What can you say about an ink cartridge, it is what it is. The colours are mostly fine and serve the purpose of an office inkjet printer adequately. The life span of the cartridge is also acceptable for the price but to be fair I have never compared it to any of the cheap alternatives. I don't think this ink or the printer I use it on will ever produce the greatest quality photos in the world but that's not what I bought it for. For every day document use in an office environment this ink serves the purpose.
