They don't work properly. the color is not true and it is not functioning properly. I utilize them for copies of sheets that need filing and that is alright, but they should work much better than they do. I run a Mission Center and this is a business expense. I think they are a terrific bargain, but they don't function properly and in true color as advertised. I think if I complained they would replace them, but I don't want to cause problems.
The first cartridge dis not work and the second printed only about 10 pages before going bad. There is supposedly a 1 year warranty on them bet there is no address to return them. Unfortunately I had them past the date to return them to Overstock.
I have 2 printers that use these. Often (40% of the time) you put the cartridge into the printer and the ink cartridge light blinks and the printer refuses to print. Both printers agree on a given cartridge, but once you get the blinking light, it isn't going to work
After seeing all of the good reviews for these refurbished color cartridges for my HP printer, I bought 2 of them. The first cartridge printed no color at all. The second one printed all color as yellow and green. Horrible. I have not had any good luck with refurbished color ink jet cartridges for HP from any 3rd party distributor. These were by far the worst. I could not even use them. What's worse, I bought them as backups, did not open and test them when they arrrive, so the return period has long since passed. This is my first unhappy purchase ever from Overstock. I will say that I purchased the HP 45 (black) at the same time and those seem to be working fine.
Just as good as the original. There were no issues with this product although most manufactures advise not to buy them

I purchased the multiple set and NEITHER cartridge worked. When inserted in the printer, I kept getting the printer error message to change color cartridge the message you get when the cartridge is finished. I had not used them for a couple months after purchase, but they should not have been dried out. Unfortunately, because it had been over the 30 days of purchase, I could not return them to O for a refund. They did, however, give me a $10 credit on my account. I have since purchased these singly and they work better, but the quality is not that great. I have a new printer with a different cartridge. So I am now only ordering these to use up two Black cartridges before I make the switch AND because they are SO MUCH CHEAPER than the HP original. My recommendation would be to purchase these singly and install them right away to ensure they are not dried out, so you can return them, if needed.
- How accurate was the sizing? N/A - Fit printer
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor quality
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No - were dried out after sittin forsevera months
I think by now I have learned my lesson. I have ordered these recycled ink cartridges several times through Overstock and, depending on which one you order, it seems they come from different 3rd party vendors based on the packaging. My last orders came from some no-name company out of China. Of the two HP78 cartridges, one was dry (or at least no ink came out) and the other one had totally leaked within the plastic sealed packaging (thank God it was sealed). I didn't even try to open it or I would have had a real mess. This is not the first time I have had bad cartridges on these orders. Sometimes I had them over 30 days so they are not returnable; other times it was just such a pain I didn't try. But I don't think I really saved any money by getting these refilled cartridges given the number that failed. I would not recommend these through Overstock. Don't get me wrong, I like Overstock but not the ink cartridges they sell. Recommend you save yourself some trouble and find another source or simple buy new.
The product came and the colors were washed out and in the case of the second unit was missing the blue (or it was dry). The price and the mess of returning the item was not worth the problem.This is the second attempt to use the color cartridges and with the price, I just will buy a new HP Cartridge.
