Good value and performance
on 5 January 2014
I bought this cartridge after an annoying experience with some "compatible" cartridges where the ink level wasn't displayed, plus, every time I switched the PC or any other device networked to my HP 7520 multi-function printer you got a persistent warning "Non-compatible cartridges installed". I suspect a recent HP system upgrade installed these warnings and made them more persistent. Despite following instructions from the "compatible" cartridge supplier I couldn't get rid of the warnings.
The quality of these HP cartridges is first rate - accurate colours, no streaking and clear ink level indications plus there's the added extra that our local animal charity can recycle HP original cartridges to raise funds but not compatibles. The page yield is also consistent between the two - I get just as many pages from these HP cartridges as I did from my compatibles.
Apart from the issue above the other thing which persuaded me to switch to HP originals is that now the price differential between quality compatibles and HP originals has narrowed considerably - take a look. I'm not sure whether it's a case of HP doing the right thing and bringing their prices down or whether the "compatible" suppliers have got more confident and have raised their prices.
Yes, I might be a "victim" of recent HP system upgrades but they've helped me see that compatibles aren't always best in terms of performance and the saving in using them is no longer as great. Recommended.
