many black inks on the market, so if it works in your printer you stand to save a bit of money. Keep in mind that there a number of other versions of these products: single packs, twin packs, and extra large capacity single packs. Depending on their prices, these may be better deals than this combo pack.

My analysis has shown that the cheapest way to buy HP 61 inks is as follows: buy the single pack of the color cartridge FROM AMAZON (HP 61 Tri-Color Ink Cartridge in Retail Packaging (CH562WN#140)) and the twin pack of the black cartridge FROM STAPLES (HP No. 61 Ink Cartridge, Twin Pack, Black). Shipping on ink is free at Staples.com, and of course it is free at Amazon.com if you're a Prime member. Prices fluctuate, but buying this way averages out to about the same cost as buying this combo pack--the advantage here is you can return empty cartridges to Staples to get $2 store credit per cartridge. Then use the credits when you buy your black twin packs from Staples, and you'll effectively save $4 every cycle. It's a good way to go if you go through a moderate/large amount of ink.

Works great in my HP Envy 5530. I read many of the reviews about how this combo pack (black & tri-color) didn't work in some printers. Then when I entered my printer's model number into amazon, it told me that it wasn't compatable with my printer. I thought it was weird, because I thought all "61" ink should work in all printers that take "61" ink.
I decided to take my chances and purchase this HP 61 ink set anyways and I am glad I did. It works perfectly in my printer. When I received the ink, I checked the side of the box and my printer was listed. Here is the list of printers that are listed as compatable on the box:

HP Deskjet - 1000, 1010, 1012, 1050, 1051, 1055, 1056, 1510, 1512, 1514, 2050, 2510, 2512, 2514, 2540, 2541, 2542, 2543, 2544, 3000, 3050, 3050A, 3051A, 3052A, 3054, 3054A, 3056A, 3510, 3511, 3512.

HP Envy - 4500, 4501, 4502, 4504, 4505, 5530, 5531, 5532, 5535, 5539.

HP Officejet - 2620, 4630, 4631, 4632, 4635.

I hope this helps and clears up the confusion that everyone might be having.

This combo pack has one HP 61 black ink cartridge and one HP 61 Tri-color ink cartridge. These ink cartridges are both reliable and useful simply because they work very well with my HP Deskjet 3050 printer. For example, the cartridges slip easily into and out of place with a perfect fit; and the ink never runs or takes any time to dry.

The only thing you need to remember is to remove the pink strip of tape covering each cartridge before installing it.
If you print a lot, stock up on these if you catch a sale on them!

I recommend this product.

I did not know this until after my 30 day return period was over because I do not use my printer a lot..My printer kept asking me to print the test sheet every time I tried to print anything and then it gave me a message that it was counterfeit or previously used and refilled..I bought it as a new genuine HP ink cartridge combo pack.

The cartridges I received are not enclosed in a box as pictured. Two plastic type sacks, what I would expect to find in a box, were taped together with an address type label printed with a bar code on it stuck to one side. The supplier was Ship It Depot Inc.

These are obviously HP cartridges but I'm concerned about age and etc. considering they are not packaged in a box.

It will be a while before I can try these cartridges as the printer I just purchased came with cartridges. I will update this review and rating after I use the product.
