Keep using the cartridge until your pages come dim, it is good long after it says to replace. Have been printing for a whole month after it said to replace and still have color...print about 25 pages a week every week.
I have bought Laxmark ink for my printer on many occaisions. It takes a #1 cartridge. I am familiar with the red box with the large numeral "1" on it. I was therefore surprised to find a very similar box, with a "1" on it in much the same way as the usual, with the exception that this box was black. Upon actually using the cartridge however, I discovered that my printer objected to the use of an apparently foreign (i.e. non-standard) cartridge, and also each time I try to print something, I am advised that my cartridge is out of ink, which is simply not true. BTW - although the cartridge was black as I noted above, the picture for this product is the more familiar, but apparently unattainable red-box variety.)
I print about 15 pages a week and I am buying new ink all the time. The ink is so expensive, and my walmart never has it in stock so I have to drive 20 minutes out of the way to get it. I would not tell anyone to buy any type of printer that needs this ink.
The printer is excellent (as was my last Lexmark)...the ink is waaaaaay too expensive for how long it lasts. We don't print that much and seem to need to replace the cartridge every two weeks or so. Single cartridge is convenient but after awhile...you only get reddish ink, which is OK...just not for school projects or formal letters.
I have used my Lexmark x3470 for years in my home office (daily use). For the price, it is a decent printer/scanner/copier. The paradox of a single ink cartridge is that it uses all the colors to create black ink. So unlike printers that have a separate black ink cartridge, you burn ink at a much FASTER rate when printing black & white documents than when printing color (photos, flyers, etc.). Normally, printing black & white is cheaper - not so here.
Keep printing until the ink fades and changes colors (I usually burn the red out first, so my docs turn blue). I buy the multi-pack. When I insert the last new cartridge - order a new pack (online) to have on hand. Best wishes!
good value not to have to wait in line to purchase.
The reviewer that said this goes farther than you would think is correct in that you can usually get more "life" out of this than when it says to replace. That being said, it still runs out VERY quickly. The printer itself works fine. It's flimsy, the scanner is a bit slow and finicky at times, but overall an ok printer (I know, this isn't about the printer). The real issue is with this "all in one" cartridge. Yes, it's great that its' one single cartridge & super easy to replace. Because of that, however, sometimes you are left with a cartridge that still has usable color ink, but you need to print in black. Sometimes it is the other way around. The big disadvantage is that most people use more black ink than color, so it runs out more quickly, then you are stuck with a cartridge that is essentially useless because there are a few random colors left, but no black and oftentimes no blue, etc. We got this printer free with our computer, so we can't complain too much. But it is just such a hassle & at $25 a cartridge & having to replace it every month or two depending on how much printing you do, it really outweighs the value of the printer. We will hopefully be replacing it soon.
This is the last Lexmark printer I will buy. The cartridge only last a very short time and at 25.00 a pop, that gets expensive quick.
Good Ink Cartridge just pop it in and start printing.
The nice thing about this printer cartridge is that it's the only one you need and you can print in any color, or black; and the cartridge is pretty cheap too. Easy to install. Works a long time (especially if you're okay with red printouts for a while).
I had purchased No. 1 print cartridges which were NOT by Lexmark and paid the price for green lined pictures. Now I only buy the authentic Lexmark from Walmart, where I know I get a great product at a competitive price. Thanks Walmart!!!
This product is great because all ink is in ONE cartridge! Convenient and inexpensive.
I have bought this a couple times, everytime I do I have to spend more money and get to print less and less pages. I am very unhappy and am thinking of getting a new printer!!!!!!!
i love this i have printed over 100 pages with a single cartrage on normal quiality settings have had printer little over a year and well only replaced ink once that was 6 months ago not had to replace the second one yet
IT'S THE BEST SO FAR SO GOOD TO LEXMARK FOR IT'S PRODUCTS AND THE PRINTER'S AS WELL.
I am very happy to have gotten this item online and find it in stock. When you go to the store it is always sold out. I know in the future I will be going onlinw to get and have it ship to the house again. It is the only ink catridge that works for my printer.
Easy installation, fast shipping, overall excellent product...
great deal, much cheaper than office supply stores. easy to order online and pick up at store.
so easy will do on a regular basis.
Thank You WAL-MART
Due to the fact I am not always able to buy
this product at local WalMart stores, it has been
very helpful to me to be able to buy it online. We
have to drive 30-32 miles to the nearest WalMart
and they do not always have it in stock. I like
my little Lexmark Printer Z730 and would not
want to change printers because of not being able
to buy Ink cartridges for mine.
It is exactly what we needed for our printer.It arrived in really great shape,whoever packed the box did a great job!
