This ink cartridge does not print "200 pages." I put in a new cartridge before printing Christmas letters because I wanted to walk away from the print job. After printing 125 pages, I noticed the last few pages were too light to read. I thought it might be because I printed 125 pages in a row, but after waiting about 30 minutes,I reprinted the last few pages, The first page came out fine, but the next few got lighter and lighter. II got about 120 complete pages out of the cartridge. For the record, I was printing in draft mode, which I have found does a fine job for print quality of text, on a HP Photosmart C4385. If the ink runs out so quickly in draft mode, I'd hate to see the performance of this product on normal or best.

The main reason I don't recommend the product, the prices for the ink are outrageous. Also the printer performed well enough in the beginning, it now started to eat paper which is extremely hard to remove and the carriage kept getting stuck. Both are common complaints on the internet. With an almost full XL color cartridge left, I gave it to Goodwill.

Not much to compare this with. A little disappointing upon initial installation as parts of a document were lighter (gray). Hopefully this will improve with a little more use.

Don't Buy the Imitations

I thought I'd try one of those cheaper ink cartridges to save some money, and which are advertised all over the internet. BIG MISTAKE!! No matter what their ads tell you that they equal or exceed the manufacturer's specifications, don't believe it. I purchased one black and one color cartridge for my HP printer and both of them quit before I was able to use up all the ink so any savings were lost. The print quality was inferior with intermittent smudging of the ink. Also, the printer after some time didn't recognize the carrtridges and wouldn't print. Lesson learned. I'm back with HP ink cartridges... for good!!

74XL cartridge died while it was still over half full. Must have been the chip. All contacts looked clean but I cleaned them anyway. I still get the message the cartridge is incompatible. It is an original (not refilled) HP 74XL that worked in the printer for over a year. I don't print much so the cartridge passed the warranty date. In my old printer cartridges worked until they ran out of ink. My old printer even worked with refilled cartridges. This new printer combo (Photosmart C5580 and 74XL) has been a disappointment.

At one time 400 pages per cartridge was advertised. Now the price has gone down so has the number of pages. In reality, I got less than 200 pages from my last cartridge, more like 125 to 150. When it prints, it prints good, just not many pages. I know you can do better than that. I'm still looking for a good deal from someone. Will it be HP or someone else? Cost to me is 0.075 cents per page at 200 pages per cartridge and 0.12 cents a page at 125 pages per cartridge. That's not cheap or even reasonable the way I see it.

I purchased an HP All-In-One for additional work sometimes done at home. I don't feel like I ever get even 100 copies out of this cartridge, even though I keep the printer on the lowest quality print setting. I also tried getting the XL in this cartridge, and got a little less than double of what I normally get. HP needs to improve these cartridges as they are far too expensive for the results received. On a positive note, I will say that the print quality is good, even on the lowest setting.

There is no way this cartridge has any greater endurance than the rest. At 750 copies per cartridge that means that my cartridge that lasted 6 months printed approximately 125/month...I AM A STAY-HOME MOM! This cartridge is on my printer that I use only for household things and photos... I can say I may have printed 50 photos total... Doesn't add up to me. Overall, six months is a good amount of time for a cartridge to last...I have had other HP cartridges last a year..

installation easy. took a while for printer to recognize the print cartridge. said often it was wrong. printed well for about twenty pages then began losing readability, alternate lines very light. took a long time to get to the particular help page , after running through all of the normal list of how to solve the issue. Now I need to find some distilled water in order to clean some part. Hopefully it will work. the ink came very q uickly.

Not enough pages printed

I agree wholeheartedly with the other review of this product. I have been printing a lot of material for a book I'm writing and have not been able to get more than 125 clear pages from a single cartridge, even when using the draft mode. There's no way you can get more from these cartridges unless you're writing on only part of the page. A normal manuscript, which uses the whole page, will drink the ink very quickly.

Runs out quickly

First things first, the 74XL does not work on my printer. It is supposed to work on it but the printer doesn't accept it. So I'm left with th 74. I am a low-moderate user of my printer and this cartridge runs out very quickly. I'm disappointed at how little ink is actually in the cartridge. The good news is that they're cheap so I can have them on hand for when I suddenly run out and get unreadably faint printouts.

I've expressed this opinion before, while HP's cartridge price is competitive the Ink in the cartridge seems to have been reduced significantly over the years. I have a very old HP printer and while it has performed flawlessly the next time I need to purchase a printer I will seriously consider another brand based on this (perceived) perception. thank you for allowing me to express my opinion
