Ink Sell Informative - An Inkling of Poor Ink Cartridge Quality

Review by virginiasoreback on 2005-04-21
I use a "whole-lot" of ink; stored in "expensive" cartridges.

As a cost saver I have bought and used ink refill kits (usually had good results). I decided to follow Computer Goddess/Guru Kim Komando's (paid) recommendation to purchase remanufactured cartridges from Ink Sell - to save about 1/3 of the cost of HP cartridges.

Ink Sells Associates are very courteous and the Tech Support Staff seems to be knowledgeable and are helpful.

But, I was disappointed with the performance of the cartridges. The ink seemed to dry rapidly in the cartridges - blocking the print heads.

Ink Sell suggested soaking the print heads in about 2 inches of warm or hot water for about an hour; didn't help.

I returned one (Black) for replacement; gave-up on the Tri-Color and tossed it. The replacement, too, was a near dud.

I went back to paying "Market Rate" ('through-the-nose') for new HP Cartridges. You can buy an HP Printer (and other brands) for "pocket change;" but you need a "Bank Loan" to purchase cartridges. HP and others planned it that way.

I'm not knocking Ink Sell. But, I had a "bad experience" and decided not to take a chance on getting "burned twice."

"$if;" you do not disappoint! You are quick with a Dodge City kind of 'hair trigger.'
No doubt "zz;" "slim2none," et al, can't be far behind; "Vultures-of-a-feather-do-flock and flog-together; on the double. This flock confuses carrion with vibrant living "B.U.T.T. kickers!"

Let the swooping and hovering begin!" YeeeeeHaaaaw!

Little known fact: That most companies which make printers is- that by using an ink cart which isn't theirs- that one can simply void any warranty on the device.
