Truth about inks...
Though HP inks are good and the XL (extra large amount in the same-sized container needed for whichever printer one has) is the better bang for the buck, ALL inks are way over priced. There is no way the tiny amount of ink in the little cartridges is worth $30 - $60!! However, those of us with printers always need inks.
This being said, go for the xl inks, unless you rarely print anything. In time they could eventually dry out. The regular cartridge is SO short-filled with ink...and they won't print many pages. Before you know it, you're spending $20-some, or more!, for another chincy amount of ink. So add a few more dollars to your spending and get an XL....it does last much longer. Example: HP 61XL black ink would be a search term...but again, the number of the ink has to be for your printer requirements.Read full review
