Rated 2 out of 5 by Not sure how to respond. Ink runs out too quickly! May 14, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very expensive and very bad I pay a high price to make sure to receive a quality product, colors fail and do not work well, hp do not provide an option for returns for customers dissatisfied with the product. I buy a generic less than half the price and works very well must better than the original. May 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Price is good buy it May 14, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrated with 78 cartridges I love HP products and I happen to own an older printer-DeskJet 970Cxi, which works wonderfully. My frustration is with the HP78 color ink cartridges. It seems to be hit and miss whether or not they will work. I order from HP thinking it is safer, but the recent one I bought is terribly flawed. When I spend almost $40 I need it to work. No colors print correctly and with the test sheet print out, I should see red, yellow, and blue. Not there. Instead of receiving a negative review from me, how about sending me a new cartridge that I really need? At that point I will return this one. I would really appreciate it. August 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by HP78 TRI COLOR CARTRIDGE We've had our G85 for a very long time, we use only HP cartridges and we've been completely satisfied. People try to get us to upgrade but why should we? It works and I've printed beautiful color photos. We'll use it til it dies and hope that won't happen for a long time. March 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We will see how long these last. I am tired of buying cartridges from Wal-Mart and having them run out of ink. I bought these as a test - we shall see. The cartridges from HP are supposed to last twice as long..I hope so! The ordering was great and the shipping was terrific - they were delivered on a Saturday. I couldn't ask for better.
