Come on Amazon! this is surely false advertising, the picture and description are of a genuine HP inkjet cartridge with no suggestion of it being a recycled item, but a recycled item is what I've received, I have not used this yet so I can't comment on it's quality and ability to print the same as the genuine HP item. I just hope it will be better than some of the previous recycled inkjet cartridges (not from this supplier) I have bought from Amazon which have not been up to the job, bad photo printing and short life in the main.

The 4 cartridges that I received are not the ones advertised. The picture suggests that these are HP cartridges, but the ones sent are recycled, called IJT Inkjets and Toners, suitable for HP. I was really disappointed.

Excellent quality ink and rendition. Good value at around £10, but overpriced if bought at HP Manufacturer's list price (like most inkjet inks and similar consumables)

The initial photos show the newer cartridges which can print far more pages.
But once clicked the cartridges appear to actually be the smaller and older versions - with less ink.
It looks like people are being led into buying the smaller version while thinking they are getting the bigger ones.
Worth checking!!

The product received is NOT as shown in the picture.
The cartridge comes in a HP wrapping which I've never seen before.
I doubt that this is a genuine HP product.
It is very disappointing to get a sub-standard product from amazon.

To be fair, I haven't actually used it so I cannot comment on its quality.

After trying cheap, own-brand replacement ink cartridges from local stores, I decided to go back to the 'proper' ones. The cheaper type don't last as long, in my experience, and certainly don't give as high a print quality. This black cartridge gives a clear, deep-black print and on Amazon the price is about the same as the store-bought alternatives. I'll stick to the originals from now on!

Although the inkjet cartridge is an original HP one, it did not come as described online on Amazon - looked as though it could have been part of a double pack originally. Although I haven't used it as yet, there is no dateon the pack as is usually the case. I am thereby worried that the print quality will not be as it should be and therefore not last as long as the 19ml cartridges normally do. This is the reason for the three stars only. Otherwise the product was received quickly and I may find my doubts infounded.

I bought a couple of cartidges from IJT - well DO NOT.
one failed early and the other refused to install - said it was faulty.
Nasty assistant was very unpleasant.
It took 3 weeks to replace it - meanwhile I bought this and it arrived 36 hours later (not 3 weeks IJT)
and it worked 1st time, all the time and the black is real black.
No feathered fonts, no smears and no hassle.

It arrived with an enormous sell by date, something like 3 years, so it is fresh and new.
I only tries and re-fill that one time - never ever again, just not worth the hassle.

Genuine HP
100% the better choice!
