This is the first time I have ever purchased "refurbished" ink cartridges and am glad that I did. This is a great value. These 5 cartridges cost less than what I would have to spend to buy 2 cartridges at my local discount store. When I received them, I opened all of the packages to make certain each one worked properly. They did. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars was that the quality seemed to be slightly less than that of an actual HP ink cartridge. Whenever I print letters, I notice that the type does not seem as sharp and crisp with these cartridges. This is not overly noticeable unless you are needing to print a very high quality item ( such as a resume ) and need it to look absolutely perfect. For regular, everyday use, I will continue to buy and use these cartridges. Thank you, Overstock, for offering this product.
